Side Consoles

Formosa’s Side Console has a high and wide forward casting deck designed with storage that can fit a 70L icebox, keeping the deck space clear for the ultimate fishing boat.

A side console gives you an open fishing platform with full access to the portside and a large open area for storing equipment. The low console also provides less wind resistance, increases your viewing capacity on the water and is easier to store if your garage height is at a premium. The side console is ideal for navigating inlets slowly, to help with this, Formosa provides an Electric Motor Mount as a standard feature on this model. The forward casting deck has been designed high allowing storage for a 70L icebox or water tank underdeck, to help keep your fishing area clear of obstructions. The casting deck is built with a strong aluminium structure and a drainage system around the hatch to keep the storage bay dry in case of rain. With strength and practicality in mind, Formosa has designed an aluminium console to fit flat screen electronics, a curved windscreen, large storage shelf and heavy-duty grab rails for all your aftermarket accessories. The Driver Sliding Seat is an innovative design, allowing the driver to reposition the seat, sliding along the side pocket, to allow more deck space while fishing off the back. A heavy-duty tackle box is fitting under the seat. With this model, you also get a Pedestal Pole Seat for the passenger and extra seat positions for versatility. Standard on a Side Console are two (2) embroidered folding seats with slide, battery bay, a large aluminium bowroller, 32mm handrails, Tow-Catch™ Trailer capabilities, 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, 4 aluminium rod holders (635 and 675 have 6), forward bollard, white painted sides and interior and Formosa graphics, plus more. Formosa boats are known for their stability, yet the Quad4™ Water Ballast option is available on each boat if more stability at rest is needed in rough seas. Popular options include a Low-profile Bait Board and Transom Live Well. Download Full Feature List below.
