O’Sullivan’s Marine has just received a new consignment of Whaly boats - including the eagerly anticipated Whaly 455 – the first to arrive in Ireland!
Like the Whaly 435 and 500, the Whaly 455 is available in the standard version (455) and a professional version (455R). Whaly boats are incredibly robust, double-walled boats, manufactured in one piece from high-grade rotomoulded Polyethylene. The professional versions have extra strength with an added PE foam layer on the inside and are the preferred choice for professional use as workboats or for rescue operations. The new model has a big inner space and like the Whaly 500 features a drop-down bow.
"These high-quality stable boats are almost unsinkable and indestructible"
“Whaly boats are extremely popular with our customers, whether it is for recreational or professional use, these high quality, stable boats are almost unsinkable and indestructible. With the large range of optional extras, we can offer the expertise to build a boat package that is tailored to our customer’s unique requirements.”
Optional extras include: remote steering, console, windscreen, bench and cross seats, A-Frame, railings, tow bar, marine electronics plus a versatile wheelchair ramp system, developed exclusively by O’Sullivan’s Marine, for the drop-down bow.
As Afloat reported previously here, O'Sullivan's Marine based in Tralee in County Kerry delivered five Whaly 500R boats to Inland Fisheries in March 2019.

Kerry Boat-builder O'Sullivan's Marine (OSM) is bucking the trend in the depressed marine industry. The Tralee firm have a busy order book and report strong demand for its traditional lake boat marque but it also has interest in more exotic boats too for the emerging nature tourism market.
Tried and tested, the new Safari boats are ready for Lee Valley
The first of the orders processed in Tralee is the supply of four Pioner Multi boats with Motor Guide 24v Electric Outboards for the local Lee Valley Development, a new eight hectare (20 acre) eco-tourism development comprising a Nature Park. The four boats will be used for safari-style boat rides.
'We carried out water trials yesterday, all is in order and the fully fitted out boats are being delivered this week', says managing director Brian O'Sullivan.
