There’s probably not too many people who know the FC 535cc Centre Console like I do. We have taken our FC 535cc Centre Console Buoysterous on some adventures…… through the hole in the rock Bay of Islands, The Poor Knight Islands, Rangitoto, Waiheke and Mayor Island on many occasions as well as many regular fishing and diving adventures in the Coromandel and Bay of Plenty. Not to mention wakeboarding and biscuiting fun on Taupo and the Rotorua lakes. In a few words, the boat is capable, roomy and about the best value for money you can get! – Stephen Harries – FC 535cc

Having owned a 6mtr plus hardtop for 11 years it was a hard choice to return back to a centre console. The original decision to transfer to a hard top was for the comfort of a then 3-year-old son. Now at 14 we’re all about fishability and function in a boat and wanted to go back to a boat that didn’t limit our launching options due to its size. Our requirements for a new centre console were, 5m range, aluminium, 4 stroke motor, easy to launch, shallow draft, dry storage area, no catch point on gunnels for netting somewhere to cook our traditional fishing meal of bacon and eggs. Having searched the market, we settled on the FC 535cc. The FC 535cc met all our needs plus some – passive live bait tank, welded rod holders, high sides, wide gunnels, full transom to name but a few. The boat is performing above our expectations and has opened many more fishing options for us. I’d recommend a FC 535cc to anyone that is looking for a functional, seaworthy vessel that offers the versatility that the FC does. – Graeme and Sam – FC 535cc

FC Boats are quality aluminium boats NZ to maximise the functionality and fishability for a keen sport fisher.
