FC 430T Tiller Steer

There is a good reason why the FC 430T (Tiller) is our biggest seller and after taking a look, you’ll know why! Designed and tested extensively here in New Zealand by fishermen, the FC 430T is built to be the perfect runabout for day trips to your favourite coastal fishing and diving spots.

The FC 430T was our first ever FC model and has proven to be a fantastic performer. Built from 3mm and 4mm marine-grade aluminium, these boats are built tough. The wide hull design ensures the ultimate in ride and stability at rest. High sides, wide side decks, swivel seats and great storage add to the features you would only expect to find in a much larger boat.  Designed for inshore fishing/diving the FC 430T has constantly impressed its new owners with its great sea keeping ability, even when being pushed in rougher weather than planned. Its stability, safety and FC unique features including the FC built in live bait tank have helped anglers target and catch the fish they love, including many Marlin captures on both the East and West coasts. The FC 430T offers a great value boat, ease of use, Second to none quality, and safety that only comes from a boat “Designed for Fishermen by Fishermen”.

As with all FC Boats, this model is customisable to your fishing and boating needs.

After having been impressed by one of the original FC430 hulls, and in the market for a new inshore boat, I bit the bullet and ordered a new FC430 tiller-steer rig from Fish City, powered by a 40hp Mercury two-stroke.
