New Windscreen for
Haines Boats Classic

November 2019

With more than half a century of boat manufacturing experience, Haines Boats has a reputation for creating reliable and stylish vessels including sports boats, fishing boats and vessels perfect for cruising with the family.

Australian-built, Haines boats are known to be proven performers in all conditions, with both new and used models highly sought-after within the Australian boating community.


The Haines Boats Lifestyle

These days, Haines Boats is backed by an almost cult-like following and many boating enthusiasts are regularly on the look-out for classic models to refurbish. The “Old School Haines Boats” group on Facebook now has more than 35,000 members and it’s just one of the many hubs where lovers and owners of the boats come to share their refurbishment stories and advice. Restoring older boat models can be a fun and rewarding hobby—better still, by opting to restore your Haines Boats or other classic vessel, you’ll be sure to see its value skyrocket.

Here at ALFAB, we recently assisted with a windscreen refit for a classic Haines Hunter 163. The windscreen replacement refreshed the entire look of the boat and increased visibility from the helm, but still maintained the classic feel Haines Boats followers have come to know and love. As you can see in the before and after shots, the minor adjustment of a windscreen replacement was a simple way to rejuvenate the appearance of the classic model and also improve the functionality:
