Two years in R&D


After two years in research and development at Haines Hunter’s state of the art manufacturing facility, the launch of the all new Haines Hunter 565 is about to arrive in time for the commencement of this years round of boat shows.

The 565 has been designed with input from Haines Hunter dealers and feedback from the boating public. An all too common issue for boat buyers is trying to balance fishing and family, adventure and leisure and in many cases husband and wife all in one boat.

This feedback has resulted in a family all-rounder that ticks all the boxes for family fun on the water while doubling as a well-equipped and functional fishing vessel.

A wide 2.4 metre beam provides a very roomy cockpit and excellent stability whether underway or at rest. Interior features such as a large rear seat that comfortably seats three adults and can be removed when fishing adds to the 565’s cross over appeal.

Smart and functional inclusions such as a rear door to enter & exit the boat or to land fish and a 200 litre long-range fuel tank make the 565 a highly versatile boat.

Creature comforts aren’t left out with a large spacious cabin that allows someone of 6’1” to lay out straight and the dash houses a large glove box for all your personal belongings.

A new ergonomically designed dashboard allows all todays’ modern electronics and the 565 comes standard with a bait board that can be removed when required.

To further add to the “all rounder” appeal of the 565 a ski-pole can be added as an accessory for water-skiing and inflatable ski biscuits.

At the end of the day this boat is also a highly capable offshore fishing vessel for when it’s time to chase some serious fish.

Available in a range of sporty colours and decals and in a size that can be towed by the average family car and easily fit in most family garages the new 565 is a boat that really ticks all the boxes.

The 565 can be powered with a 115hp outboard through to a 150 to suit your requirements and price point.
