Vision Cab

The Formosa Vision Cab features 180-degree cabin viewing windows, extra long bunk beds and Formosa’s heavy-duty windscreen with grab rails.

There is no fun in being stuck in an uninviting dark cabin and competing with the family for deck space.

The VISION Cab was designed to give the whole family an open-plan cabin with plenty of room to move. Formosa’s wide hull means you get a large light-filled cabin with longer cushioned bunks and great storage areas, plus a stable and spacious deck out the back for all. Enjoy an overnight stay at your favourite spot with this model. The driver and passenger sit comfortably with individual dash storage behind Formosa’s heavy-duty Offshore Windscreen while underway, and you gain access to the anchor well with this model through a large cabin roof hatch.

The unique VISION window in the cabin gives a 180-degree forward view creating a light and inviting rest or play area for you or the little ones, and it’s a great feature for keeping an eye out during the night, especially if the fish are jumping.


  • Wide spacious forward cabin which is perfect for an overnight stay for the family.
  • Open-plan cabin design which creates easy access in and out and great family interaction.
  • VISION window for a forward 180-degree view for a well-lit cabin interior.
  • Longer 1.8m cushioned bunks with cushioned footwell centreboard to extend your sleeping area.*
  • Large cabin shelves and carpeted cabin walls for extra comfort.
  • Purpose-built toilet bay behind the driver’s console for a private portable toilet area.
  • Heavy-duty, toughened glass Windscreen with handrails – designed and built by Formosa Marine.
  • Large driver console to accommodate the latest flat screen electronics, with storage locker behind to safely house all wiring.
  • Passenger side console with plenty of personal storage at hand and long heavy-duty cabin handrail.
  • Large roof hatch for easy anchor access.

* 525 and 565 Vision Cab – short cabin

If the long cabin bunks and toilet bay is not required, the 525 and 565 Vision Cab have a shorter cabin to allow for more fishing deck space, 1.35m long cushioned bunks (normally 1.8m) with provision for a portable toilet in the footwell instead of behind the driver’s console. With the shorter cabin, bunk extensions are an option.

Hardtops Options:

  • Folding Rocket Launcher with Aluminium Hardtop Visor and awning rails
  • Wake Tower/Rocket Launcher with Aluminium Hardtop Visor and awning rails.
