The list of features is incredible:
Hull & Deck
The 43-foot LOA, 12-foot beam fiberglass hull is made with a molded structural grid with stainless-steel hardware and adhesive to make the critical hull-to-deck joint. For a light and airy feel belowdecks, the topsides boast two polished port lights and an oversized port lights on each side. Formula’s “FAS3TECH” multi-step design gives us a deep Vee up forward that slices right through chop and slop with 22-degrees of deadrise at the transom that gives a nimble speed once up on a step. This boat has the optional SeaKeeper gyro stabilizer to eliminate roll while under way or anchored.
On the weather deck we find a flush cockpit with a center-console helm and three-up command couch beneath a hard top that comes complete with a motorized skylight and shade panels if you need to block some of the sun. The couch itself comes with a convertible feature that allows you to shift between a proper bucket chair and a padded leaning post, and not only that, but the air-conditioning can be routed to blow out of a louver in the backrest for a little open-air climate control.
A U-shaped aft lounge and foredeck dining station supplement the multiple sunning beds with collapsing tables and padded inserts that turn the lounges into large chunks of tanning space. There’s a wet bar complete with Yeti cooler and tucked-away blender tends to the beverage needs of the weather deck and cockpit guests, and if you’re into showing off your culinary chops, you’ll have an electric grill to cook and the Corian solid-surface countertop will stand up to the weather. Because it’s non-porous it won’t harbor bacteria thus making it an ideal food-prep surface.
The open bow has a number of removable table and cushion sections so you can mix and match to meet your seating needs, and from there you can access a shipwide stereo control and pump up the volume or tune it down as you like. If you are into throwing parties on your yacht — and who isn’t? — you’ll be happy to learn that the hull has colored LEDs that put on a light show synchronized to your music for a cool visual effect in the surrounding water.
The belowdeck areas are kept light and airy through ample interior lighting, portlights that let in sunlight with light-colored surfaces, and upholstery that won’t absorb all those lumens and make it feel like a cave down there. Once down the three wooden steps from the cockpit to the main salon we find a generous 6-foot 6-inches of headroom between the woodgrain-finish flooring and the padded overhead.
The Corian treatment continues through the galley into the head, and the food-prep area boasts a sink, coffee maker, microwave and electric stove. Blue cabinet LEDs shed some light inside the dark-colored boxes to help your eyes penetrate the gloom within, and they match the mood lighting spread throughout the lower decks.
A stainless, pullout refrigerator keeps your food chilled while a built-in winerack keeps your bottles safe while underway. Rockford Fosgate supplies the stereo equipment for the whole vessel with remote controls spread about so everybody gets to have input on the output. An AM/FM receiver joins the USB ports and Bluetooth device so there’s no shortage of musical options.
The Super Sport Crossover features a large, queen-size stateroom aft and a forward lounge that will collapse into a bed for two, so you can use this as a getaway platform for a couple of couples, or host probably at least a dozen guests for an anchor-down party. The small niceties and creature comforts are innumerable.
Rigging & Propulsion This boat is equipped with the optional 4 Mercury Racing 400R engines, which will provide a 42 mph cruise and 64 mph top speed.
At the helm we have a tilting, leather-bound steering wheel with three, 16-inch Raymarine screens that provide for all your bottom-finder and chart-plotter needs. Vents in the dash join the louvers in the command couch to move plenty of cooling air over the cockpit crew, but I think my favorite part is the push-button control that moves the helm footboards up and down so no matter how tall (or short) you are, you can find a position that will give you the view and control access you need.
Mercury’s VesselView 702 and Launchport touch screen put all shipboard systems at the helmsman’s fingertips, should your travels find you out at night there is a Raymarine FLIR system installed. You’ve got joystick control at the helm and at a rear steering station plus the optional bow thruster for ease of maneuvering in narrow canals or fairways
