Bar Crusher’s 585HT sets the standard of what to expect in a sub-6m hard-top fishing boat.

Bringing all-weather, hard top protection to those looking for a serious fishing machine in a compact package, the 585HT is ideal for bay, inshore and offshore fishing.

Measuring 5.85m LOA, with a 2.15m beam, and constructed from heavy duty, high-tensile 4mm (bottom sides) and 3mm (top sides) marine grade plate aluminium, it incorporates all of Bar Crusher’s exclusive features – high-tech Waveslicer® non-pounding, deep-V hull; super-strong Rigideck® sub-floor system with fully-welded checkerplate floor; and Quickflow® water ballast technology for superior stability at rest.

Built on Bar Crusher’s evolutionary Gen2™ hull design, the 585HT 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.

The 585HT’s toughened safety glass windscreen and all-weather hard top allow full standing room and an unobstructed 360 degree view from the helm. The hard top configuration and fold-away rear bench seat combine to create a huge cockpit fishing area, the Game Lock™ coaming ensures a comfortable fish-fighting position, while the helm station allows for installation of the latest large-screen marine electronics. 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, storage pockets, rocket launcher, baitboard, and optional deck wash and anchor winch are among a long list of fishing-related features.

Rated to carry a 90-115hp outboard, combined with a 110L fuel capacity (long-range tank also available), the 585HT has everything the bigger boats have, albeit in a compact and easy-to-tow package.

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.
