New delta flare hull design details unveiled from Bar Crusher


Plate-boat manufacturer Bar Crusher has released its Gen2 hull design.

According to Bar Crusher, the new hulls combine "a wider negative chine running forward, optimised wider chine aft and the distinctive delta flare — delivering greater hydrodynamic lift for more efficient planing and improved fuel economy, a higher bow attitude and better spray deflection for a dryer ride, as well as increased stability at rest."

The Gen2 hull has been introduced on new 615C and 615HT boat models, and according to Bar Crusher, orders have already been placed following pre-launch water tests.

Bar Crusher director Peter Cleland said one of the company’s core values was to provide its customers with boats that delivered the highest level of performance and function.

"Over 18 months of research, development and testing were invested in the Gen2 hull and we’re confident customers will appreciate the clever design and engineering that has gone into creating this unique hull," Cleland said.

"Every industry has to have a leader... and Bar Crusher’s vision is to lead the way in plate-aluminium boat design by continuing to innovate and continuing to build boats that deliver superior on-water performance.

"The Gen2 hull is the next evolution in plate-aluminium boat design and again puts Bar Crusher well ahead of all the other boats on the market," he said.

The new Bar Crusher 615C and 615HT models each measure 6.15m LOA with a 2.25m beam and are constructed from high-tensile 4mm (bottom sides) and 3mm (top sides) commercial marine-grade plate-aluminium. They are rated to 150hp and come with a 140lt fuel tank.
