Practical solution to rough seas
WHEN Bar Crushers first arrived on the boating scene, their radical hull design, unfashionable lines and crude interiors attracted little serious buyer attention.
These hardcore fishing outfits, however, deliver exceptional rough-water rides and now have one of the most instantly recognised and accepted design profiles among trailer boats.
The interiors, while refreshed, are still short on frills, but there is something compellingly practical, uncomplicated, yet atypical about Bar Crushers.
The company has shunned introducing a contemporary wraparound windscreen. Instead, it has retained the orig- inal low, full-width, singlecentre, toughened-glass panel design with short sides.
With quick-release fittings, it takes a minute to fold down the windscreen so that the boat fits under carports and garage entrances.
The overall boat and trailer height is reduced by a metre over a permanent hardtop.
The design also results in better fuel economy for longdistance towing. For offshore work, removable clear front and side fill-in panels provide ample helm protection.
Craft are available in 12 colours. Deluxe bucket-seat upgrades include mounting storage modules with handy sliding tackle trays, and helm dash fascias have been redesigned to take side-by-side fish-finder and GPS units.
