Formula 290 Bowrider (2010-) Test Video

Several years ago we tested the Formula 280 and were impressed with the way Formula finished what was at the time, one of industry’s largest bowriders. But time marches on, and so does Formula’s design department headed up by veteran John Adams. The new Formula 290 BR is a larger, much improved version of the old 280, which was pretty impressive in her day. The new boat weighs about 1600 lbs (727.27 kgs.) more, has a 22-degree deadrise instead of 21, and draws four inches more. But the big news is the layout and detail work is far richer with exquisite finish.
