1987 Formula 242 LS High Performance in Pleasant Grove, Utah

Stock #159940

This 1987 Formula 242 LS looks to be in very good condition for its age. Then again, it is a Formula and they are built to last.

At the higher altitudes here in UT, this boat is running in the mid 40's. At sea level it will be above 50.

This Formula only has a little over 500 hours on the motor. There is still plenty of life left in this 242 LS.

It has a custom stereo system with speakers everywhere. A bimini top to keep you cool, ski/wakeboard tower with a rack, swim platform with ladder, comfortable cuddy cabin that can sleep two adults, two seating areas in the cuddy with storage, a sink and porta potty.

This boat can do a little bit of everything from run fast, slow cruise, ski/tube/kneeboard/wakeboard, spend the night on.

It's a great family boat that needs a new home.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by POP Yachts.
Information On Condition

This 1987 Formula 242 LS appears to be in pretty good condition inside and out. Especially for an '87 model boat.

The boat shows normal wear and tear on the outside. The cockpit of the boat is in good condition overall.

The only area that will need attention right away is the sunpad. Due to having to walk over it to get on and off the boat, the stitching has come apart and will need to be repaired at some point. The rest of the cockpit upholstery looked good.

Down below in the cabin area, everything looked to be in very good condition. The seller states that mechanically the boat is good to go.

The 1987 Formula 242 LS sits on a 1987 Trail-Rite Heavy Duty Steel Dual Axle Trailer with Surge Brakes and 2 Spares. The trailer looks to be in good condition. The seller states that mechanically it is also good to go.
