Default Pro's and Con's on 1996 33ft Formula

Same old Story....I got a friend looking at the possibility of moving up from his 28ft Donzi (single 502) to a 1996 33ft Formula SR1 (twin 502)??

How do these measure up?? Anything to watch out for??

remind him of the current gas prices and then think of how much easier it is to feed one 502

I ran around with a guy a few years ago who had one. He liked it a lot. Formula guys, corect me if I'm wrong, but its just an old 311 with a swim platform. Those where good boats, and I've never really heard much bad about Formula.

I believe the 336 won Powerboat Magazine's "boat of the year" or whatever award they give out. It is an excellent boat and Formula is one of the absolute best boat builders out there. I have an 89' 311-SR1 and it doesn't have a single rattle. They are not the fastest boats out there due to size and weight, but they really shine in the rough stuff. Formula's quality goes without saying. Their customer support is incredible. They hold their value extremely well. Big big difference between your friends 28 Donzi and that 336.

If you take care of them, the gelcoat will look like this after 18 years! I've had three Formulas and loved them all.

The shine on that hull is coming directly off that grin.
