The console is positioned forward and the boat is designed to drive in a standing position. The Formosa Centre Console model has a wide forward casting deck built with a strong aluminium structure and an underdeck storage box with an aluminium drainage system to help keep the storage dry in case of rain. The Formosa Aluminium Console is 800mm wide, built with heavy-duty extrusions, driving console for flat screen electronics, drink holders and storage shelf. A Formosa designed heavy-duty folding windscreen for wind protection is included. The windscreen can be folded forward or removed to provide a 360-degree standing view and handy for a low carport. A very popular option to consider is Formosa’s heavy-duty folding T-top with aluminium hardtop roof which provides extra sun and wind protection with the ability to add clears. A Twin Seat Box is standard on all Formosa OFFSHORE models and an option on the CLASSIC models. The twin-seat has a folding backrest so you can also sit comfortably in full view of the rear and the whole cushioned seat folds forward to access a storage box underneath. To help you navigate inlets slowly, this model includes an Electric Motor Mount. A Formosa boat is known for its stability with its wide beam, yet the Quad4™ Water Ballast option is available if you need more stability at rest in rough seas. Standard features on a Centre Console include a large aluminium Bowroller, Aluminium Anchor Well with a built-in structure to mount an anchor motor, 32mm handrails, Tow-Catch™ Trailer capability, heavy-duty dive ladder, quality steering, moulded fuel tank and sender with filter, automatic bilge pump, transom deck tread, foam-filled hull, electrical harness kit, 2 cleats, forward bollard, 4 aluminium rod holders (620 and over have 6), white paint and Formosa graphics, plus more.
