Formula Boats 270 Bowrider Boat Features

Start your Formula journey with the 270 Bowrider boat, packed with fun features and family-friendly amenities. With the same stylish hull and exciting options, this vessel will please all passengers on board. John Adams, Formula’s exclusive designer, stayed true to the Formula heritage when he crafted a boat with a steady, 22-degree deadrise that measures 27 feet with an 8-foot 6-inch beam.

No matter what kind of boater you are, you’ll love everything the 270 offers, including its detailed cockpit, new dash design, aft-facing sun lounge and other fun features.

Formula Introduces New Generation — 270 Bowrider

When you board this 27-foot Bowrider, you’ll soon realize that your new boat is its own destination. Full of amenities, including plenty of entertaining space and adaptable storage for items of all sizes, the 270 Bowrider has what you need for a comfortable and memorable time, even when anchored at the dock.

With multiple engine configurations and the latest technological features available, your vessel is ready to carry you across the lake or sea in stylish comfort whenever you prepare for your next outing.

The Cockpit

The highly detailed and adaptable cockpit lets you put comfort and fun times with your loved ones first. With a visually appealing combination of striking colors and angles with detailed stitching on the upholstery, the wraparound seating and coaming areas have padded facets and 14 integrated cupholders for all to use.

Convertible seating is crucial for all-day comfort. The backrests on the helm and passenger seats effortlessly flip backward and forward, making it simple to watch watersports, supervise the kids or have peaceful waterside conversations. The lounge on the portside forms an L-shaped conversation area, perfect for lounging the day away.

Add additional space by positioning the backrest on the starboard helm forward. The sunpad now easily expands into an extended, roomy layout with an angled backrest for support, perfect for overseeing on-the-water activities while anchored. The bow seating area is highly accommodating concerning space, boasts plush filler cushions and supportive armrests and has an optional built-in beach ladder that converts for numerous activities.

The cockpit is the space where you and your loved ones will enjoy quiet time or fun-filled gatherings. Whether you want to spread out and relax in the plush seating or entertain your friends, you will have ample space and versatility to do so.

The Helm

The helm is newly designed, with attractive angling, molded fiberglass and luxuriously padded vinyl. The instrument panel separates high-polished surfaces that rest behind sleek, chrome-bezeled gauges. It sits centered near the conveniently placed rocker switches.

The shining stainless steering wheel is wrapped in leather, and a reliable Ritchie® compass and digital depth sounder give you total command of the helm. Mercury® DTS with SmartTow and SmartCraft™, VHF radio and a Garmin® GPS color chartplotter are also available as add-ons. Stash your smartphone and other belongings in the dash’s storage garage, with an iPod™/MP3 port and 12-volt outlet nearby to keep entertainment choices within reach.

The articulating bottom of the double-wide seat is ideal for those who value a versatile, ergonomic choice. You can sit, stand or remain in a raised-bolster position — whichever way makes you comfortable. While you’re there, you never have to worry about missing a thing, because the seat faces both forward and backward for your convenience.

When you’re at the helm of the Formula 270 Bowrider, you’ll feel confidence and peace of mind with everything you need to operate your boat safely and entertain your guests.


Picture it — you and your closest friends, a warm sunny day and everything you need to have a memorable boat party or picnic. Entertaining is simple when you choose the optional cockpit wet bar, which has a built-in custom molded sink, sturdy Corian® countertop with a bamboo extension and a cutting board. You’ll also enjoy three additional cupholders, as well as a three-beverage decanter shelf and undercounter storage to keep all your supplies. An Igloo® cooler or stainless refrigerator is also available.

The portside dash sports a glovebox with a Clarion® AM/FM stereo, iPod/MP3 and USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity and a 12-volt outlet. Stay connected while you’re on the water with everything you need to charge your devices, including five dual USB ports.

Want to play your favorite music or stream a new playlist while you swim? Now you can do so for as long as you want with no worries about your battery level. The cockpit contains four 6 1/2-inch marine-grade speakers — each with durable stainless steel grilles — ensuring everyone can hear the radio.

With so many options to enhance your experience, your boat will provide a unique on-the-water adventure each time you leave the shore. Whether cruising along or anchored at your favorite swimming spot, your 270 Bowrider will keep everyone on board happy, safe and comfortable.

The Head Compartment

You can easily access the boat’s head compartment, which lies behind a fiberglass door at the portside dash. The inside is furnished with a standard portable head with storage panels on the side to store sunscreen, first-aid supplies, hand lotions and other necessities. You can also select a vanity and molded sink, as well as an optional porcelain unit with a 13-gallon holding tank.


When you’re on the water, you need enough storage space to store all your gear, recreational items, safety equipment, cooking supplies and towels. On the 270, everything has an easily accessible place, with full-width storage under the sunpad and a molded-in cooler and trash container accessible under the portside lounge.

You’ll find even more storage space under the aft and starboard lounges and the helm and bow seating. Easily prevent hazardous clutter from gathering on the floor by storing larger items in the in-floor ski and wakeboard compartments, as well as in the console storage locker located in the starboard.

With so much adaptable storage, 270 Bowrider boats are equipped to protect your belongings and keep them safe and dry during your adventures. At Formula Boats, we are committed to ensuring satisfaction and helping you and your sea-faring loved ones maximize your fun on the water. With versatile storage, your 270 is here to help you enjoy lasting memories while safely securing the equipment you need to make it a great day for everyone.

Whether you’re interested in catching some sun, going water skiing or wakeboarding or taking a swim, we’ve got you covered.
