RC 480

Family Fishing

Family Fishing

The RC 480 is the largest of the Senator small boat range. It has all the advantages of the RC 450 but with a lot more space where it counts, in the deck!

Add to this the higher sides and perspex windscreens and you get an awesome family fishing platform that is easy to tow, easy to launch and a breeze to store.

Safety, as always, is to the forefront with separate pressure tested pontoon and underfloor chambers making this little package virtually unsinkable.

This is possibly the best small family boat in the Senator line-up.

The Senator

At Senator we measure the true length of the boat, we don’t include the overhangs to make our boats seem longer than they are = more boat for your buck.
