1999 Formula 280 SS Cruiser in Dana Point, California

Stock #211447

When looking for a quality Express Cruiser the Forumla boats rise to the top of the list. This is due to the craftsmanship and quality of materials found in each Formula models. They all have a sleek design, versatile layouts, and solid deep-v hulls that provide a comfortable ride.

This Formula 280 SS is no exception and has all the top of the line features along with an attractive, open floorplan. There is a nice size swim platform large enough for three people to enter and exit the water. It has a walk-through transom that leads to a large deck with lots of comfortable features.

When making your way onto the boat, the first thing you notice is a nice size, mid-ship wet bar. The wet bar is complete with a sink, hot plate, cup holders, and a refrigerator. Below, there is also plenty of storage for all your snacks.

Adjacent to the wet bar is a large wrap-around seating area. The cushions are in great condition and make for the perfect area to sit around enjoying time with friends and family. There is a small storage box under one of the seats and a nice size table that can be set up in the middle. This seating area can also convert to a nice size double berth for laying out or spending the night. Also, in the aft area, there is plenty of room to do some fishing or enjoying water sports with the kids.

The helm is nicely laid out with all the electronics, switches, and gauges you need to navigate a safe weekend trip to your favorite destination. The captain's seat has a companion place for your favorite "number 1" to keep you company while underway. On the port side is comfortable bench seating for two. The whole deck layout of this boat is just perfect for 10 of your family to hang out and enjoy the fellowship.

The cabin is also in really great condition. All the cabinet doors, carpet, ceiling, and cushions are without blemish and have been well taken care of. There is a hanging closet for storage that also houses the stereo and audio amplifiers. The galley has a typical size microwave, with cup holders, countertop and storage. The V-Berth is large enough for 6 people to sit around the table for lunch and converts to a good size double berth for sleeping to adults.

If the great layout, the open space, the comfortable cabin is not enough, maybe a peak of the meticulously maintained twin Mercruiser 350 Mag engines will do the trick. Both engines have been well maintained for maximum power and reliability. Both run very well and provide a cruising speed of 40mph with a max speed of 60mph depending upon the cargo. The owner has updated almost all the components found in the engine compartment and he can provide you with a detailed list if you want.

This boat does not show its age and would be a fantastic addition to any family and will please the most hardcore boat fanatic. This boat is priced to sell. So make an appointment to see it today.

The seats were in great condition. One cushion has a small rip. (see listing photos)
