FC 700 Hardtop
Looking for the ultimate fishing weapon? Look no further than the FC 700 Hardtop.
With its wide body cabin and raised shearline the FC 700 has the room and looks to match its blue water capabilities. With a large front FC Ballast Tank to calm the seas and the FC Underfloor Flooding Chamber, the stability/fishability at rest will impress.
We have been constantly improving the FC 700HT and now with 6mm hull, 5mm sides and 4mm cabin the ride and handling have been further enhanced. Impressive looks and practical layout in either a full lock up cabin or open hardtop will depend on your individual requirements. With full game rigging options and being able to walk and fish from the stern cage to the flat bow platform gives you a 7meter boat with so much more.
We pride ourselves on being able to customise almost every aspect of the boat to suit your needs like a lockup cabin if you wish. Start your FC journey today and let’s turn your dream into a reality.

FC HARDTOP UNIQUE FEATURES
FC EXTENDED GUNNELS
The FC Extended Gunnel combined with large down turned chines provides the ultimate in dryness for everyone on board. The smaller chop is deflected well by the chines, larger waves are quickly turned around and deflected back down towards the water.
FC DUAL POSITIVE BUOYANCY SYSTEM
The FC Dual Positive Buoyancy System provides the safety and security of a pontoon boat, without sacrificing the all-important internal fishing space. Both the port and Starboard gunnels are filled with closed cell foam, providing both buoyancy and stability if the boat was to ever be filled with water, whilst the port and staboard sealed underfloor buoyancy chambers combined with the gunnels leave all FC Boats with positive buoyancy so when you take your family out you can rest assured your FC Boat will not sink.
FC PASSIVE LIVE BAIT TANK
The FC Boats Passive Live Bait Tank gives every single FC Boat’s customer the option of live baiting whenever they want, without needing pumps, aerators or even a battery. This simple design lets water fill up to the waterline level of the boat. If more flow is needed for full days live baiting or large amounts of live baits then you can add the “Live Bait Pick up” which includes a venturi. All you have to do is open the tap and no matter what you’re doing the baits will be as good as the moment they came out of the sea.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
PERFORMING ABOVE OUR EXPECTATIONS AND HAS OPENED MANY MORE FISHING OPTIONS FOR US
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.
LOVE MY FC 430T
Fish City were very helpful with fit-out options and customising giving me the rig I wanted, with electric start, tilt-trim and extra keel-rub protection. I’ve now owned the boat for three years and have been very happy indeed with it’s performance.
FC 700HT BY FAR THE BEST BOAT I'VE OWNED
The FC 700HT is the 4th boat I have owned and is by far the best. I would recommend anyone looking to build or buy a boat, to visit this fantastic boat supplier first. I love how the boat handles in all weather conditions across the East and West Coasts. It is by far the safest boat I have travelled in across the Raglan bar.
THE GREAT ALL ROUNDER
I have had an FC 465 since 2015 and couldn’t be happier. We wanted a boat that could fish our small family, or my mates and me. It has delivered in every which way. I have used its stable platform for game fishing, bottom fishing, trout fishing, soft baiting as well as towing a ski biscuit.
