Work and play

Designed primarily as tough, ‘go-anywhere’ fishing boats, every Bar Crusher will also keep the family happy with its removable baitboard / ski pole.

The innovative feature allows a sturdy ski pole to be substituted for the bait-prep table, to which ropes can be attached for skiing or wakeboarding.

Bar Crusher’s Peter Cleland said the interchangeable idea stemmed from the most common boat purchasing decision being based around fishing functionality and family fun.

“Bar Crusher boats are renowned for their superior design, construction and offshore capabilities, and while fishing is the main use of our boats, many people also want a boat that’s suitable for other family activities,” Mr Cleland said.

“This simple, yet highly-engineered, removable baitboard / ski pole system achieves that balance.

“Dad and the older kids can head out fishing in the morning, while in the afternoon mum and the younger ones can jump onboard for some skiing or wakeboarding.”

Standard with every Bar Crusher package, the robust baitboard features three rod / knife / tool holders, removable polyethylene cutting board and a drain with clear tubing to ensure scales and offal are washed into the water, rather than end up all over the boat.

The ski pole is of equally solid construction and is designed for towing a skier or wakeboarder (85kg load rating).
