1972 Formula 233 High Performance in Richmond, California

Stock #191459

Don Aronow founded Formula in 1962 in Miami, Florida. The original 233 deep-V hull design was built at his direction and later earned notable victories on the national offshore racing circuit. The 233 was Don Aronow's first boat under the Formula name. However, it is reported to be a Ray Hunt design.

Both Formula and Thunderbird models were then produced in North Miami.

This boat has undergone a professional restoration from the bare hull on up! All work was performed by Berkeley Marine in CA to the highest standards. She has a brand new 2013 Volvo Penta GI 300 HP motor and Volvo Penta Outdrive with duo-prop, all professionally installed with new controls and gauges. She sits on a dual axle, 4 wheel brakes aluminum trailer that has NEVER TOUCHED THE WATER.

This 233 has a custom bow thruster with joy stick controls, a new stainless steel framed windshield, new 70 gal fuel tank and fuel flow meter, and all new stainless steel hardware all around.

The vessel comes with a lifting harness that attaches to hard points on the boat for easy crane transport in and out of the water. The boat also comes with a floating dock AIRBERTH!

Information On Condition

This vessel has under gone a total refit and shows in bristol condition with better than new upgrades. There is a small amount of paint that has peeled from the outdrive. All canvas shows like new and the hull is bright and shiny with no marks or abrasions observed.
