BEST OVERALL APPEAL
Formula 310 Sun Sport
It's easy to pick a Formula boat for any "best of" list. The company does not push marketing cliché on the boating public, and allows its boats to speak for themselves. Still, our resulting analysis of the 310 sounds like jargon. But it's true: The 310 Sun Sport carries the dock appeal for which the brand is known, exuding a Formula-only mix of aerodynamic flair, elegance and sportiness.
Everything about the 310 is rock solid because of all the top-end fiberglass, gel and stainless steel that's used. The only element that isn't rigid is the Ultraleather used in the cabin, which we rank as the plushest upholstery in the business. There are 31-foot boats with larger berths, but none with a better combination of open-air cruising and quality construction.
Boaters have high expectations for Formula, and the 310 clears the bar.
Best of All
The cockpit galley includes a stainless-steel fridge, solid Corian counter and a fiberglass sink, all of which far exceed the industry standards.
