|Whittley SL 28HT Sterndrive.
The best just got bigger and badder, and the horizon just got so much closer. In response to customer demands for an offshore-focused battle wagon capable of running to the canyons in greater comfort with a bigger payload, Whittley has come up with the goods. The company consulted the experts - the customers who play the ocean for big game - and engaged fishing and boating luminaries and listened to the boating media, asking one questions: "What do you want?". Distilling the responses and collating the data Whittley built their boat.
The SL 28HT is the largest Australian-made legally trailerable* sportfishing boat to hit the waves, and at just shy of 9m, it's no stripped-out fishing shell. This is every ounce a Whittley and doesn't sacrigice comfort for fishing prowess. It will even perform double duty as a family cruiser when and if the need arises.
But this rig was conceived first and foremost to tackle blue water and big fish, to compete and to win! It features a practical helm capable of housing a 12 inch head unit and will handle even the worst tackle junkie's collection.
The SL 28HT is available in single or twin outboard configurations, or you can power it with a fuel efficient Volvo Diesel sterndrive. Or for the ultimate in performance, consider Volvo's next-generation V8 380hp DPS Petrol Sterndrive.
Built tough and still capable of being towed behind large SUV's*, this big rig commands respect and refuses to be ignored.
