Water ballast technology

Superior stability at rest...

Bar Crusher’s exclusive design uses a deep-V hull for a superior ride and an innovative water ballast system for excellent stability at rest. We call this technology Quickflow®.

Running along the full length of the keel, there is a cavity in the bottom of the hull open at the transom. When the boat stops, this fills, becomes ballast, lowers the chines into the water and provides tremendous stability. The moment the boat moves forward, the water ballast is jettisoned from the hull allowing the boat to fly up onto the plane. Interestingly, there is no lag when accelerating, just a smooth and fast transition onto the plane.

Want to prevent water entering the hull in shallow water? Want to keep the water ballast in the boat to make it heavier in very rough conditions? No worries… enter Bar Flap™
