There are many options when looking at a great fishing boat these days, but I must admit I really like the look of the Bar Crusher range, built in Melbourne and tagged “Fishing Weapons”.
During our last trip south we visited the Bar Crusher factory, looking to expand our charter business with the purchase of another barra boat.
We then launched our first online fishing course Barra Basics, and buoyed by it’s success, have subsequently decided to move away from charters and expand the fishing courses side of the business.
Hence we didn’t go through with the purchase…
Soon after making that decision however, it became apparent we would need a bigger platform as the barra punt is completely reliant on immaculate weather to get offshore.
Enter Bar Crusher yet again.
Not only am I impressed with the finish and the ride, I really like the company philosophy. They are not trying to manufacture a massive number of cheap as chips boats. Their goal is quality, cleverness and most of all, exceptional on water performance.
Bar Crusher consider themselves a boutique boat builder, dedicated to innovative, practical designs and measure their success in customer satisfaction.
We are seriously considering adding a Bar Crusher to our stable and while visiting the Sydney Boat Show, managed to catch up with Bar Crusher Director Peter Cleland.
We chat with Peter about the brand, the boats, the business and their new Gen2 hulls in the video below.
Bar Crusher plate aluminium fishing boats come in a range of sizes and configurations for just about any application, from 4.9m to 7.8m.
