Is there anything better than a blast of sea air against your skin on a sweltering summer day? Nope, and it seems Formula doesn’t think so either. The builder just revealed plans for an addition to its line of Super Sport Crossovers, the series that combines a fast ride with a full cabin and open bow. Like its siblings, the new 380 is based on Formula’s deep-V performance hull, and it will be powered by a pair of brawny sterndrives: standard 430-hp MerCruisers or 520-hp Mercury Racing engines as options. Sterndrive power will be popular with people who boat on big lakes, and others in saltwater who like the wide swim platform that comes with I/O propulsion. Most notable about the 380, though, is the way it combines a cabin for four passengers with a single-level deck. There is a seamless transition from the cockpit to the bow, through a unique slide-open windshield. With the 380, Formula takes the oversized dayboat to the next level. Look for it in fall 2019.
