Formula 290 Bowrider
The Formula 290 Bowrider is a top-tier sportboat whose quality construction and top-notch amenities rank with the best in its class. Introduced in 2011, the 290 is an extremely well-crafted boat with sleek lines, a beautiful wraparound windshield, and colorful Imron hull graphics. She rides on a deep-V hull, and a slender 9-foot beam allows the 290 to be trailered with an easy-to-obtain overwide permit. Interior highlights include wraparound cockpit seating with storage under, enclosed head compartment (port console), numerous drink holders, power double-wide helm seat with flip-up bolsters, wet bar with sink and trash bin, bow seating with pop-up armrests, in-floor ski/wakeboard storage, removable cocktail table, transom storage, docking lights, and LED courtesy lighting. An extended swim platform, windlass, and stainless steel sport arch are popular options. Note that the aft-facing sun lounge overlooking the swim platform converts to a full-length sun pad. Among several engine choices, twin 320hp MerCruiser sterndrive engines will cruise the Formula 290 at 30 knots (50+ wide open).
