Bar Crusher’s 615XS is a hardcore fishing machine with maximum flexibility.

Nothing beats an open boat for ‘fishability’ and the 615XS – with its rear centre console, re-positional seating and forward casting deck – delivers exactly what hardcore anglers demand.

Designed for lure casting and trolling – and constructed from heavy duty, pre-stressed 4mm (bottom sides) and 4mm (top sides) marine grade plate aluminium – this ultra-tough centre console sportfishing boat is equally at home in the Top End targeting barra as it is offshore chasing tuna.

Measuring 6.15m LOA with a 2.25m beam, the 615XS’s ultra-smooth ride is the result of its high-tech Waveslicer® non-pounding, deep-V hull, while the expertly-engineered Rigideck® sub-floor system ensures maximum hull strength. The boat is extremely stable at rest, thanks to Bar Crusher’s exclusive Quickflow® water ballast technology.

The evolutionary Gen2™ hull design 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.

Check out the images of the 615XS and note the shape of the Delta Flare at the transom, as well as 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 optional Bar Flap™ system can be used to keep water out, to make the boat lighter in shallow-water applications; or to trap water in, to make the boat heavier when running in extreme rough-water situations.

Onboard, a large, fully-sealed and lockable hatch in the forward casting platform opens to reveal a cavernous storage area, which is perfect to stow camping gear out of the weather for extended trips to remote fishing destinations. The spigots in the deck allow seats to be moved around the boat, as required, or taken out altogether for maximum fishing space. (The standard set-up in the 615XS is one seat at the helm station and two seats in front.) Ample internal depth and Bar Crusher’s exclusive Game Lock™ coaming also create a comfortable fish-fighting position around the boat.

The functional centre console allows for installation of all gauges and controls, as well as offers convenient storage, 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, 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 115-150hp outboard, the 615XS’s superior performance capabilities, 130L fuel capacity (long-range tank also available) 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.

Complete with step-through transom, marlin board / swim platform and a rear boarding ladder, the 615XS also lends itself to family days on the water.

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.
