Whitehaven Motor Yachts has announce the largest Whitehaven to date is under construction.
The custom design and built Whitehaven 8000 is based on the iconic Finito and is the third boat in the range for the owners.
The new boat will be very similar to their last Whitehaven 75, Finito, in layout and appearance. While Finito functioned so well for their purposes the main reason for the change was to house a larger tender in the tender garage, as they do a lot of boating in remote areas of the Northern Territory. The other changes are more subtle such as larger navigation screens and upgraded night vision camera. They have tweaked the joinery and changed decor colours so the new boat has its own identity.
They said that while they enjoy the process and challenge of a new build, it can be stressful at times, but it is also very rewarding.
“We have chosen to build a Whitehaven again as they are a tough well-built boat which can be customised to suit the owner’s style of boating. Whitehaven are great to deal with and do their best to meet their buyers wishes”, they commented.
As the new boat will arrive by ship on the Gold Coast via Brisbane, they will spend some time boating around the Broadwater and then possibly do a trip to Sydney, and then begin the long journey home to Darwin. Once in Darwin their journeys are unlimited, such as the Kimberley, Tiwi Islands, New Year Island, Port Essington, Wessel Islands etc etc.
