Question: How do you know when a boat is truly great?

Answer: When you forget you're on one.

If you've outgrown your ear shattering performance ride, but just can't see yourself tooling around in a 'sleeps six, floating condo'. Then Formula has something for you. Capable but not aggressive, the 280 Sun Sport is a melding of comfort and speed, with a satisfying emphasis on the speed.

By cross-breeding the best of their performance line with one of their cruisers, Formula has produced one of the best built, multi-use fun machines on the market.

Functional Layout

The cockpit of the 280 is where all the action is. Just aft of the helm station, a U-shaped settee provides comfortable seating for the whole crew. As you might expect the seating converts with a table for meals or sunset cocktails and can also be made into a super sun pad. Since no party platform would be complete without a well stocked wet bar.

The Sun Sport ensures a good time with a port side wet bar, supplying generous counter space, an alcohol stove for outdoor cooking, and a freshwater sink. The dual cabinets below the counter provide room for a refrigerator / freezer combo, as well as storage and access to battery switches and circuit breakers.

At the Controls

Like all the Formula control stations, the 280's helm is top notch. From the twin command seating with flip-up bolsters, to the VDO gauges in the dash, she is thoroughly complimented with a pair of silky smooth, Quicksilver shifter and throttle levers. The helm console also includes molded steps for foredeck access.

Stepping Below

When it comes to overnight accommodations, the cabin is small but proud. The interior features all the luxuries a couple or small family will need on weekend adventures. Flanking the companion way is a full head compartment to starboard, across from a micro galley to port.

The galley offers a microwave oven, some storage space and even less counter space, but is beautifully trimmed in cherry wood cabinetry.

Interior seating is designed around a large V-shaped lounge. The convertible space has a roomy dining format with a cherry wood table that can be quickly made into a small berth with the added cushions.

Specs

From the dock, the sleek profile of the Sun Sport is 29 feet, 6 inches long with a wave slicing beam of 8 feet 6 inches. She's powered by twin Merc power plants!

There is no doubt that the folks at Formula build a premium product and make great strides in providing real performance to the consumer. The 280 SS is a perfect example of how much room a 30-foot boat can offer, top that off with excellent performance, and you have yourself a nice cruising package.

The 28 Formula SS will go down in history as one of the most versatile boats ever made. It will run with the best of the best with its deep v hull design and has the amenities of a bigger cruiser. It will pack family and friends for a terrific day on the water.
