ONE of the biggest ever displays of Bar Crusher boats will be on show at next week’s Sydney International Boat Show (3-7 August).
From the entry-level 490C right up to the flagship 780HTP, Bar Crusher’s NSW dealer Blakes Marine has selected popular models from the folding-roof cuddy cabin (C) series, centre console / walk-around (XS and WR) series, hard top (HT) series, and hard top pilothouse (HTP) series, to ensure there will be a Bar Crusher boat at the show for every type of fishing – freshwater, estuary, inshore and offshore.
Along with the full range of C models (490C, 535C, 575C, 615C and 670C) show visitors will be able to check out the brand new 585HT, redesigned 615HT, impressive 670HT Exocet (special edition) and the bullet-proof 730HT. Of the open boats on display, the 535XS and 615WR deliver great fishability, while the big 780HTP is an offshore "fishing weapon".
Designed and built for Australian conditions, all Bar Crusher boats incorporate innovations such as the Waveslicer deep-V, non-pounding hull for an ultra-smooth ride, Rigideck engineered sub-floor system for maximum hull strength, and Quickflow water ballast technology for excellent stability at rest.
All models from the 490 through to the 615 are also built on Bar Crusher’s Gen2 hull. This design combines key features including a wider negative chine running forward, optimised wider chine aft and the distinctive Delta Flare – a complex V-shaped planing plank that starts wider at the transom and narrows as it runs forward. The result is greater hydrodynamic lift for more efficient planing and improved fuel economy, a higher bow attitude and better spray deflection for a drier ride.
Every Bar Crusher boat is factory-packaged on a custom-designed trailer, which ensures towing, launching and retrieving is a breeze. Self-centering and aligning perfectly every time, Bar Crusher’s innovative Bar Catch system also allows for single-handed launch and retrieve, to deliver the ultimate boating experience.
