Whittley Victoria Sales, the Whittley Marine Group's retail arm, is set to release the Clearwater AL boat range in time for customers to enjoy this summer. The new aluminium boat range consists of eight models across the popular runabout, side console, open boat, bow rider and sports fishing boat platforms, with BMT packages starting from less than $10,000 drive-away.

Located in Melbourne's northern suburbs, Whittley Victoria Sales caters to the expanding population within the stare's growth corridor. The premium boat sales outlet stocks both the new Clearwater AL affordable range of aluminum boats and Whittley's premium fiberglass boat packages.

Genevieve Whittley, Sales Assistant at Whittley Victoria Sales, had this to say about the launch of the affordable Clearwater AL range. "The decision to offer the Clearwater AL brand of alloy boats to the market was an easy one after extensive market research," Whittley Victoria Sales spokeswoman Genevieve Whittley said.

"We could see a demand from consumers, to offer high quality, affordable aluminum boat packages priced from less than $10,000 through to $35,000 whilst still offering the same exceptional customer service that our customers receive with larger boat packages."

Design of the Clearwater AL range was overseen in Whittley Marine Group's recently completed 5500-square-metre Victorian boat building and retail mega facility. The Clearwater AL range draws inspiration from the original John Savage aluminum hull designs, whilst incorporating the Whittley family's 60-plus years of boat design, development and boat building expertise. The result is a range of aluminum boat packages with a modern flair, designed to meet the needs of Victorian anglers and their families with larger models featuring flashy flat alloy sides.

"Our affordable alloy boat range is packaged exclusively with Yamaha outboard engines and sits on high-quality Dunbier trailers," Genevieve Whittley said "For added peace of mind, all Clearwater AL packages feature a limited three-year limited structural warranty on hulls. We also offer same day on-site finance and insurance options with Yamaha Motor Finance and Insurance."

The Clearwater AL brand consists of eight new models, across the 5 popular model configurations:

Whittley Clearwater AL King Fisher LX sports boat series: The two-model series incorporating the 433 and 389 King Fisher LX comes standard with many of the features that some competitors offer as options. The King Fisher LX series of tiller-steer sports fishing boats are just at home on rivers as they are lakes. Both models are ideally suited to Yamaha's F25 four-stroke outboard engine.

Whittley Clearwater AL Wide Body open boat series: This wide body series of tiller-steer open boats is an ideal introduction to boating and perfect for open bays and estuaries. It is available in 399 Cherokee WB and 435 Little Ripper WB models, and powered by Yamaha's F15 thru to F30 outboard engines.

Whittley Clearwater AL Nova side console series: Side console models are increasing in popularity. The 440 Nova SC features a flat-sided performance hull with a stable fishing platform ideal for the tournament or recreational anglers. The 440 Nova SC is accompanied by the larger 500 Nova SC model.

Whittley Clearwater AL Liberty Sports bow rider series: Aussies love bow rider boats. Clearwater AL offers the affordably priced 5.0-metre 500 Liberty Sports bow rider powered by Yamaha's powerful F70, making it perfect for watersports and family fishing. The 500 Liberty Sports features Clearwater AL's unique moulded fibreglass dashboard for extra appeal.

Whittley Clearwater AL Caballero runabout series: The flagship of the Clearwater AL series, the 500 Caballero RA is an ideal family fun and fishing machine. Featuring a folding rear lounge, walkthrough windscreen and carpeted flooring, this high-sided runabout is an ideal open bay boat.

The Clearwater AL boats represent exception value for money and include painted hulls, vinyl wraps and full-length floors. Larger models come fitted with a plumbed-in live bait tank anchor and navigation lights, bilge pumps, electric motor brackets, flat alloy sides and more.

"If you're looking for an aluminum boat package for under $35,000, I encourage you to come and explore a Clearwater AL boat package for your next family fishing boat," Genevieve Whittley said.

"Clearwater AL boats offer customers a proven hull design, with the industry's leading Yamaha outboard engines and sitting on a Dunbier trailer. This all adds up to a premium quality package at an affordable price."

The new range of affordable Clearwater AL Boats are on display at the Whittley Victoria Sales retail facility at 12/14 Somerton Park Drive, Campbellfield, Victoria.

The new aluminum range can also be bought online and shipped Australia-wide via the new Clearwater AL Boats website at
