Bar Crusher’s hard-top pocket rocket
Bar Crusher’s brand new 610HT is built on the same hull that is considered by knowledgeable boaters as the perfect all-round boat for Australian conditions.
Measuring 6.10m LOA, 2.25m beam, and constructed from high-tensile 4mm (bottom sides) and 3mm (top sides) commercial marine grade plate aluminium, the 610HT follows the lead of every Bar Crusher model to deliver the smoothest ride of any aluminium boat on the market.
The smallest model in the award-winning Hard Top range, the 610HT features Bar Crusher’s unique WaveslicerTM non-pounding, deep-V hull, which slices through chop and performs brilliantly in a following sea, and the expertly-engineered RigideckTM sub-floor system for maximum hull strength in all conditions.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Bar Crusher without the exclusive QuickflowTM water ballast technology. A cavity that runs the full length of the keel 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 610HT’s toughened safety glass windscreen and all-weather hard top allows full standing room and an unobstructed 360 degree view from the helm, while the spacious cockpit has plenty of fishing room for all onboard.
Taking into consideration the demands of hardcore offshore anglers, Bar Crusher has also designed the dash of the 610HT to accept the larger screen marine electronics displays – be they flush- or bracket- mounted.
Rated to carry up to a 150hp outboard, the 610HT’s superior performance capabilities, 140L fuel capacity, huge cockpit fishing area, heavy-duty treadplate deck, optional anchor winch and forward bunks (with optional bunk extensions) are just a few reasons why this new Bar Crusher will join the ranks of its larger siblings with a reputation as one of the most versatile Hard Top trailerable sportsfishing boats in its class.
