DECATUR, IN—Once again, John Adams, Formula’s exclusive designer of over 35 years, demonstrates mastery of design and construction in the cruiser arena through the Formula 34 Performance Cruiser. At 35 feet, 7 inches in length overall and with an 11-foot, 6-inch beam, the 34 PC presents classic Formula styling with its forward-swept radar arch, sleek, flowing lines, plentiful storage and expansive cockpit. The all-new 34 PC provides exhilarating freedom on the water and truly enjoyable cruising.

The 34 PC cockpit is exceptional in detailed beauty and creative versatility. The aft cockpit, accessed through the starboard-side transom door, includes several Formula hallmark features. The U-shaped lounge accommodates the entire crew and greatly extends entertainment possibilities. Pleasant dining space is afforded when the tables are in position. When lowered and with cushions in place, the lounge becomes a large, well protected sunning area. When not in use, the tables and cushions stow in their dedicated storage space in the trunk compartment, along with four standard fenders. The design-integrated, Corian®-topped wetbar serves as a convenient refreshment center, equipped optionally with a pull-out refrigerator with stainless steel beverage rack or icemaker. Twelve polished stainless steel drink holders ensure a place for everyone’s drink.

For the captain, the 34’s twin command seating with adjustable helm and passenger seats provides a comfortable ride while sitting, standing or leaning back against the well-padded leading edge. Passengers also enjoy the view from a lounge seat on the port side. The helm features a full array of custom, chrome-bezel illuminated Livorsi® gauges set in burl wood-finish dash panels to easily monitor the boat’s systems. Panel space is available for further custom electronics. Livorsi® chromed shifters and throttles deliver smooth, precise operation. An optional bow thruster provides the maneuvering edge for challenging docking situations.

Twin sun pads invite lounging passengers up the integral molded steps to the center walk-thru windshield. Non-skid surfaces and bowrails ensure a secure passage to all areas of the deck, including the flush anchor locker lid. Beneath is a stainless-steel anchor, an electric windlass and 200´ of chain. An optional concealed freshwater washdown system keeps the chain and anchor clean.

The spacious cabin, accessed via a sliding, one-piece acrylic door, is open and inviting with up to 6´ 8˝ of headroom. The salon features a full galley, including a microwave oven and large under-counter refrigerator. A stainless steel sink, concealed two-burner electric stove, in-counter bottle storage and trash receptacle are set in a handcrafted, solid Corian® countertop. A curving, Ultraleather™ upholstered lounge is complemented by high-gloss wood sectional dining tables. High-glass Deep Cherry wood-grain finish cabinetry adds a rich accent and contains the 23˝ LCD HDTV with DVD player with dockside access cord, adjustable for viewing from either the salon lounge or the forward centerline bed. Entertainment is further enhanced by the Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with a complimentary six-month subscription to Sirius™ Satellite digital broadcast. Reverse-cycle air conditioning is standard, as is the central vacuum system.

Sleeping accommodations for six include convertible double berths in the salon lounge and in the aft cabin. The forward centerline bed features drawer storage beneath flanked by a cedar-lined hanging locker with automatic light. A deck hatch with integrated screen provides ventilation, and AC/DC outlets are convenient for accessories. The aft cabin with privacy curtain and high-gloss Deep Cherry wood cocktail table invites both daytime activities and nighttime rest. To port, the head compartment is equipped with high-gloss Deep Cherry finish cabinets and Corian countertops. A folding acrylic door encloses the stand-up shower.

An 18º deep-V deadrise makes for a smooth, solid ride offshore with power available in sterndrive I/O or V-drive inboard ranging from twin 300- to 420-horsepower packages by Mercury Mercruiser or Volvo. The powerplants are serviced either via the powered engine hatch or a quick-access “day hatch.”

Elegance in motion, the 34 PC is optionally equipped with a lustrous, stainless steel windshield frame. Imron® Flagship hullside colors include Metallics and Pearl finishes. The Formula 34 Performance Cruiser truly shines on the water!
