Atlantic salmon the hard way

Atlantic salmon the hard way

Scott McDonald

This industry provides a spin off to all anglers in the form of regular escapes of salmon from the farms.

‘One-off’ Bar Crusher turning heads

Bar Crusher Boats recently teamed up with Navico Australia’s Dave Silva to develop the first 560XS Tournament model. 

Designed around Dave’s passion for tournament barra fishing in the Top End, this custom model has taken Bar Crusher’s popular ‘crossover’ concept to another level. 

Built on the heavy-duty plate aluminium 6.10m (LOA) 560 hull, Bar Crusher’s high-tech Waveslicer™ non-pounding, deep-V hull design is perfect for handling the often messy conditions, created through large tidal movement and wind, encountered along the Top End’s river systems and open coastline. The boat’s expertly-engineered Rigideck™ sub-floor system ensures maximum hull strength, while Bar Crusher's exclusive Quickflow™ water ballast technology turns the boat into an amazingly stable casting platform at rest.
