FC465 Forward Steer

After much demand for a forward steer in the runabout range, we’ve proudly crafted and released the FC465 Forward Steer. Designed to lead New Zealand’s 15-16 foot (4.5m) boat market, this little beaut is destined to be another popular model amongst fishermen, fisherwomen and divers alike.

The FC465 Forward Steer is built to last. Designed for coastal and offshore fishing and diving trips, it’s stable, safe and dry. It’s easily towable (at 590kg on the trailer), so it won’t be any problem getting around those winding New Zealand coastal roads.

The FC465 model is perfect for those who want the freedom of reaching great fishing and diving spots, but without the hassle or expense of a maintaining a large boat. Drop by a FC boats retailer near you to have a closer look at the features this runabout has to offer. Stock is limited.

  • Finance options available. We are trade friendly.
