Are you in the market for a boat with features and accessories that would be at home in a 9m Bluewater fishing machine, but have the budget of this sort of rig less a zero? Well we have just uncovered and proudly bring to the discerning fishing market this extraordinary Formosa 550 Centre Cabin!

The rig was initially purchased in 2007 but has undergone continual improvements, refit and upgrades throughout its life to make her as she sits today at JCM. The original small bimini was serving no real use to shelter the anglers from wind and spray, so the boat was booked into Watson's Marine who make the highly regarded Vindicator plate alloy boats in Gympie and some $11,800 (receipted) on custom fabricating a hard top, extension cockpit canopy and fitting the QL electric trim tabs. Which has in simple terms, transformed the boat.

The rig has been set up for the fisherman who want to explore the estuaries and yet still have rig highly capable of the coastal offshore trip, we could just see this rig jumping the Wide Bay bar or South Passage on good day heading out for the Pearlies and Pelagics. Powered by a 384 hour old Johnson (Suzuki) 140Hp four stroke delivering exceptional performance spinning a upgraded 4 bladed stainless steel prop and a SE Sport 300 engine foil being fitted and along with offering range and reliability. The motor has been tested by our mechanics and been uploaded to our computer diagnostics and is simply a credit to the owner and for further peace of mind is backed by a BIA limited engine warranty.

In 2010 the original trailer was upgraded with this tandem axle trailer to make the trips up the highway safer and assist in carrying the additional load with increasing number of accessories that had been fitted to the hull. Mechanical over ride disc brakes are fitted and a spare wheel and naturally upon handover, our workshop will spend time and money ensuring compliance and all is in order for you from the tie down strap, condition of the discs, and wheel bearings to an R clip and correct trailer light pin been fitted - all part of the service and why buyers come t JCM to avoid the pitfalls of buying privately.

The helm is perfectly set up with all electronics and gauges and controls within an arm's reach, and finding fish and knowing where you are should be easier with the two Lowrance HDS 7 sounder and GPS atop the dash. Trimming a boat in strong beam winds is always tricky without trim tabs, this boat, yep, has been fitted with quality QL Trim tabs in 2013 and a jacking plate on the motor again aiding in the helmsman being able to tweak the ride for comfort in all conditions. Anchoring is also made a simple affair with the electric anchor winch fitted to the bow and accessing the ground tackle when in deeper waters is made easy via the walk around decks.

Features and accessories are extensive over any standard package we have seen and include:
