Sneak Peek: Smick new Bar Crusher!

EARLIER this week Fisho’s Jim Harnwell and Scott Thomas, together with work experience student Matt Fieni, went for a spin in Bar Crusher’s new 730HT. The test venue was Sydney Harbour, which was sporting some decent chop and slop thanks to a recent southerly blow.

You can read all the details – and check out more great pics – in a comprehensive write-up we have planned for the February issue.

Meantime, we can report that this is one of the best boats Bar Crusher has ever produced. As Jim writes in his upcoming review, “this Aussie-built plate alloy sportfisher is a bloody cracker … if you’re after a serious offshore fishing machine that’s light to tow, rides well and easy to look after, you’d be mad not to check this rig out”.

As regular readers know, the current Fisho project boat is a Bar Crusher 670C – Jim’s spent plenty of time in Crushers over the years and reckons the new 730 “is a major step up in regards to overall sea keeping ability”.

He concludes his detailed review by saying: “I reckon the 730HT is a real weapon. It’s big and solid enough for serious offshore fishing yet isn’t overly heavy to tow or power. It cleverly combines protection from the elements with class leading deck space and standard features.”
