At over 200 grand for new, save yourself a bundle.Formula Boats are well known for being some of the best looking and most comfortable cruising boats afloat. The strong racing heritage brings an exciting ride and feel to the cruisers that they build. This nearly new 09 is no exception. This is the boat that was used in the brochures. It is fully loaded and has been treated to nothing but the best of care. The Flagship Imron Black Onyx Metalic hull is gorgeous and still has warranty through 2014.One of the first things you notice is the forward sweeping arch, this is a more aestetic and functional position especially in a boat of this size. This is a real plus when boarding from along side slips and finger slips. Not to mention it just plain looks better.Formula?s designer, John Adams, takes full advantage of space and entertainment seating on this 27PC. The deep-V hull slices the waves and her streamlined exterior styling looks beautiful as you pass others on the beaches. Nice touches like stainless steel logoed cleats add a yacht like touch. Three polished Bomar hatches and 4 portlights allow plenty of light and ventilation. Since she has been in fresh water for her short life, she still looks showroom new.LayoutYou can step onto the swim platform to board or across her gunwales into the spacious entertainment area of the cockpit. L-shaped aft lounge seating has room for lots of friends and family aboard, and the helm and lounge seating has plenty of storage space below. The integrated wet bar is to port and includes a stainless steel sink with storage below for beverage bottles, ice and cups. The deck is protected by carpet and the engine compartment is sound proofed for a nice quiet entertainment area.Behind the WheelThe helm is logically laid out with everything within easy reach of the pilot and you will find no problems with visibility or glare from the helm when driving.

The canvas is in perfect shape and there is a camper top also for early and late season use.The engine compartment is accessed through an electric driven hatch in the cockpit sole and is well insulated from noise. I found that the room below was more than adequate for doing routine maintenance. Not a spec of dirt or oil to be seen in the engine space.Below DeckAccess to the cabin below is through a curved, plexi glass sliding door that works easily. It locks in place when underway. Below, you will quickly notice many wood accents and cabinetry. The look is very pleasing and gives you a feeling of being aboard a much larger boat. A Toshiba flat panel TV can be seen from the convertible lounge or can be turned so it can be seen easily from the forward V-berth.The head compartment is a very comfortable size. You can take a real shower without banging elbows on the bulkhead. The mid cabin is much larger than the normal boat of this size. The double berth is a full length or longer. There are several storage spots that are almost hidden until pointed out. No wasted space, just great design. Privacy curtains separate the aft berth when you have guests or children aboard overnight.The galley is well appointed and the great use of space provides a lot of storage. There is a Contour microwave oven, Kenyon Euro Kira electric stove, with self stowing cover and a deep stainless steel sink.PerformanceThis 27 has the upgraded 350Mag engines and will perform well enough to haul tubers or waterskiiers. The Bravo III drives make a perfect match to get a cruising speed of just over 24 MPH while topping off over 50. Handling is great with the big power and deep Vee hull. Formula hulls ride a little better and more efficiently than most of the other boats in her class.

She has performance that will thrill you and styling that will show your good taste. The deep Vee hull cuts the chop and carves corners.
