Information On Condition

UPDATE: 10/2019 survey indicated wet stringers after the bilge was powerwashed.

The owner and his wife have had several Formulas and this is their favorite. Great care has gone into maintaining it over the years as evident by the fact that they still have the original manual "bag" with the complete boat and accessories documentation.

The vessel recently had concerns derived from a survey that indicated the stringers had moisture - no evidence of water leaking into the hull cavity. It was eventually determined that at least some of the moisture from the electronic reading could have been attributed to the power wash that was performed 10 minutes prior to the survey.
