Serious Signature stunner
HAINES Signature has released a well-thought-out 502RF fibreglass day-boat runabout which is suitable for serious fishing and casual family water sport activities.
This 5.25m boat gets a new 21-3 degree deep-V hull with higher sides.
As with all Signatures the craft cuts a stylish on-water profile and gets a high wrap-around windscreen for additional spray protection at the helm.
An elevated instrument panel comes with optional black carbon fibre or wood grain backing and fishers will appreciate the wide flat fascia below suits a large screen fish-finder/GPS combo or smaller independent side by side units.
The walk-through format is cellent for anchoring.
There is a sprit and rope feeds into an internal tray at the bow apex.
Storage bins are located either side of the walkway and deep side
ex- storage pockets take skis. The transom design includes an access door.
Exterior boarding steps, a threequarter size lounge that folds unobtrusively into the transom coaming and underfloor storage are optional.
A recessed top rear deck live bait well, bilge pump, navigation lights, 100-litre underfloor fuel tank, foam hull lining and pedestal mount buc- ket seats are standard. A back-toback seating variant is available for water sports. Colour coordinated upholstery is marine grade vinyl.
The 502RF is rated for 70-115hp outboards, has an approximate 1120kg towing weight and comes with a 10-year structural hull warranty. Split bow rails, hydraulic steering and a folding targa are optional.
