With Ross Christensen – FC Boats Founder & Managing Director
FC Boats was founded when I realised a lack of ingenuity for smaller-sized crafts available in New Zealand. There was clear need for boat packages that were practical, good quality and cost-effective. So with a bit of Kiwi ingenuity, I aspired to set a new benchmark.
I started by understanding all the attributes needed to make the best, most practicable small boat for New Zealanders: ride, stability, dryness, usable space, storage and strength. I then teamed-up with a reputable boat designer and together, with my plans and his design expertise, we built the first FC Boats prototype. We immediately fitted it out and tested in various conditions and it proved to exceed our expectations. Today, FC Boats offers over 16 exceptional boat packages and has provided thousands of enthused Kiwi fishermen with their ideal craft.
