2005 Formula 260 Bowrider
There are a few powerboat brands on the market that signify a boater has “arrived,” and Formula is on that short list. Just look at the Formula 260 Bowrider and you can understand why. The 260 was introduced to fill out the bowrider side of the Formula Sun Sport/Bowrider dayboat lineup as the first generation of true dayboats as defined by Formula.
It begins with a hand-laminated hull and Formula’s grid stringer system, which accomplishes a couple of things. First, it provides a solid skeleton for the hull. Second, due to the way it’s designed and built, the grid system also provides a positive-molded gelcoat surface in the bilge, which makes for a much neater appearance and easy cleanup. What’s more, all the cavities in the grid system are filled with foam for extra flotation and sound deadening.
The grid system is bonded to the inside of the hull with Plexus adhesive, which is so strong, dynamite is about what it takes to remove it. Formula also bonds the hull and deck with Plexus before it tops the seam with a stainless rub rail. Look closely at the screws on a Formula’s rub rail. All the slots on the Phillips screws are indexed perfectly in a north-south, east-west orientation. All of them. On every boat.
To port, the lounge can be used as an aft-facing chaise or a bench seat for two. The back rest and portside dashboard conceal a spacious head, which comes standard with a portable potty. Just behind the lounge lies the wet bar, which includes a sink, Corian countertops, a concealed trash bin and a 17.5-quart Igloo cooler. For added convenience and safety, the wet bar is fitted with a stainless grab rail and its hatches are supported with gas struts. To starboard, the 260 has a U-shape lounge that wraps from behind the helm seat to the stern bench. A standard removable dinette table can be set at two heights, one for dining and a second, lower setting that provides a base for another filler cushion.
This is an original owner boat with an eye for the details to maintain everything Formula set as above typical standards. At 375 hp with low hours in a 26 ft Formula Hull, this is “Fit and Finish” in a rocket. Don’t miss the chance at this one !
