The Formula 280 Bowrider is the perfect choice for an entire day on the water. Formula designed this boat especially for you and your family making it more spacious and more comfortable.
The 280 Bowrider’s engine is placed under the rear aft seats, which lifts with the help of a single ram. In the engine hatch you can easily reach all the engine components, the wires and installations. The standard engine that comes whit the 280 Bowrider is a 375 hp MerCruiser 496 MAG engine. If you think that the 375 hp engine is not enough for you then I recommend the425 hp MerCruiser 496 MAG HO engine, or the two 260 hp MerCruiser 5.0L.
