I dont know whether you saw a similar like this:

A 36 is for sale which is similar to a Round Britain participant that became second.

Is it more of a open bow/ small "performance boat". In the early-mid 90's Thunderbird (Formula) made a brand called Falcon as a lower level boat. Never in one but I understand they weren't bad boats even though they only last a few years.

my friend had a 20ft falcon about 10 years ago when they got it new. For a late 90's it was a pretty nice boat from what I can remember, descent ski boat, but I cannot comment on the rough water capabilities as we were up on small lakes in Muskoka Ont. The boat ran mid 50's with a 350merc/alpha

It's a pop of one of our Shadows..... There also was another Shadow pop called a "Raptor" as I recall. Maybe the Falcon popped the Raptor.......

A friend of mine had a late 90s Falcon by Thunderbird (Formula). It was a sporty bow rider, and a great looking and running boat.

It is funny how certain model names have been used, over and over, by different companies.
