If you’re ready to turn off the mobile phone, grab the family and enjoy some down time away from the hustle and bustle on land, this Whittley 2380 Weekender is your escape vehicle or better known as “keels on wheels” found exclusively at John Crawford Marine – Qld’s Used Boat Specialists since 1964.
John Crawford Marine proudly offers the discerning boat buyer looking for one of the best trailerable family weekenders, this value packed and beautifully presented Whittley 2380 offering genuine value and exceptional buying priced under $70K considering it was purchased in June 2012.
As the photos depict the Whittley brand know how to put together a boat that allows the family to spread out and relax, be comfortable and enjoy the water. A galley with a small fridge, sink and stove will bring the “Jamie” out in you and knock up a quick lunch and you can comfortably lounge around the cockpit or on seat with feet dangling in the briny off the swim platform. After a swim, a quick wash down via the transom fitted freshwater shower will have you feeling refreshed and ready for the sunset nibbles and a glass of bubbles.
The cabin is light and airy, fitted with comfortable passed cushions and bunks and we love that a toilet is aboard! No one likes manually pulling up the anchor, luckily the boat is fitted with a quality Lewmar electric anchor winch. At the helm, steering the is light via the power assisted steering system, good visibility all round thanks to the clears and large windscreen. And the dash – beautifully set up with a Garmin combo GPS/Sounder, communications radio and for those that enjoy the music aboard, a Fusion stereo system is fitted.
Powered by a 190Hp V6 4.3L TKS model, Mercruiser 4 stroke sterndrive linked to an Alpha One leg that pushes the boat effortlessly cruising along at 22 -24 knots all day long! As the photos depict the engine bay is very well presented and the engine has had its annual service completed in June 2018. All books and manuals come with the package and for new boaters; John Crawford Marine also offers an on-water orientation and handover at time of collection.
The boat is trailered on a Mackay Multi Link tandem trailer, manufactured new in August 2010 and are regarded as one of the best Australian made trailers on the market. The braking system is via a Hydrastar electrically activated hydraulic system braking on all 4 wheels. The package is rated to 2600Kg and naturally a suitable tow vehicle will be required to legally tow. The trailer is designed so that the rig can be easily driven on and off the trailer. The trailer has had new braking discs / new wheel bearings and a new Hydrastar brake actuator fitted in June 2018 to ensure your on-road safety and compliance.
The previous owners proudly stated that this was the best time that the family had sitting over at Horseshoe Bay watching the sun go down after a day of swimming and exploring. Throughout the boat, storage abounds and included in the package is a compliment of quality accessories as outlined below:
If you are in the market for a quality and well-appointed trailerable family package that offers great value, then make a time to inspect this Whittley 2380 backed by JCM with buyers confidence as outlined further below, tow away under $70K …
When it comes to used boats, it’s likely your watercraft is going to be your second or third largest investment behind your house and car. This is the reason John Crawford Marine goes to extensive lengths to ensure every boat that rolls out of our Brisbane boat yard goes through a range of comprehensive checks and maintenance audits before it is even listed as a used boat for sale.
This means when you walk into our Brisbane boat dealership, you know every boat is quality assured, meaning you can get on the water quicker.
Private boat sales are great, but what are you actually buying?

Unless you know what to look for – hidden mechanical problems, leaks, incorrect or inferior screw & bolts, etc for fixes – there’s a possibility your dream boat will quickly turn into a money pit.
