The newly redesigned Formula 310 Bowrider for 2015 is loaded with great ideas for carefree fun on the water. At 31´ with a beam of 9´ 6˝, the 310 BR advances the hallmark layout of Formula Sun Sports with fresh, creative updates. All popular cockpit features remain plus the roomy, adult-friendly bow area that makes the most of space. Traditional bow seating alternates with an arrangement of two forward facing seats designed so that one’s feet are placed comfortably on the cockpit sole. Typical of Formula foresight, filler cushions ­store away in a dedicated locker area.
Twin command seats that adjust and convert fore or aft individually face the handsome dash with Liquid Black panelswhile Livorsi® illuminated instrumentation, domed w/chrome bezels and the Garmin® 547 GPS color chartplotter, make systems and location easy to monitor, and the sporty steering wheel in leather wrapped stainless tops off the helm in smart style. A dash-mounted, full feature remote stereo communicates with eight marine-grade speakers with stainless steel grille covers. There is also an iPod/MP3 port at the helm and Bluetooth to enjoy personal favorites with full stereo system delivery. Two smartphone dash pockets and the lockable under-sash storage compartment keep your valuables safe while three dual USB charging ports keep all of your electronics charged and ready.

Stainless steel is the word for lasting beauty and durability in the 310 BR. All railing is 316L. Eight stainless Formula logo-cast cleats, the stainless fuel fill, polished engine vent trim and polished port lights with screens send that message perfectly.

Designed to spend all day on the water, the comfortable aft lounge arrangement with stowable table invites spur-of-the-moment entertaining and easily converts to a large sunpad by adding the filler cushions. The forward portside lounge also encourages friendly gatherings and provides dedicated dive tank storage and a trash container underneath. The molded wetbar with with integrated sink and dry storage compartments accessible by Corian® accordion opening countertops plays right along, and in place of the standard cooler, a stainless-front, pullout refrigerator with individual racks for food and beverages is available. As usual, polished drink holders are within easy reach of everyone aboard.

Smoothly finished fiberglass storage compartments throughout the 310 BR secure other carry-on items for the day’s activities. In-floor wakeboard and ski storage is also provided. To port, the head compartment is entered through a molded fiberglass door detailed with vinyl and two stainless drink holders. The head unit is VacuFlush®, and a polished stainless sink is set in the Corian counter. The flooring is a woodgrain finish, and a privacy window slides open for ventilation.

The aft-facing sun lounge has dual-position backrests to give you endless seating configurations and sunning positions. The trunk below stores your fenders and dock lines for when you need them. Cockpit and swim platform blue/white LED courtesy lights illuminate in response to a hand held remote controller adding ease of entry at night and imaginative touch.

Formula, long noted for sleek styling and excellent performance, establishes another winner in the 310 Bowrider. With Volvo or Mercruiser gas or diesel power from twin 320 HP to twin 430 HP, and with the deep-V hull design, the ride is smooth, fast and exciting. The refreshed 310 Bowrider joins the ever-popular Formula Sun Sport/Bowrider lineup.
