New features for Haines fishing favourite
With a long heritage stretching back into the early 1990's, fishing favourite the Signature 542F has had an overhaul – making it even more impressive that its forebears.
The revamped model which will now be known as the Signature 543F features softened lines, glass windscreen and larger cabin hatch to accommodate a Maxwell anchor winch.
Already a well equipped boat, the Signature 543F features a walk-around deck and revolutionary binnacle dashboard that flips open for easy servicing and now has more space to fit larger sounders and plotters.
Now featuring side boxes to accommodate epirb’s and fire extinguishers, stereo and VHF radio, The Signature 543F is a fishing boat that transforms well into a fun boat.
The cuddy cabin which comes in handy for shelter in rough weather or for a power nap has added cabin windows and the design incorporates a rear transom door for safe and easy boarding.
One thing that remains the same with the new and improved design is the vessels amazing Signature Variable Deadrise Hull™ hull -the moulded length of the built-in bowsprit is 5.53m and the beam is 2.13m.
Equipped with a 100L fuel tank, the Signature 543F has two berths and is rated for a maximum outboard weight of 240kg.
Offering a remarkable combination of stability underfoot when at rest and dynamic stability when cutting through the chop, the Signature 543F is a standout vessel in its class.
The new and improved Signature 543F will make its tour of duty at all major boat shows during 2008 and 2009.
