The Whittley CR 2180 comes with standard equipment all our competitors charge you extra for! Before making the decision to buy, have a quick look over what makes a Whittley so unique and be sure you are getting in the pocket cruiser you are looking at. And remember: Whittley build dedicated cruisers, not fishing boat models converted to cruisers.


Evolved from our legendary Voyager, the CR 2180 boasts a pedigree few can equal.

BMT standard packages starting from MRRP AUD $71,599 (model specific) ex factory*.

The CR 2180 is a true overnighter; a weekend live-aboard cruiser easily towed by a larger family car. Conceived by Whittley’s in-house design studio in response to customer demand, every effort has been made to optimise space, strength, size and weight. A unique hull arrangement of chines and strakes provides improved lift, reduced drag and superior handling, not to mention stability at rest.

Power comes from either petrol or diesel sterndrives and two- or four-stroke outboards.

Standard equipment includes full-length V-berth, lined cabin and moulded cabin liner. The galley features a good-sized sink, removable portable stove, pressurised freshwater system, nifty walkaround side decks and much more.

With familiar clean lines, integrated glass windscreen and moulded-in boarding platform, the CR 2180 offers a sleek alternative to the caravan set. Full camper covers and clears enhance its versatility and encourage adventurous families to hang out longer. Drop anchor in a cove, pull up on a beach, tie up at your chose marina, or wet a line and invite a fish to dinner.  

*MRRP. Manufacturers Recommended Retail Price. Includes GST, on water costs (pre-delivery charges), and an on-water hand over. Excludes safety equipment, registrations and freight. Advertised BMT price is for standard stern drive boat, motor and trailer packages.
