A HUGE range of Bar Crusher boats will be on display at the 2018 Sydney International Boat Show (August 2 to 6).
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.
According to the manufacturers, along with the full range of C models – 490C, 535C, 575C, 615C and 670C – show visitors will be able to check out the feature-packed 585HT, all-rounder 615HT, award-winning 670HT and the bullet-proof 730HT. The 535XS and 615WR will turn heads, they say, while the big 780HTP is the ultimate offshore Fishing Weapon.
Making its Sydney International Boat Show debut will be Bar Crusher’s brand new 615BR. Pulling triple duty as the ultimate family boat, fishing boat and sports boat, the 615BR is a dual-console bowrider design, with a walk-through windscreen providing access to a comfortable forward lounge that quickly converts to a large and functional casting platform. The fold-away rear lounge, interchangeable baitboard/skipole and other innovative features make it a truly versatile boat – whether it’s towing the kids around in a ski biscuit or waterskiing with friends on the river, casting lures for bream in an estuary or chasing snapper and kingfish on the reef.
Designed and built for Australian conditions, all Bar Crusher boats incorporate exclusive 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 industry-leading 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.
Renowned for quality construction, superior performance and maximum fishability (with a range of standard features other manufacturers charge as extras), 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.
