Vision Cab

The Formosa Vision Cab features a large cabin with 180-degree viewing windows & bunks, perfect for the family and overnight stays.

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, and you gain access to the anchor well with this model through a large cabin roof hatch.

The unique VISION windows in the cabin give a 180-degree forward view creating a well-lit 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.
