Bar Crusher’s 535XS delivers exactly what hardcore anglers demand, with its rear centre console, re-positional seating and forward casting deck offering urivalled ‘fishability’.

Designed for lure casting and trolling, this sleek, purpose-built sportfishing boat is perfect for targeting everything from barra, bass and bream through to flathead, snapper and kingfish.

Measuring 5.35m LOA, with a 2.15m beam, the 535XS is constructed from heavy duty, high-tensile 4mm (bottom sides) and 3mm (top sides) marine grade plate aluminium. Its high-tech Waveslicer® non-pounding, deep-V hull delivers an ultra-smooth ride, the expertly-engineered Rigideck® sub-floor system ensures maximum hull strength and Bar Crusher’s exclusive Quickflow® water ballast technology ensures the boat is extremely stable at rest.

Built on Bar Crusher’s evolutionary Gen2™ hull design, the 535XS combines key features including a wider negative chine running forward, optimised wider chine aft and the distinctive Delta Flare™ – delivering 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.

Note the shape of the Delta Flare™ at the transom and the distinctive shape of the Quickflow® water ballast outlet. This innovation incorporates a cavity running the full length of the keel that quickly fills with water when the boat is stationary, which lowers the chines into the water for greater stability, and drains in seconds as the boat moves forward to allow it to leap effortlessly onto the plane.

Onboard, a large, fully-sealed and lockable hatch in the forward casting platform opens to reveal a cavernous storage area to keep stowed gear out of the weather, an optional bow-mount electric motor plate can be welded to the wide sidedecks, while the functional internal depth will ensure everyone feels secure when out on the water.

The well-positioned centre console allows for installation of all gauges and controls, as well as offers convenient storage, while the optional seating provides flexible configurations that can be removed altogether for maximum fishing space.

The fully-welded checkerplate deck is extremely easy to clean after a solid day on the water, which equates to more time fishing and less time cleaning.

Strong aluminium rod holders, livebait tank, in-floor fish storage tank, berley bucket, large-volume storage pockets, baitboard, and optional deck wash and anchor winch are among a long list of fishing-related features. Rod lockers can also be installed to specification.

Rated to carry a 70-100hp outboard, combined with a 90L fuel capacity, the 535XS’s superior performance capabilities and spacious centre console configuration make it ideal for serious anglers looking for maximum versatility – no matter where in Australia they’re fishing or what fish species they’re targeting.

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.

*This hull is also available in SC (Side Console) configuration.
