1999 Formula 312 FASTech High Performance in Goshen, New York

Stock #224471

Performance and civility may seem to have been incompatible when it comes to boats, but then one is presented with the Formula FASTech series and sees that they are not.

FASTech is an acronym for Advanced Steering, Stability, and Structural Technology, a hull developed with two primary purposes in mind: get more speed from the same horsepower and increase stability in all directions.

The deep-V hull has a vented step amidships that effectively decreases wetted surface and drag at speed, and the stability comes from hard chines that get progressively wider aft, and a small step just forward of the outdrives delivers good water flow directly to the propellers, resulting in quicker hole shots and better efficiency.

Altogether what one achieves is a great performing boat with no need for radical valve overlap, tricked out engines belching raw fuel at anything below top speed and bellicose thunder at all times, through the transom and out to rattled teeth all around.

A boat that has great handling, speed, efficiency, a smooth ride and good manners. For those of us who drove muscle cars back in the sixties the equivalent in a car would have been called a "sleeper," often driven by an older mature adult who liked to put the kids in their place from time to time.

As a specimen, this particular vessel has all one expects of a Formula, the quality fit and finish, top grade hardware, all in excellent original condition, thanks in part to life primarily in the fresh waters of New England and in remainder to the care of only three owners, the first of which an elderly couple for many years.

Just look at the photos and specs, the little extra touches, like electric assist bolters, split throttle and shift, illuminated switches, Gaffrig gauges and instruments... you know it's a Formula, if not the best made production boats, certainly among them.

Information On Condition

The photos as of 10/2020 tell the story, the boat is in better than average condition for the age, no observed gel coat defects, upholstery in excellent condition, a bit of paint loss and corrosion seen on aluminum bolster seat frames, fairly typical. The owner reports that the engines run great and everything works.
