Bar Crusher ready for action in Sydney
14 July 2016
Bar Crusher’s NSW dealer Blakes Marine will have a fleet of Fishing Weapons on display at this month’s Sydney International Boat Show (28 July to 1 August).
From the folding-roof cuddy cabin (C) series and centre console / walk-around (XS and WR) series, right through to the award-winning hard top (HT) series, all Bar Crusher boats are ready for battle – freshwater, estuary, inshore and offshore.
The 2016 model range features a number of new design innovations and upgrades; among them Bar Crusher’s exclusive Game Lock® coaming (575 to 780 hull series). The new design makes what was already a spacious cockpit fishing area even bigger, and allows you to lock yourself into a comfortable and secure position while fighting big fish.
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 other new features to be found on various models across the range.
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 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.
Located on stand 408 at the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, Blakes Marine will have the following Bar Crusher models on display: 490C, 535C, 535XS, 575C, 615C, 615WR, 615HT, 670C, 670HT and 730HT.
