If you are in the market for a late model, well optioned plate alloy boat that can take the family out for the day on one weekend, and then the next, out wide fishing, then look no further as JCM has just listed this one owner, purchased new August 2019, 110 hour old Formosa 550 Classic “Plate-Hull” half cabin.
We aren’t sure how Formosa “measure” their boats, as a result, we have deliberately placed it on the sales display yard away from many 580 / 585 / 615 / 620 competitor models as its simply dwarfs them in comparison!
Volume, volume and volume, check out the beam, internal freeboard, room in the cabin and the presence this hull exudes! Allowing plenty of room for 4 anglers to fish or a family of 5 or 6 to seat comfortably.
Formosa boats are made locally here in Tingalpa and as a crows flies, some 1000m from the JCM boat yard and offer boaties a fantastic boat with numerous design features in tune with family and fishing use.
One such innovative feature found on this boat is the four-chamber water ballast system to boost stability at rest without compromising ride comfort underway. The flooded or water-ballasted keel also adds stability by reducing side-to-side movement, or rocking, as the flooding of the four hull chambers allows the boat to sit lower and deeper in the water. Ideal when at anchor having lunch or when offshore fishing.
Other great features are the drop-down transom door, fold away rear bench seat, huge underfloor storage well and removable underfloor fish kill bin as the photos showcase.
We all desire four stroke economy and max HP, this hull is powered by a 150Hp EFI Yamaha F150XB four stroke that was registered for new warranty in August 2019 and has remaining factory warranty until 31st October 2023! Annual service completed prior to Chrissy and a computer pre-sale test confirming a low 110 hours use.
Fuelled by a 150L underfloor fuel tank providing huge range, the Yammy also has fitted Ultraflex hydraulic steering and spins a stainless-steel Yamaha Reliance 3 blade prop.
The helm is wells et up with Yamaha digital engine gauges, a Lowrance Elite 9” touch could screen combo GPS/Sounder that also as a bonus includes the mapping card and links to a Total Scan / Side Scan transducer! A GME VHF radio is installed and for those that like there tunes, a portable Fusion Bluetooth sound box.
For that don’t like manually anchoring a quality, Muir drum anchor winch is fitted and very neatly installed in the bow. Overhead a large bimini provides ample shade from the sun and both front and side clears are included as pictured.

Trailered on a quality Dunbier 5.7CL Centre Line tandem axle trailer that has an ATM of 2000kg’s allowing most larger sized family cars and SUV’s the ability to tow. Like all trailers sold through JCM they are serviced/repaired/adjusted to ensure your on-road towing confidence.
We like how this trailer is fitted with a rear V cut out, making the retrieving of the boat back onto the trailer that much easier – clever design Dunbier!
