Default My Baby (Whittley 660)

Here's my baby Whittley, a 2005 Whittley 660 Cruiser that is pretty much like a floating caravan

Not the best for a fishing platform (but possible) as far too civilised with 2 x double beds, fridge, microwave, shower, toliet etc etc

Cruises at 22 knots, 32 litres/hr at 3200 rpm from a 4.3L V6 220MPI mercruiser.

At first I thought I'd scrape in under my 2500kg limit by using a american aluminium trailer what helped pull out 450kg in towing weight. I wasnt that lucky at 2650kg with 1/2 a tank of fuel so a good used 2010 manual NT Pajero has become my current tow platform.

Hi Mark,

Awesome boat....love it! Nice having all the comforts of a caravan....sure we might see you overnighting at Peel Island sometime. The Whitleys are lovely.
Very sweet looking...enjoy!
Cheers,
Sally

PS Ours isn't as grand as your baby, but we have fun in it and catch a few fish from time to time!

Hi sally
I'll keep ep my eye out for you as peel is a fav spot of ours

Also cruise crafts are great boats, I had one of the early 580 outsider's when the walk around concept was just starting in oz.

It was a fantastic boat and a design that has just got better and better

PS Ours isn't as grand as your baby, but we have fun in it and catch a few fish from time to time!
