    Formula 353 FT vs 382 FT


    We are looking for a new boat, and Formula is one of our favourites.

    We would be pleased to get some input about the difference between Formula 353 Fastech and Formula 382 Fastech.

    We know the 382 FT is heavier and need more power to run fast, but we are curious about difference in handling, rough water capabilities, wot potensial with twin 600-700 HP's, cruising, etc.

    Cheeers, Heidi and Toffen

    Never been on a 353, but I really like my 382.

    Sold my 353 last fall, great all around boat. The hot rod in the formula lineup. Purchased a new 382 this spring and still trying to get it "dialed in". The fact that one of my 575's just blew up from a seized blower does not help. The ride is more solid but more seat time on my part is in order for a better overall feel of handling issues.

    Good Luck, W
