Haines Hunter 495

Haines Hunter launched the latest addition to its range – the 495 Breeze – at the recent Melbourne Boat Show.

Designed to fit mid-way between the existing 470 and 510 models, the 495 is ideal for first-time boat buyers.

With a new deck design and a raised cabin roof, this 16-foot cuddy cabin features under-bunk storage, ample side shelves, a wide cabin doorway for easy entry, a fully-moulded bowsprit and wide forward hatch for bow access when anchoring.

The transom has also been redesigned to create a small engine well with additional space utilised for livebait tanks and food/drink coolers and removable aft quarter seats.

The new interior includes extra large twin side pockets, rod holder, underfloor storage with room for an optional kill tank and long-range fuel tanks.

The 495 Breeze cuddy cabin is rated to carry 90hp, but performs well when paired with a 60hp.

Prices for a Haines Hunter 495 Breeze with 70hp start at around $27,000.
