Formosa launches V2 hulls

FORMOSA Marine has launched new Classic MK4 and SEA-ROD Deluxe V2 hulls for its proven fishing boat range.

Established in 1998 and based in Brisbane, Formosa Marine (manufacturer of the popular Classic and Tomahawk aluminium plate boat ranges) announced the release of its Classic MK4 and SEA-ROD V2 hulls for its 520, 550 and 580 models. The boats will be officially revealed at this year’s Brisbane Boat Show (RNA Showgrounds Sep 11-14).

Formosa says they key to the design changes was a focus on “stronger and sleeker”.


The manufacturer has also maintained the great performance and strength features of the current range (4mm bottoms with longitudinal stringers, marine grade plywood floors and 32mm hand rails) while some of the new enhancements include:

  • 4mm sides as standard in 520, 550 and 580 models
  • Pillar post side ribs – allows for cables and hosing to be neatly run out of view.
  • No side sheet pressing – sleeker look
  • Reinforced transom – upgrade in horsepower capacity available
  • New internal fittings

All models 430, 455, 480 and 500 will still be available as a MK3 and V1 Deluxe hull.

The new boats are now available through the Formosa dealer network.
