Bar Crusher’s 490C is aimed squarely at entry-level boat buyers and those looking to step-up from pressed aluminium tinnies…
A STEP-UP FROM PRESSED TINNIES
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 on-water performance, easy to tow, launch/retrieve and maintain, it’s a small boat but certainly no toy!
Packing in key design elements and using the same construction techniques of larger Bar Crusher boats, the 490C is built on the evolutionary Gen2® hull with Delta Flare®. The result: greater hydrodynamic lift for efficient planing and excellent fuel economy, a higher bow attitude and better spray deflection for a drier ride, as well as increased stability at rest.
There’s not much the 490C doesn’t have, although there’s still room to add some extras. Upgrading from the removable baitboard to the all-in-on baitboard/livebait tank is popular among keen anglers, as is an electric anchor winch for those who drop the pick to fish.
GOOD THINGS, SMALL PACKAGES
Tough, premium-quality Bar Crusher plate aluminium boat construction, performance beyond its size, and factory-packaged on a custom-designed trailer with Bar Catch®, the 490C is fitted as standard with a long list of functional features (items other manufacturers charge as extras)…
