Excellent Formula 353 with a clean appearance thanks to its black and green factory original paint and matching interior.
Formula is a popular name within the high performance industry and offer very efficient hulls along with a very standard of high fit and finish through-out the boat. Formula have been racing for many years and perfected their hulls, but they have also build luxurious express- and cabin cruisers for over twenty years. A big manufacturer with a great reputation, excellent quality control and serial production. A respected brand in powerboats. Especially popular for families who want to go safe and fast. Also high resale value is something Formula owners benefit of..
This "mid-size" 35-foot example is a very handy size too, and require much less maintenance with its twin Mercury 496 H.O. engines than the boats in the 40 to 50 foot category.There is still the impressive growl that only two American big blocks can offer! A combined 850 horses is in your hand when advancing the throttles. It is equipped with an American custom build aluminium boat trailer in excellent condition, which make launching on a ramp a breeze with the proper tow vehicle. The FASTech series from Formula have a great structural "subframe", or more specifically a set of stringers that go in several directions to support the hull from the sea and distribute the shocks to make the boat rigid and solid. A totally rigid construction with a ong life and quiet ride are the results.
The details in the interior are excellent for this type of boats, with the comfort of a much bigger cruiser. This boat even have a diesel Webasto air heater for the days when you want to put the canvas top up, or spend a night onboard out in the islands or in a marina. It even have a vacuum head (toilet) with holding tank, but this have been used very sparingly..
It is however all about the speed and performance with powerboats, and this rocket is good for 65 knots, which is a speed perfect for attending for example poker run events or a fast cruise of 40-50 knots along the coast. The driver and co-driver can either sit or stand up, both With great visibility for safe navigation at all speeds and for a good overview when docking at the marina. Both the seat cushions and the footrests are electric up and down, and will give the unique feature of fine tuning the drives position to the driver and co-driver/navigator. The is an exclusive "Formula-only" feature that everybody who have driven a Formula apprchiate in all sea conditions.
The boat have had only one meticulous owner since new, and was supplied brand new from the factory by the official Finnish Formula dealer (which I also worked with in those days) and it has been stored dry and warm indoors most of its life. The owner have a large yacht, and the Formula have been on the water just a few weeks every year since new. Never painted with anti-fouling bottom paint and the white gelcoat lustre reflect its good life and its passionate and enthusiastic owner. The hullside and deck have painted areas where only the best marine grade coats and a patented Imron Clear coat varnish by DuPont is beng used. It is one of th original types of "Graphics" sprayed at the factory and is extremely durable and expencive.
Are you ready? Call Erik today.
