2011 Formula Powerboats 290 FX4 boat

Formula FX4 (boat one) 2011 boat in test tank

This is the 2011 Formula Powerboats 290 FX4, the first model of its new FX Series.

Formula FX4 performance, fully powered by Twin 377 MerCruiser® Bravo III engines, attains top speed at 57 mph along with all the stability and handling characteristics of Formula Sun Sport’s proven 22-degree deadrise design.

The revolutionary FX concept blends spectacular eye appeal inspired by Formula’s legendary FAS3TECH performance line together with their popular day boating design of Sun Sports and Super Sports. The series will include the Formula 290 FX4, 310 FX5 and 350 FX6.

Silver Diamond Metallic Imron covers the entire surface of the 290 FX4 above the water line, including the deck and full cockpit, so that sunlight plays over the varying angles and planes with uniquely fascinating results. The bold graphics in high gloss red and satin black emphasize the excitement and exhilaration of FX sport boating.

The FX4 retains all the plus factors of the 290 Sun Sport introduced by Formula in 2010. The spacious cockpit features an adjustable dual helm seat and port lounge forward along with an L-shaped lounge and table arrangement aft that, with filler cushions, becomes a large sunpad.

The striking difference in the FX4 cockpit is its unique décor.

In the cabin a lounge with lumbar sections offers comfortable relaxation. The high-gloss, Deep Cherry wood dinette table lowers to create a sleeping berth with filler cushions. There is a Deep Cherry entertainment center with Corian® counter and stainless cup holders, while the hanging locker offers ample storage. The molded head compartment is complete with a porcelain unit, molded vanity with sink and demand water system. The 22-gallon holding tank provides for dockside pumpout.
