 94 original hours on as new 2007 Formula 28' bowrider with brand new 2014 custom manufactured Ryan triple-axle trailer. Factory ordered Mercruiser 496 Mag HO with Bravo 3 twin-propeller outdrive, $10k chrome wakeboard tower, factory upgraded premium audio system, bathroom with sink and flush toilet, bimini top with black Sunbrella fabric, Cockpit covers in Sunbrella fabric, complete high-density snap-out carpet kit and much more. Boat is in as new condition with no scratches, scrapes, rips or tears... as close to perfection as possible. Why spend $140k to buy new when you'll save $60k with this pre-owned vessel.

Trailer is the finest money can buy.  All of the accessories and options were ordered including disc brakes on all 3 axles, upgraded custom wheels, radial tires, diamond plate on the front step, diamond plate on the rear step and diamond plate on the full length of each fender, Laser Cut Engraving of Formula logo on the trailer that is back lighted for glow effect at night, custom fit bunks specifically for this boat.  In a highly unusual step, the boat was actually brought to the Ryan Trailer factory outside Portland, Oregon and custom fit exactly to the boat.  Usually, trailer manufacturers work off of standard measurements and approximate the fit.  Not in this case.  This trailer was specifically fit to this boat.  It is truly a piece of art to those who understand trailers.  The paint work is all done in rich black with custom silver stripe to match the boat.

All documents including original bill of sale, owner's manuals, brochures, maintenance records and clean Washington State Titles in my name for both Boat and Trailer. Was $89,995, NOW $10,000 Price Reduction $79,995/offer. No trades, low-ball offers, brokers or spam, please.  Serious buyers are welcome to call me.  My name is Bob and my phone is 206-920-1184.  Boat is for sale locally and may be removed at any time.  Boat is still being used and may accrue more hours prior to sale.  You are welcome to schedule a showing of the boat and test drive.

See the complete article at on this incredible boat... It begins with a hand-laminated hull and Formula’s grid stringer system, which accomplishes a couple of things. First, it provides a solid skeleton for the hull. Second, due to the way it’s designed and built, the grid system also provides a positive-molded gelcoat surface in the bilge, which makes for a much neater appearance and easy cleanup. What’s more, all the cavities in the grid system are filled with foam for extra flotation and sound deadening.

The grid system is bonded to the inside of the hull with Plexus adhesive, which is so strong, dynamite is about what it takes to remove it. Formula also bonds the hull and deck with Plexus before it tops the seam with a stainless rub rail. Look closely at the screws on a Formula’s rub rail. All the slots on the Phillips screws are indexed perfectly in a north-south, east-west orientation. All of them. On every boat.

Up top, the 260 Bowrider’s deck and cockpit liner are one piece, which also makes for more solid construction. In the bow, Formula provides filler cushions as a standard feature. They not only fill in the gap between the cushions, but they also fill in the angled back rests between the bow walk-through. It’s a fantastic setup that allows three-wide lounging up front.

Behind the windshield, Formula designer John Adams created a space that’s welcoming and usable.

To port, the lounge can be used as an aft-facing chaise or a bench seat for two. The back rest and portside dashboard conceal a spacious head.

The wetbar includes a sink, Corian countertops, a concealed trash bin and a 17.5-quart Igloo cooler.

Just behind the lounge lies the wetbar, which includes a sink, Corian countertops, a concealed trash bin and a 17.5-quart Igloo cooler. For added convenience and safety, the wetbar is fitted with a stainless grab rail and its hatches are supported with gas struts.

To starboard, the 260 has a U-shape lounge that wraps from behind the helm seat to the stern bench. A standard removable dinette table can be set at two heights, one for dining and a second, lower setting that provides a base for another filler cushion.

Of course, the helm is the place to be and the 260 has room for two, with a separate flip-up thigh bolster at each position. Like all Formulas, the helm is laid out intelligently—and more important—simply, which makes checking the vitals that much easier. Buyers can choose between silver burl or woodgrain dash panels. A standard Ritchie compass tops the dash, which features Livorsi instrumentation, a Kenwood audio system and waterproof accessory switches protected by circuit breakers.

Some other thoughtful touches include a motorized engine hatch, white LED courtesy lights for the cockpit and swim platform and polished cupholders throughout the interior. Such features typically aren’t found in entry level boats, but they are the kind of niceties that longtime boaters can appreciate.

The 260 Bowrider could never pass for an entry level boat, but when people get into boating, models like the 260 are quite likely the end they have in mind—when they want to show they have arrived.
