Haines Hunter Performance

The 485 Sport Fisher’s signature Haines Hunter Deep V hull is set at precisely 17°. For a boat this size, it’s the ideal angle to slice through chop for the smoothest possible ride. At the same time, longitudinal “strakes” provide lift and throw spray away from the boat – keeping the deck dry. This legendary Haines Hunter hull design makes a huge difference to the comfort of all on board and delivers a performance that’s nothing short of thrilling.
