Bar Crusher's evolutionary Gen2 hull design

Please find attached a media release introducing Bar Crusher's evolutionary Gen2 hull design.
Introduced on the new 615C and 615HT models, the Gen2 hull delivers greater hydrodynamic lift, a higher bow attitude and better spray deflection, as well as increased stability at rest… cementing Bar Crusher's position as an innovator in boat design and construction.
