Deck and Hull Equipment

FORMULA'S UNIQUE SUSPENDED STRINGER SYSTEM 

  • Each Sun Sport hull is reinforced with a custom-engineered matrix constructed of Perma Panel, which is not susceptible to decay-causing fungi.
  • Cut prerisdy by C-N-C router, the matrix is encapsulated in resin and laminated to the hull while suspended on jigs. This eliminates contact distortion and creates a level base for exact component fit.
  • Hull cavities are filled with structural foam, increasing integral strength and producing a quiet, solid ride

ELIMINATING WOOD IN THE COCKPIT PROVIDES LASTING DURABILITY.
StarLite® XL polyurethane marine paneling is used instead of wood throughout the cockpit.
Seat cores are either rotocast plastic or formed fiberglass, creating a virtually indestructible framework.
Eliminating wood structure extends the cockpit's like-new appearance into the future.

 

SPECIALIZED FOAM MAKES THE DIFFERENCE IN DRY COCKPIT SEATING.
Advanced Dri-Fast® polyurethane foam is used throughout the Formula cockpit.
Instead of being trapped, water freely drains through the foam, eliminating soggy seats.

THERES PLENTY OF ROOM FOR YOUR GEAR IN A FORMULA SS COCKPIT.
Smooth fiberglass storage areas, free of exposed wood or carpet, protect your gear from unwanted moisture.
Special compartments for lines, fenders and PFDs keep the cockpit clutter free.

  • Includes compartamentalized storage for 4 dive tanks stored upright under bench seat.

FORMULAS UNIQUE IMRON® PROCESS RESULTS IN A VIBRANT FINISH THAT FAR SURPASSES ALL OTHERS
Executed with DuPont Imron, a durable all-weather urethane, Formula graphics excel in design, quality and lasting beauty.
Formula offers the widest range of color selections and designs to personalize your powerboat.
Complicated preparation, patterning and masking procedures are involved in each different color application.
Imron-finished graphics never chalk or fade as compared to colored gelcoat; Imron retains its original, like-new brilliance and glossy surface year after year.

2007 Formula 280 Bowrider

The emphasis on the 280 Bowrider is its livability, making it perfect to enjoy an entire day on the water. Measuring 31 feet (including extended swim platform) with a 9'2" beam, the 280's sleek profile reflects Formula's established experience and design qualities.  She can easily accomadate 10 adults.  There is a table in the cockpit which converts to launging area with included cushions.  With the upgraded charplotter, the engine data including a digital fuel tank based on fuel burn provides accurate and valuable information.  I bought her from Canadia with 140 hours on the engines.  Since then, she spends most of her time in a climate controlled garage when not being used.  I did redesign the radar arch and had the OEM make the needed modifications to have the tower power fold for low bridges.  We use the boat on Lake Cumberland, occassionaly Morse resivoir and once a week each year we take her to the Florida Keys.  She has been very wll maintained.  I thought I would never sell her.  Fortunatly, I am upgrading to a 50 ft + motor yacht and that is why I am seeling.  

The trailer is being sold seperate and is not included in the price.  

The trailer is a custom built trailer by Loadmaster trailers in Port Clinton Ohio.  I took delivery in January 2019.  It is designed very well with a (3) 6000 pound axles and has electric over hydraulic braking.  GVWR is 16,002 pounds.  Boat fully loaded is estimated around 11,000 pounds.  My asking price for the trailer is $8,500 (over $12,500 invested).
