Since I bought my Formula 242 SR1-88 with twin engines and all options,K-planes included, I have searched on Internet for such boats,but they seems to be rare.Is it anyone who knows how many was built.

Lucky owner:Janne on the West Coast of Sweden.
Hello Janne,
This is Dave from upstate New York!!! A few years back I checked out a 1988 242 SR1 from Ithaca, New York. Pretty nice rig!! Anyway, the guy needed a new Silent Thunder platform. He calls Formula,,,, They say they have not produced a 242 with twins since '87!!!! A little more research and Formula discovers one 1988 242 SR1 (242 with 350s was produced in 1988, they discontined the model in 1987). Don't know if this is accurate or not, I did not personally contact Formula, passed on the deal.

The point here is,,,, you may in fact have a very rare bird!!!!! Do not sell it until you contact Formula with your serial number and find out it's pedigree. These boats WILL become collectible someday. How long from now is anyone's guess,,,, but,,,, only so many were built.

Anyway, welcome to the board. Hows the weather in Sweden? About like like upstate New York I expect,,,,,Friggin cold!!!!!!!!!

Give us some more details of the boat's lineage and maybe we can pin-point it's history and worth. Where did you get the boat?? History??
