After a much-anticipated build up, we’re thrilled to have the very first Haines Hunter SF635 here at Haines Hunter HQ!
Set to shake up the fibreglass trailerboat market in the 6m plus segment, the new SF635 has a hull length of 6.35m with an overall length of 6.76m and carries the brands legendary 21-degree deep-vee via an all-new hull from the design team next door at Haines Hunter.
The Haines Hunter design team have also added a reverse sheer giving it a more modern and stylish look while still retaining the Haines Hunter heritage – meaning it not only goes great, but looks great too!
Speaking of performance, the 635 is rated from 150hp-200hp outboards. The first boat is fitted with a Yamaha 175hp four-stroke and achieves 44 knots! Add to that the 195L fuel tank, and with the awesome economy of the Yamaha four-stroke, it will give the boat an impressive range.
At 1800kg on the trailer, it’s easy to tow on its tandem axle DMW trailer.
Launching and retrieving is easy, simply roll on and roll off on the multi roller trailer, and with well positioned cleats, it’s easy to tie off to the dock while you pack the car, or manageable enough for the family to hold.
Internal layout options will allow owners to specify the widely popular back-to-back seats, which can come with a 12-volt freezer underneath, or adjustable pedestal seats being another option. Aft bin seating can be removed or pushed under the transom; there is underfloor storage as well as a live bait tank aft.
The internal finish of the floor can be finished in optional soft-touch Ultralon U-Dek panels which are easy to clean and will look as good as new for years to come, alternatively traditional clip in and removable marine-grade carpet is also still an option.
The 635 is extremely fishing-friendly, from the more ruthless ‘blood and guts brigade’ to mum, dad and the kids out for a weekend fish – the cockpit and transom is easy to wash down after a day’s action. There are plenty of rod holders, with two through-coaming stainless steel rod holders per side and two rod holders across the transom – not to mention the six holders above which comes as part of the optional fold-down bimini.
The cockpit side shelves are raised off the cockpit floor giving serious anglers more toe room, and the high gunwales will give confidence when hooked into that biggie Kingie.
When you’re not fishing, simply remove the bait board, and slot in the ski pole for water skiing or towing the kids on a wakeboard or biscuit. There’s also a high-quality drop down stainless boarding ladder in the port corner, which divers will also enjoy.
Upfront, a new look dash can handle 12” electronic displays; the latest 5” engine instruments from Yamaha with extra provision to also fit the Yamaha Helm Master EX joystick should an owner wish. Let's not forget the auto capstan for the all-important ease of anchoring!
New hardware componentry see’s fold-down cleats used for convenience and functionality, while cup holders and small item storage is throughout the boat.
With a hardtop version to follow shortly, called the SS635, this hardtop model will be ultra innovative and will feature sliding windows that will recess into the strut supports of the roof, allowing for a bigger side window opening.
While we are sure that the SF635 will be a favourite with kiwi boats, we’re also eagerly awaiting the arrival of the hardtop version, the SS635!
