The Whittley SL 26 comes with standard equipment all our competitors charge you extra for!


A genuine blue water fishing machine, the Whittley SL 26 is a serious contender.

BMT standard packages starting from MRRP AUD $143,999 (model specific) ex factory*.

A finalist in TrailerBoat magazine’s Australia’s Greatest Boats contest in 2012, the big SL 26 is a thoroughbred born to tackle Mother Nature head on and return with its dignity – and passengers – intact. Powered by a choice of two- or fourstroke outboards, or petrol or diesel sterndrive, the SL 26 pampers its crew of up to seven and will comfortably fish four big blokes in the main cockpit without any intimacy issues.

With the creature comforts Whittley is renowned for, including toilet, galley and two showers, the SL 26 features a fully lined and upholstered cabin, with an oval table that drops down to complete an enormous V-berth.

Even with its luxuries, the boat’s plumbed live bait tank, stainless steel rod holders, self-draining cockpit, targa bar and rod storage define it as a sportfisher. There is sufficient space under the helm seat to stow an inflatable with a portable outboard, while you can choose an optional fibreglass hardtop with clears or opt for a fully enclosed version for further protection. The solid roof provides a convenient mount for radios inside or a radar dome outside, and grabrails and a solid stainless rocket launcher complete the picture.

*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.
