Default Formula 303 / 312 for sale

Hey, after exhausting all the possible boat search options I know, I was wondering if anyone on this site might have any good leads on a Formula 303 or 312? FYi, the 312 on Facebook sounds like he already has a committed buyer.

Nice! I wonder how it performs with the regular 7.4's?

And, actually, there are quite a few 303's under $30k. However, most of the 303's owners I have spoken to (or made offers too) have a lot
of stuff that needs to be addressed from leaky hull to deck joints, bad manifolds & risers, rotted Mcleod Bolsters and bad (or going bad) motors.
I mean, I understand these boats are 20 years old. I expect some stuff to be wrong.
But, when you read the ads, they either aren't very truthful or the owners are just ignorant or both. UGH.

There is a guy named Ted Jones that just posted a 310 Sutphen on Passion for Powerboats that looks really nice. He is in Stuart, FL.

The 97 on FB has a deposit on it, and I'm second in line behind that.

Have you tried all the ones on Boat Trader? Pro Team Marina has a 99 but cant get Jamie to call me back.

Yeah, that' the issue I'm having. It seems half the broker's don't return calls.

I might look into that.... I prefer the 454 or 502 mags. Only because I rode in a 454 mag boat and loved how it performed. I haven't pulled the trigger on that boat (the one in Stuart) because of all the blowby, off idle stuttering and low oil pressure on "new" motors. On top of that, try getting info from that sales guy without getting covered in BS.

Thanks! I saw that boat. I liked it, especially since they're made here in Fort Myers, but I'm trying to stay with what I know....Formula.
