FX420 Boat Bivvy | Fox International
RRP: £1999.99 | foxint.com
Fishing large European rivers and lakes can be a challenging prospect, and most require a boat. This is where the new FX420 Boat Bivvy comes in, which integrates a boat and a bivvy together, so you don’t even have to clear a swim to fish from. The boat is super sturdy and at 4.2m long it is more than big enough to accommodate an angler and his tackle. It has fully reinforced thick walls and a fully black aluminium floor. There is an adjustable rail seat plus a set of oars included in the price. To the rear, Fox have added a reinforced transom for an outboard and fish finder to be mounted on, with a maximum outboard output of 30HP.
The bivvy was made specifically for the FX420 boat, using Fox’s favoured 20,000mm hydrostatic head, rip-stop Camo Ventec material. It comes supplied with a rigid aluminium frame, to keep the elements at bay and internal mesh pockets for storage of important items. The rear entrance features a full-length zip, so the user can swap between a fully solid door and a mozzie mesh panel. Standing at 1.54m high, the bivvy will take any length bedchair running along its length, or, if you prefer, a compact bed such as a Flatliter Compact will fit widthways.
Although this Boat Bivvy isn’t cheap, it serves a great purpose for those who want to tackle the wild waters of Europe. It is the complete package!
