2023 FC Boats 465R
THE PERFECT SMALL FISHING BOAT.
The FC 465 Forward Steer, was designed for someone that wants a smaller easily handled craft with canopy protection from the harsh NZ elements.
With ergonomically designed twin reversible helm seats means you can drive or fish from a relaxed seated position. Once youve hooked up the big one, the wide Chines gives you a stable fishing platform to stand, play, and conquer your fish.
The center opening windscreen allows ease of anchoring, and with its FC Passive Live Bait Tank, this package allows many an exciting day on the water with the stability and handling, and safety of a much larger craft.
The FC 465 Forward Steer is built to last. Designed for coastal and offshore fishing and diving trips, its stable, safe, and dry. Its easily towable (at 590kg on the trailer), so it wont be any problem getting around those winding New Zealand coastal roads. The FC 465 has proven itself a very capable and versatile craft.
All Black Dwayne Sweeney a great ambassador of this boat had caught numerous marlin by himself on the FC 465R.
The FC 465 model is perfect for those who want the freedom of reaching great fishing and diving spots without the hassle or expense of maintaining a large boat.

It is the best boat we have had and is such a perfect fit over in Fiji, such an eye grabber that can handle all types of weather which can change in a moment. We use it for day cruising, sight-seeing, island hoping, and game fishing and it fits every purpose!

I mainly lure fish out of Tauranga and you need a good stable boat down here as most of the time I’m standing and actively fishing. It’s small, stealthy and with the Minnkota it’s great for hunting in the harbour shallows. I’m also more than happy sitting many kilometres off the coast. It’s a great looking little boat and always gets plenty of attention and compliments. I’ve been fishing out of small alloy tinnys most of my life, but these are nothing like the tinnys of old. Would and do totally recommend them.

ADAM TAYLOR – CHASING TAIL
I bought a FC 430cc Centre Console a year ago and loved it. I saltwater fish as well as saltwater fly fish and the boat ticks all the boxes! I upgraded to the FC 535cc Christmas just gone so I could get out a bit further for possibly bigger game fish. The boat is perfect if I was to ever change I would then go to the FC 560cc, awesome boats!!!

We love our FC 500ss side console as it has so much fishing space, we have had 6 fishing from it. I’m not sure if there is another 5m boat around that could cater for that.
Another asset we really like about our boat is the high sides as this has made it a lot safer for my kids (4.5yrs and 1.5yrs old) to be on, the sides are at chest height which all but eliminates any chance of them going over.
The hull design makes it extremely stable at rest and we have had it in some sloppy conditions out from Raglan and it has never been a problem. We look forward to a lot more great times in our “big” little boat.

BRUCE HORROX – ON THE JOB
Having purchased the FC 560 Cuddy Cabin, with a 115hp Mercury, in 2015, we have found the boat to be an amazing amount of pleasure. This being our first boat, it has exceeded our expectations from the day of purchase. It is easy to tow, easy to launch and easy to operate. The boat rides well and you feel comfortable in choppy conditions with the added ability of being able to retain water in the hull to give the extra weight required to help stabilize the boat in the water. The FC gives us plenty of room to comfortably be able to fish four from the cockpit, so the family gets to enjoy the pleasure as well. The only downside is not being able to get out on the water more often.
