HAINES Signature has released the 495F, a sub-5m fishing boat that it says ticks all the boxes for families and first-time boat buyers looking to enter the market.
The 4th generation 495F features several enhancements and modifications to popular build, delivering an extra 15cm (6 inches) of cockpit space, a re-designed dash and more storage than it’s predecessor, the 493F.
The new model is styled off the recently-released 550F and features more modern styling and cleaner lines including a re-worked bow sprit and also offers customers plenty of storage with full length cockpit side pockets with shelves, two live bait tanks in the transom and a large cockpit/cabin area with improved bow access. The revamped dash can also now cater for larger electronics, up to 9 inches in size.
However, Haines Signature says its major drawcard is its size and manoeuvrability. It can be towed with the family car or SUV on a single axle trailer and is small enough to be garaged if required.
The 495F comes with a power rating of 60–90hp and is also fully customisable with a range of options available including bimini, bait boards, stainless steel rails, transom steps and more.
