Exterior

Formula 260 Bowrider

The 260 Bowrider has a 22 degrees V-bottom hull that gives to the boat a “sporty” look. One of the innovations that the 260 brings is the extended swim platform that adds 22 inches to the already good-sized integrated swim platform. A couple of new standard items included in the 260 Bowrider are the sculpted snap-in carpet and stainless steel cup holders.

Interior


The interior of the 260 Bowrider reflects the Formula “spirit”: comfort, luxury and space. The large u-shaped aft lounge is comfortable, and the optional hi-low table converts the lounge into a dining area for up to six people. If you lower the optional dining table, insert the filler cushion you have a giant sun pad were you can really relax. At the helm you’ll find illuminated Livorsi gauges, a Ritchie compass, a digital depth finder, a Dino wheel, fingertip trim tab switches and a 12v outlet plus a Clarion Xtreme AM/FM CD player with four speakers, which comes standard with a one-year subscription to Sirius satellite radio. Other useful features are the wet bat with a pressurized fresh water sink, trash receptacle and removable cooler. You need storage space for your gear? Formula thought about that and provided lots of storage under the seats cushion, under the helm, in the deck, below the bar, practically every place that can store something is used for that.
