Melbourne Boat Show specials on new Bar Crushers

12 May 2015

Making their Melbourne Boat Show debut, Bar Crusher’s new 490C and 490WR will turn plenty of heads – as will the competitive pricing!

Aimed squarely at entry-level boat buyers and those looking to step-up from pressed-aluminium tinnies, the 490 hull series brings Bar Crusher’s renowned quality and performance within reach of more people with its mid-$30k price tag.

Measuring 4.90m LOA, with a 2.00m beam, the 490C and 490WR are built on Bar Crusher’s industry-leading Gen2® hull design with Delta Flare®. The high-tech Waveslicer® non-pounding, deep-V hull delivers an ultra-smooth ride, the expertly-engineered Rigideck® sub-floor system creates maximum hull strength and Bar Crusher’s exclusive Quickflow® water ballast technology ensures the boats are extremely stable at rest.

Lending itself to family fishing, the 490C is a tough all-round cuddy cabin boat that will handle the punishment first-time boaters often inadvertently dish-out to their boats. Great performance, easy to tow, launch/retrieve and maintain, it’s destined to ensure people stay involved in boating too.

The walk-around centre console 490WR will prove popular among lure casters and trollers. Freshwater, estuary and inshore, it’s the baby Bar Crusher many anglers have been waiting for!

Incorporating a 60L underfloor fuel tank and rated to carry a 40-70hp outboard, dry tow weights of the 490C and 490WR are 840kg and 800kg respectively, ensuring the boats are easily towable by smaller vehicles. Each boat is also 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.


Among the range of other Bar Crusher models on display at the 2015 Melbourne Boat Show – including the popular folding-roof cuddy cabin (C) series and award-winning hard top (HT) offshore series – will be updated colour schemes, new seating arrangements/options and other innovations designed to further improve your boating and fishing experience.

Whether you’re a first-time boat buyer or have owned 10 boats and you’re looking for your next one, drop by and say g’day to the team (stand C4) and pick-up a copy of Bar Crusher’s boat buyer’s guide to assist with your research. We love boats and fishing as much as you do… and look forward to having a chat!
