New release 545F to boost Haines Signature fishing lineup
Written by Signature Boats on 4th April 2018
Haines Signature Boats is excited to introduce a new fishing model to its world-class range of fibreglass trailer boats with the launch of the 545F.
The new release model is aimed at fisherman and families looking to get on the water with its superior performance and practicality, underpinned by its massive deck space.
Measuring 5.45m in length and 2.13m across the beam, the 545F gives fishos the space to play and move around freely when the bite is on thanks to its huge open floor plan and a high freeboard for added safety, particularly when it comes to family boating.
The open half cab features windows and bunk cushions with storage underneath, a split dash with walk-through windscreen for easy access to the anchor and a helm console that has room for gauges, controls and state-of-the-art electronics up to 12 inches.
Extra-wide side pockets, a live bait tank and glove box means there’s plenty of storage for fishing gear and other necessities when heading out on the water.
John Haines says the 545F is a high-performing, versatile boat with all the features you’d expect from a larger vessel.
“The 545F is essentially the “big sister” to the 525F and is inspired by some of our most popular fishing models – we’ve incorporated many elements that dedicated fishos will appreciate into a compact unit without making it feel small,” John said.
“Whether heading offshore or cruising down the waterways with the family, the 545F is a comfortable ride, demonstrating Signature’s attention to detail and design philosophy, with the added performance to cap it all off,” said John.
A 100L fuel tank, four stainless steel rod holders, transom door and a sports steering wheel are just some of the standard inclusions, with plenty of optional extras available to make it as fully customisable as you like.
A power rating of 90–150 horsepower and the added bonus of the soft and stable ride synonymous with the Signature Variable Deadrise Hull means the 545F ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance and value and to make towing and launching a breeze, it’s available on a single axle trailer.
The Haines Signature 545F will be on debut at the Rosehill Trailer Boat Show from 7-8 April at the Good Times Marine stand (no. EX02).
