The FC Boats’ team had a busy end to the year last year building some custom built fishing boats. This FC 535cc (Centre Console) is a new guide vessel built for Lucas Allen from King Tide Salt Fly, a fly fishing guide based out of Tauranga, Bay Plenty NZ.
Having previously owned an FC 430 Tiller and being happy with the overall performance and design of the FC Boat, Lucas found it an easy transition into his next vessel knowing that we had built his last boat well and to the Maritime New Zealand Survey Standards.
Lucas, having worked closely with BLA who are the New Zealand and Australia distributors for Minn Kota & Humminbird, other marine electronics and chandlery, had already tested and chosen the perfect tools for running the best fishing boat set up.
Having summed it up perfectly, Lucas has shared his great experience with this custom build and why he has chosen the tools he has to get the most out of his boat on his website HERE.
“Gets into the shallows easily, rides through harbour chop superbly and has one of the best surveyed stability reports for an aluminum boat of its class. Plus it’s considerably drier than other open boats, something I appreciate when being on the water regularly. This is a custom build and has a lot of extras added during the build process, the massive casting platform being the showpiece of the boat.” – Lucas Allen, King Tide Salt Fly
