Imagine you and your friends and family cruising over sparkling water in this shiny red and white boat with its cool Ford Mustang hood scoop for an engine cover. You're settled on freshly upholstered bench seats, white with red accents to match the outside of the boat.

This boat comes with a cover to keep your boat clean when not in use. The Formula Junior has been stored in a carport.

Reminiscent of boats in classic movies and TV shows, like Flipper, this Formula Junior with its barrel back is one of the only boats of its kind on the water, and from the first year of production.

This boat is sold with a trailer. Own a piece of history today!

Information On Condition

This Formula Junior is very clean inside and out. Just about everything is new: electric, steering, all controls, fuel tank, temperature gauge, fuel gauge, tachometer, and oil gauge. There is no anchor light, but one could be installed. Everything works as it should according to the owner.

This 1965 boat had been in storage for many years. The seller happened to find this boat in need of repair. He has worked on the boat from 2019 when he did extensive repairs. Almost everything on this boat is new including new paint, 2006 engine, new upholstery, and new gas tank. The seller has extra red paint and could do another coat. The hood scoop/engine cover indicates a 5.0 L engine, but it is 4.3L. The cover comes from an old Mustang car.
