Bar Crusher Boats leads the industry in design excellence and quality to produce the most advanced plate aluminium boats on the market.
Incorporating exclusive innovations such as Quickflow® water ballast technology; Rigideck® engineered sub-floor system; Waveslicer® smooth non-pounding hull; and the evolutionary Gen2™ hull design with Delta Flare™, Bar Crusher boats are renowned for their superior performance.
Professionally designed and manufactured from the highest-quality materials – in the company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Melbourne, Australia – the experienced and devoted team’s attention to detail is evident in all Bar Crusher boats. Every feature of every boat has been carefully considered for its performance, practicality, versatility and, importantly, durability.
Bar Crusher boats are real ‘plate’ boats, using cutting-edge technology in their design and construction. They’re not pressed and ‘tacked’ together like cheaper mass-produced aluminium boats.
The best definition of a ‘plate boat’ is a boat that’s built using a properly constructed sub-floor frame; heavy-gauge, high-tensile aluminium cut from flat plate and has a welded-in aluminium floor.
Bar Crusher’s Rigideck™ system is the toughest hull building system in the world. Rigideck uses full-depth and full-length longitudinal frames so everything is boxed and triangulated. For even greater strength, Bar Crusher uses cross frames between the longitudinal frames to tie the whole sub-floor together.
If you think of an aeroplane wing or aerospace honeycomb structure, you will be able to visualise the Rigideck system. The sub-floor framing is braced in all directions to cope with tremendous stresses. (The reason every boat builder doesn’t use this system is because it’s more expensive, harder to do and requires better welding skills.)
