Bar Crusher’s 780HTP is a real Fishing Weapon – designed and built for long-range offshore sportfishing, with all the comforts of a ‘pocket cruiser’ to keep the entire family happy.

Whether heading out fishing miles offshore or punching into a messy sea on a long run back to the ramp, the 780HTP’s fully-enclosed pilothouse offers complete protection from the elements while the super-strong hull will eat up whatever weather is thrown its way.

Constructed from heavy duty, high-tensile 5mm (bottom sides) and 4mm (top sides) marine grade plate aluminium, the 780HT measures 7.80m LOA with a 2.45m beam. 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.

The innovative Quickflow® system 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.

The 780HTP’s massive cockpit offers everything required for offshore fishing – plenty of space to fight and handle big fish; secure toe holds and Game Lock™ coaming for a comfortable fish-fighting position; a fully-welded and sealed, self-draining checkerplate deck with scuppers; cast aluminium rod holders; good-sized baitboard; transom livebait tank; deck wash; in-floor fish storage tank; large-volume storage pockets; tackle storage; leader dispenser; and more.

The flexible layout can be changed in minutes – from a functional fishing machine to a dining layout for the evening. Either side of the entrance to the lockable pilothouse are a couple of seats that when the cushions are removed reveal a plumbed freshwater sink and a single-burner gas stove for cooking.

Stepping through the glass doors into the helm and cabin area, the helm is well set-up with a fabric-covered bolster seat that’s positioned to provide a 360-degree view through the toughened glass screen, while everything falls nicely to hand. On the port side there’s a clever seating arrangement that has two fabric-covered seats with a table in between, which is perfect for reviewing the sea surface temperatures and currents on your iPad while waiting for the fish to come on.

In the blink of an eye, the table stows behind the helm seat and the seats slide together to provide a bench seat for the trip back to port.

The fully-lined cabin is roomy and functional, with a comfortable 2.10m V-berth, LED lighting and storage shelves running the full length of the cabin. Under the centre cushions is a plumbed toilet.

Rated to carry up to a 300hp outboard, the 780HTP’s superior performance capabilities, 330L fuel capacity (extreme long-range tank also available), lockable pilothouse configuration, innovative features and creature comforts set it apart as the ultimate offshore Fishing Weapon.

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.
