The 535 Sport Fisher’s signature Haines Hunter Deep V hull is set at precisely 21°. It’s the ideal angle to knife through waves 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.

The SF535 is the perfect “not too big, but just big enough” size. She’s beamy enough to comfortably sit four adults or a family, but also has the length to cut through a bit of chop with ease.
