Fishing Weapons on show in Melbourne

1 June 2016

As our home state, there’s always a big range of Bar Crusher boats to check out at the Melbourne Boat Show… and this year is no different!

At the 2016 Melbourne Boat Show (17-20 June), we’ll have over a dozen of our Fishing Weapons on display – from the popular folding-roof cuddy cabin (C) series, centre console / walk-around (XS and WR) series, award-winning hard top (HT) series, right up to our hard top pilothouse (HTP) series.

The 2016 model range features a number of new design innovations, including Bar Crusher’s exclusive Game Lock® coaming (575 to 780 hull series), which allows you to lock yourself into a comfortable and secure position while fighting big fish. This new design also makes what was already a very spacious cockpit fishing area even bigger!

New hard top designs and dash layouts, re-designed rocket launchers, extra heavy-duty bowsprits and bow/grab rails, and fresh paint schemes are just some of the new features to be found on various models across the range – advancements which have been carefully-considered to further improve your boating and fishing experience.


Designed and built in Australia for Australian conditions, all Bar Crusher boats incorporate exclusive innovations such as our 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 now 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.


Bar Crusher boats on display at the 2016 Melbourne Boat Show include: 490C, 490WR, 535C, 535XS, 575C, 575HT, 615C, 615HT, 670C, 670HT, 730HT, 780HT and 780HTP.
