In stock - 2020 model Formosa SRT Classic 550 X Bowrider

The latest incarnation of Formosa's incredible hull design - the SRT. The ultimate allrounder, this boat can do it all - fish, ski, cruise

Its a bowrider built on an offshore ready 5.5m hull. It has big, deep sides and a raised windscreen, so its capable of offshore use as well as blasting around on the river or lake.

This hull has been developed and fine tuned for 20 years and now features some of the newest plate hull technology available. The SRT hull offers the perfect blend of stability at rest, smooth handling and most importantly, dry, confidence performance at speed in offshore conditions. The wide, flat reverse chines and semi variable 19 degree deadrise is cutting edge and offer the best ride possible in all conditions. 

This boat is fitted with Formosa's innovative Quad4 water ballast which increase at rest stability to amazing levels. It works by harnessing the weight of water in the hull to effectively balance the boat at rest. Its simple, different, but it works!

This boat is the 550 Classic hull. Its 5.70m overall with a wide 2.45m beam and features an innovative folding hard top with multiple rod holders,rails and a wake board tow point. It folds down so it will fit in you garage. The boat has multiple seats, with a massive lounge up front with a removable infill, 2 quality bucket seats with storage boxes, fold down, flush fit rear lounge and fold down side lounges. All your friends or family have a seat!

At the back there is a extra large underfloor kill tank that is removable. The transom door features a drop down step to make boarding a snap. It also folds neatly up. There is rod holders in the gunwales for the fisherman. The bait board is a superb combination of cutting board, storage and bait tank. It has rod holders at the rear and a flip up lid that covers storage for lures and tackle and the bait tank. It slides out so you can fit the heavy duty ski pole...perfect for ski biscuits!

Dual batteries, LED nav lights, LED anchor light, auto bilge pump and switch panel are included. A quality Jabsco deck wash pump and hose is also fitted, with a welded through hull pick up in the hull. The steering is Seastar premium hydraulic.
