4.6m Barra Crabber Hire Boat
Our 4.6m barra crabber hire boats are great for getting around the creeks and rivers. They have tiller steer outboards which are very responsive to tight maneuvering. They have cushion seating and an open carpeted deck with plenty of room for loading up with crab pots.
They are also suitable for fishing the close inshore reefs in front of Dundee and often return with catches of huge jewfish.

The Polycraft 4.55 Drifter in the increasingly popular size boat. In boats around this size – 4.5 metres – it gives more useable deck area than the traditional centre console.
The middle part of the bench is the lid to a capacious locker that houses battery and safety gear. There are seats on that bench for just three, which is a likely maximum load for a fishing trip but perhaps a bit snug for any distance. Also, three adults right aft in a light boat can produce unhappy trim. There are no other official seats, but the bow platform has this auxiliary role, taking extra passengers or using them as organic ballast. The bow rail, though a bit low for actually standing on the platform, works fine for anyone sitting. The platform has the same covering as the bench and the deck: carpet. There is a pair of stowage bins below the platform, reached through large hatches; these can be used for general storage.
An endearing feature is the hull’s virtually indefinite life. Aluminium and fiberglass are often capable of outlasting the owner but they can have their problems. As boat hire operators we worked out long ago that Polycraft boats stand the test of time.
