Formula 353 FasTech (2012-) Test Video

Formula has chosen to make a boat that goes fast enough, but still have the fine coachwork and reliability that has made Formula famous of its express cruiser line. The 353 FasTech is not a boat built in a garage by wild-eyed gearheads. Rather, it is a production boat built in the same factory with the same craftsmen as the rest of the Formulas. Further, the 353 has lots of comfort and amenities -- and a warranty as well, something unusual in go-fast boats. Her engines come from Mercury Racing's skunk works in Fond du Lac and horsepower options range up to 1200-hp. So how did she perform with a pair of 525s?
