New Haines Hunter 635 model launched

The all-new Haines Hunter 635 will be available in hardtop and soft top configurations


After a 24-month development process, Haines Hunter has unveiled its new 635 model, which will be available in hardtop (SS635) and soft top (SF635) configurations. 

The all-new boat will be on display at the upcoming Auckland Boat Show from 8 to 11 October 2020. 

The 635 has a hull length of 6.35 metres with an overall length of 6.76 metres and carries the brands legendary 21-degree deep-vee via an all-new hull from the design team.  

"The six-metre range is important to us; this boat has evolved from demand and feedback from dealers and the customers," says Haines Hunter CEO Denis Kendall.   

"It’s a complete new model; it’s bigger than the 600. Comparing it to a 600, the 635 carries a little more beam on the chine aft, and it still retains the 21-degree vee, and is very similar in the entry. It will still deliver that legendary ride that we’ve been famous for while being stable at rest.  

"The SS635 in our view will be the best performing, most comfortable six-metre hardtop in the market." 

Using modern boat building techniques and the latest in materials, the hull is hand-laid resulting in superior strength, rigidity, and longevity, the manufacturer says. It also features a moulded composite structural floor that’s bonded to the hull, creating watertight chambers that deliver reserve buoyancy. 

The decks and bulkheads use a foam core sandwiched between an inner and outer skin. This technique reduces weight compared to other construction methods, with the benefit of improving fuel economy without compromising on strength and durability. 

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 forward cabin has 40mm of extra headroom compared to the 600 model, has plentiful under-seat storage as well as provision for a toilet under the vee berth.   

With a sizeable 195-litre underfloor fuel tank, the hull is rated for outboards from 150 to 200hp.
