Who says a centre-console can’t make a practical bay boat? The Haines Hunter Prowler series certainly shows you can.

HAINES HUNTER PROWLER SERIES

Whilst centre-consoles were once only found in our warmer northern climes, the rise in the popularity of lure casting has now bred a market for these dedicated sportfishing boats like this one right around Australia.

The Haines Hunter 525 Prowler is easily powered by a 90hp outboard motor and with that in place it competes well above its class. Power her up to its maximum 130hp and you certainly won’t be "prowling". This is a hull that will take you to sea or to estuaries, impoundments and their tributaries, and it’s a wonderful example of modern sportfishing technology.

While essentially a fishing boat for two, it still cruises comfortably and securely with five people onboard. The expansive console houses a massive storage bin with a padded lid and backrest, as well as a beautifully moulded helm fitted with modern instrumentation.
