Bar Crusher flexes its muscles at Mandurah
30 September 2013
Bar Crusher will have a strong presence at the Mandurah Boat Show with a dozen boats on display from its WA dealers.
Making its Mandurah Boat Show debut, the new Bar Crusher 615 Gen2® – with the C (cuddy), HT (hard top) and WR (walk around) versions on display – is destined to turn plenty of heads. Launched earlier this year, the next generation hull combines key features including a wider negative chine running forward, optimised wider chine aft and the distinctive Delta Flare® – delivering greater hydrodynamic lift for more efficient planing and improved fuel economy, a higher bow attitude and better spray deflection for a drier ride, as well as increased stability at rest.
Measuring 6.15m LOA with a 2.25m beam and constructed from high-tensile 4mm (bottom sides) and 3mm (top sides) commercial marine grade plate aluminium, the 615C, 615HT and 615WR are each rated to carry up to a 150hp outboard, have 140L fuel capacity and incorporate all of the functional fishing features for which Bar Crusher is renowned.
Bar Crusher’s 780HT and 670HT – both awarded the title of Australia’s Greatest Boat in Trailer Boat’s annual shoot-out – will also command a lot of attention from boat show visitors.
Bullet-proof offshore fishing machines for hardcore anglers, these Fishing Weapons each feature a toughened safety glass windscreen and all-weather hard top that allows full standing room and an unobstructed 360 degree view from the helm, while deluxe helm seats are mounted on top of heavy-duty seat boxes with convenient tackle storage. The comfortable bunk arrangement provides accommodation for overnight trips.
The hard top configuration and fold-away rear bench seat creates a huge cockpit fishing area, the functional helm station allows for installation of the latest large-screen marine electronics, while the fully-welded checkerplate deck is extremely easy to clean after a solid day on the water. Strong aluminium rod holders, livebait tank, in-floor fish storage tank, berley bucket, large-volume storage pockets, rocket launcher, baitboard, and optional deck wash and anchor winch are among a long list of fishing-related features.
Built in Australia, all Bar Crusher boats incorporate exclusive design technologies – high-tech Waveslicer® non-pounding, deep-V hull for an ultra-smooth ride; expertly-engineered Rigideck® sub-floor system for maximum hull strength; and Quickflow® water ballast technology which ensures the boat is extremely stable at rest.
