Faster after I got divorced from my first wife. Seriously, it ran 69/70 on GPS. Was running 24 inch "cleaver" props. Motors had been tweaked a little, making about 315 maybe 320 horsepower each. Was particularly good in rough water for a 24 ft. boat.

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??
Thank´s Dave for the information about Formula 242 SR1-88.It was nice reading!I bought the boat in Stockholm this year from a boat deler who told me that the boat came from Nice in France in the early nineties.
I can discern the French reg. nr. in the hull.When I
contact Formula they told me that the boat was dilivered to a Florida boat dealer. I should be thankful
to you if you can get more information.
The hull nr. is TNRD8285D588.
About the weather in Sweden? it´s sunny and the temperature is +2-5 degrees Celcius.
Perhaps snow untill Christmas.
My best regards.
Janne.

Janne,
Talked to Formula today. 1988 was the last year of production for the 242 SR1 (242 w/twin 350s). They made a total of four (4) that last year. So, you have one of four of the last 242 SR1s this planet will ever see!!

Pretty unique and rare bird you have there. Actually, as I think about it,,,,,,, I don't recall another boat manufacturer stuffing a couple of 350s into a 24 foot boat. Hmmmmm, maybe I'll post that and see what anyone knows about that.

Anyway, thats that

Dave
