The all-new Whisper 300 by Swallow Yachts UK is arriving in Australia. Stand out from the crowd!
Forget everything you thought you knew about outboard-powered cruisers. The Whisper 300 is a game-changer.
Like us, you're probably captivated by the strikingly classic styling of the Whisper 300. If that's not enough, consider that she is lighter, quieter, stronger, 300% more efficient and more sustainable than most of her competitors.
Each vessel is hand-crafted in enclosed wood epoxy construction by UK boat builder, Swallow Yachts - renowned for their classic looking, but modern performance sailing yachts. The Whisper 300 offers the classic styling of a wooden boat, with the low maintenance equivalence of fibreglass. This produces a boat that is lighter and stronger than mass-production fibreglass methods. She is 30 feet long yet weighs just 2400kg.
So why aren't all boats built in this method? It is a labour intensive process not often suited to high-volume manufacturers. Swallow Yachts prioritises quality over quantity and has thoughtfully provided the market this high-quality alternative. You can be assured when you purchase your Whisper 300 that your boat has been painstakingly crafted, mostly by hand, by Swallow Yachts' skilled in-house boat building team. The attention to detail is breath-taking.
The Whisper 300 will appeal to owners who are conscious of minimising their environmental footprint.
The environmental credentials of the Whisper 300 not only stem from the sustainable building materials and construction methods - but also once underway. The Whisper 300 is powered by twin Yamaha Outboards of just 70hp each! This modest power-plant pushes the Whisper 300 to top speeds of 26 knots, or cruise all day at 20 knots consuming just 30 litres per hour. That's one third of the expected consumption of similar sized vessels - and of course, one third the cost. With her engines cleverly concealed beneath an engine box, this is a smooth and quiet vessel underway.
Her large open cockpit and versatile seating is fantastic for entertaining friends and family, and beautifully appointed accommodation for two is provided in a large v-berth forward, private heads, loads of storage and hanging locker. The optional galley consisting of gas cooktop, sink and front-opening fridge completes the accommodation package.
