400 Super Sport
Length w/ Pulpit:
The Formula 400 Super Sport is an American-built entry into the high-performance luxury sportboat market dominated in recent years by a handful of pricey European imports. Long and narrow, the 400 is built on Formulas Fas3Tech hull bottoma double-stepped deep-V designed to reduce the waters grip on the hull. The result, according to company engineers, is a faster and more stable boat that runs at near-optimal running angles without the need to constantly trim the drives. Beautifully styled, the Super Sport is a superb day boat with plenty of cockpit space and a wide-open interior. With the owners stateroom aft, a rich Ultraleather wraparound lounge forward and four overhead translucent hatches dominate the salon. On deck, the double-wide helm seat folds away for standup driving, and a walk-through windshield opens to a wide stretch of nonskid leading to the bow. Notable features include a recessed anchor storage compartment, a hinged storage locker at the transom, and good engine access. Twin 425hp gas sterndrives will achieve a top speed of close to 45 knots, while Volvo 370hp diesel I/Os top out at close to 40 knots.
