Haines Signature reinvents the entry-level boat market with 495F

HAINES Signature is excited to announce the release of the 495F, a sub-5m fishing boat that ticks all the boxes for families and first-time boat buyers looking to enter the market.

The fourth generation 495F showcases clever enhancements and modifications to an already legendary build, to deliver an extra 15cm of cockpit space, a re-designed dash and more storage than it’s hugely popular 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, its major drawcard is its size and manoeuvrability – it can easily be towed with the family car or SUV on a single axle trailer and is small enough to be garaged if required – characteristics which proved popular with the previous model, known for being one of the largest selling boats in Australian boating history.

According to John Haines of The Haines Group, the 495F is a great entry-level fishing boat that’s versatile enough to convert into a fishing or sports boat with ease.

“This section of the market has been great for Haines Signature and our customers, who have commanded a boat that’s small enough to easily store and tow while still possessing all the features and capabilities of other Signature boats,” said John.

“The 495F, can easily be launched by one person and is perfect for day trips exploring water ways, but can still pull the kids on a tube or comfortably handle the rough for when fishing trips offshore come begging,” John said.

The 495F boasts the same soft ride and stability at rest as its big brothers, thanks to its Signature Variable Deadrise Hull, that’s synonymous with Haines Signature Boats.

It 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 much more.
