Size does matter with Haines Signature’s new, wider runabout 550RF model
Haines Signature Boats has released its widest runabout yet, with the 550RF model now added to its range of award winning trailer boats.
Following the launch of the 550F fishing model earlier this year, the runabout configuration boasts the same new hull design for greater stability at rest, thanks to its 2.41m beam width.
Replacing the hugely popular 543RF model, the 8th generation 550RF offers serious fishos over 11 extra inches of space than its predecessor, giving way to an abundance of open deck area which will be appreciated by anglers alike.
As well as the extra cockpit room, the new model also features a long range 180L fuel tank, walk through front hatch, stainless steel rod holders, large side pockets, live bait tanks, bait board, 32mm stainless steel rails and a walk-through transom door, as standard.
Lovers of gadgets and electronics will also appreciate the 550RF’s new-look dash which has room for one large or multiple screens, and with plenty of optional upgrades available such as viper drum winch, Roswell Bluetooth sound systems or premium targa, the 550RF offers customers the freedom to customise the boat to suit their needs and style.
Haines Signature believes the 550RF is a true fishing weapon for those in pursuit of an A+ offshore performer.
“This boat has been designed and built for our customers who’ve asked us for a runabout that’s capable of running well offshore, but also feels at home trolling rivers and dams,” said John Haines, Chief Executive Officer of The Haines Group.
“We’ve listened, taken their feedback on board and delivered, what we believe, is a fantastic fishing boat that captures the quality and character that our brand has been known for over the last five decades,” Mr Haines said.
The 550RF has been rated with an outboard range from 115-150hp and is backed by Haines Signature’s industry-leading 10 year structural, 2 year parts warranty. Priced from $54,175 inc GST for a boat, motor, trailer package. Plus on waters and freight.
The 550RF is available to order now with first deliveries expected by January 2017. Contact your nearest Signature dealer to find out more.
