Discover Formosa’s Centre Cabin design

NO longer do you need to choose between a family friendly boat or a fishing workhorse, as Formosa Marine’s Centre Cabin is the perfect design for both.

The Centre Cabin’s wide beam, high sides and V2 Plate Hull construction allow for a rare walk-around cabin layout. The Centre Cabin offers plenty of deck space for up to seven people who can find their own space to fish or comfortably lap up the sun during summer. The aluminium centre cabin gives covered storage, a cushioned interior, protection for the family and your gear and a heavy-duty hinged rocket launcher to easily fold down for storage.

Hardtop options are available for the Centre Cabin for extra protection. These include the new Enclosed Cabin with lockable roller door and glass windscreen, Fixed Hardtop and the popular folding Hardtop Visor. Visit the Formosa website to see the full range of smartly designed options to custom build your Centre Cabin, such as forward cabin seating, bow ladder, folding side seating, removable bait board with bait tank and removable ski pole. Formosa is also happy to discuss customisation.

The Formosa V2 Plate Hull

The V2 Hull features the strength of plate boat construction. Longitudinal stringers and underfloor lock cell frame are welded directly to the bottom sheets, creating massive strength and a solid feel underfoot when under way. Box-style side ribs act as support and house wiring and tubing to keep your deck clean and free of obstructions. The V2 Plate Hull has the ultimate deadrise for greater trim range, softer ride and quick response, providing great stability and safety. The Formosa hull maintains a true self-draining deck in Offshore models, which many other boats can’t replicate, including one of the largest freeboards per size in the industry.

Large range

Formosa offers a full range of open boats to cabin hardtop models, with sizes ranging from the 4.55m ‘Classic’ to the latest 7.4m in the heavy-duty ‘Offshore’ models with a true self-draining deck. And don’t forget the Barra Pro range for any backwater location.

Discover the 7.4m

The Centre Cabin is available as a 7.4m boat – the largest built yet by Formosa. The 740 has a sharper deadrise of 20 degrees, without compromising the optimum stability Formosa boats are known for. The 740 features the V2 Plate Hull, larger deck space, higher sides, a 300-litre fuel tank and more room for underfloor auxiliary fuel/water tanks.
