The new Formula 290 BR is a larger, much improved version of the old 280, which was pretty impressive in her day. The new boat weighs about 1600 lbs more, has a 22-degree deadrise instead of 21, and draws four inches more. But the big news is the layout and detail work is far richer with exquisite finish.
Some of the key features include the Imron graphic A or B with cockpit accent striping, Stainless steel hardware & 316L stainless steel welded rails, Two transom-mounted 150W 6 1/2" marine-grade stereo speakers with polished stainless steel grilles & separate tweeters, Starboard transom trunk storage & two fenders, Integrated swim platform with concealed stainless steel swim ladder, Transom shower, Complete Livorsi illuminated instrumentation, domed with chrome bezels, Bennett trim tab switches & indicators, Aft-facing sun lounge with storage below – converts to full-length sunpad, Modular bow seating/sunpad system, Molded wetbar with integrated sink, Corian countertop, 17-quart Igloo cooler, trash container & integral 316L stainless steel safety rail.
The sunpad is large and features an aft-facing headrest. A nice touch is the ability to easily make it larger by going into the cockpit and pulling the aft seat-back forward and flipping down the sunpad headrest and the whole area becomes one big bunny pad. It resets just as quickly.
The helm is nicely laid out with upper gauges mounted into molded mounts rather than just planted into a flat surface. The helm seat is double wide with separate flip-up bolsters. Waterproof rocker switches are lighted when activated, tilt hydraulic assist steering makes handling effortless.
