Exterior Walk Through
The Formula 45 has a nice large extended fixed swim platform with concealed swim ladder and pop-up cleats. You can access the engine bay from the swim platform when the engine hatch is lifted. On the transom is a transom storage bin with fender racks along with retractable shore power cable, city water and TV hook up.
You enter the lower cockpit through the transom door on the starboard side. Here you will find the transom shower. On the port side in the cockpit is large L-shaped seating with storage under it.
You have the ability to install and remove the one or two cockpit tables, these can break down and convert into the cockpit sunbed. Located in the cockpit sole is the inspection hatch, that allows you to access the engine bay from the cockpit. Forward of the L-shaped seating is storage for the two cockpit tables and the filler cushions. Opposite side of the cockpit is the wet bar and access to the helm deck AC unit and the AC control panel. In this same area you will see the grill, sink, small storage and the U-Line fridge with ice maker. The air-conditioned raised bridge deck is fully enclosed by the Formula’s stylish hard top that has an electric retractable sunroof. There are molded fiberglass steps that will allow you to walk through the windshield to relax on the two sunpads on the foredeck. Running along the port side in the helm area is a port lounge seat. The Helm seat is double-wide seating two people very comfortably. At the helm there are two Volvo monitoring gauges, two Raymarine E120’s, autopilot, and depth, ICOM VHF along with the ACL remote pad for the remote bow light and a Lewmar chain counter. All of the toggle switches are in good shape; the two fuel gauges and POD angle indicator gauge are in clear working condition. There are six speakers that are recessed into the hardtop along with recessed lights and well-positioned cup holders surround the bridge deck and cockpit.
