FC 465 Forward Steer

After much demand for a Forward Steer in the runabout range, we’ve proudly crafted the FC 465 Forward Steer. Designed to lead New Zealand’s 15-16 foot (4.5m) boat market, this boat is destined to be another popular model amongst fishermen, fisherwomen and divers alike.

The FC 465 Forward Steer, was designed for the fisherman 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 you’ve hooked up the big one, the wide chines give you a stable fishing platform to stand, play and conquer your fish.

The centre opening windscreen allows ease of anchoring, and with its FC built in 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, 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 FC 465 has proven itself a very capable and versatile craft. Our customers have caught fantastic fish including marlin on both the west and east coasts up to 190 KG’s!

The FC 465 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.

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