Business as usual at Bar Crusher


PRODUCTION at Melbourne-based Bar Crusher Boats will continue under Stage 4 restrictions, introduced last week in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Victorian Government’s latest advice determines the iconic Aussie plate boat builder can continue operating inline with Restricted Activity Directions.

Bar Crusher’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located on a five-acre (22,000sqm) site; fabrication team members work in separated work areas; on-site movement is restricted; and PPE and constant sanitising is mandatory.

While Bar Crusher HQ is closed to visitors until Stage 4 restrictions end on 14 September 2020, the boat production schedule remains on track, with current orders expected to leave the factory as scheduled.

This news is a big sigh of relief for keen fishos with boats on order… including ourselves, with Fishing World’s new project boat due just in time for summer! (We’ll reveal more details about that later!)

Meantime, it’s business as usual for Bar Crusher’s national dealer network, with many dealers having already taken delivery of pre-summer stock, so now’s the time to contact them if you want to get on the water in a new Fishing Weapon before Christmas.

Bar Crusher says it has been very proactive throughout the pandemic in protecting the health and safety of staff, suppliers and customers, and remains confident the steps being taken across Victoria will help the whole country to return to “normal” soon.
