Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced in 1988 as a replacement for the aging Formula 28 PC, the always-popular Formula 29 PC is basically an enlarged version of her predecessor with additional beam and weight, a little less transom deadrise, and updated styling (note the curved windshield and swept-back radar arch). Built on a solid fiberglass deep-V hull with a relatively wide beam, the interior of the 29 PC is similar to most midcabin floorplans built since the early 1990s with the forward stateroom open to the salon and a convertible dinette for sleeping a couple of kids. The galley has enough counter space for some serious galley work, and privacy curtains separate the fore and aft sleeping areas from the main cabin. Formula used quality fabrics and furnishings in the 29 PC, and while the interior decor is dated by todays standards it has held up very well indeed compared with most boats of her era. In the cockpit, the helm seat swivels to face aft, and the back seat slides into a transom recess providing access to the motors. (The deck rises hydraulically to expose a big engine compartment.) Twin MerCruiser or Volvo 330hp sterndrives cruise at 25 knots and reach 40+ knots top.
