It is true, the Formosa X Bowrider does turn heads wherever you go. The unique hardtop design and extremely versatile layout allow the whole family to enjoy Australia’s amazing waters. The Formosa X Bowrider gives you three (3) key entertainment areas. The forward, cushioned seating and storage area is fantastic for the kids; remove the cushions and add the casting deck centre board, conveniently stowed under the passenger console, and convert to a great fishing deck for you and your mates. For a better driving position to venture offshore, the X Bowriders have a higher dash and the comfort of two (2) embroidered, high back, contoured Bolster Seats mounted on aluminium storage boxes. The seated driving position has a large dash which is covered with Formosa’s unique Wake Tower/Rocket Launcher with aluminium roof. It has three (3) grab rails, four (4) rod holders and a ski/wake pole welded to the top and is designed to fold backwards for storing the boat. The unique ‘knuckle’ design features exposed perforated Aluminium plate on the outside, and inside is perfect for housing speakers. A Tower/Launcher without the aluminium roof is available as an option and is recommended for the smaller 520 X Bowrider, making it better for folding away and storing in the smallest of garages. The large rear deck area comes standard with two side seats which fold away flush for a great open space. Due to space constraints, the 520 X Bowrider the side seats are replaced with a rear folding lounge. Standard features on a X Bowrider include a large aluminium Bowroller, 32mm handrails, Tow-Catch™ Trailer capabilities, heavy-duty dive ladder, SeaStar Hydraulic Steering, moulded fuel tank and sender with filter, automatic bilge pump, transom deck tread, foam-filled hull, electrical harness kit, 2 cleats, 2 rod holders, forward bollard, white paint and Formosa graphics, plus more. Give your X Bowrider even more functionality with the popular Full Access ‘Active Transom’ option, where you can open up the transom area to create an open deck for the ultimate water access.
