Formula 31 PC

March 25, 2015

Mastery of design and construction come together in the creation of Formula’s all-new 31 Performance Cruiser. Exclusively designed by John Adams, at 33 feet 1 inch in length overall (31´ 8˝ less the bow platform) and with an 11-foot beam, the 31 PC presents a familiar Formula profile with a forward-swept radar arch, sleek, flowing lines, plentiful storage and expansive cockpit. The 31 provides truly enjoyable cruising for the entire crew.

The 31 PC cockpit is exceptional in detailed beauty and creative versatility. The aft cockpit, accessed through the portside transom door, includes several Formula hallmark features. The U-shaped lounge greatly extends entertainment possibilities. Pleasant dining space is afforded when the tables are in position, and when the tables are lowered with cushions in place, the lounge becomes a large, well-protected sunning area. When not in use, the tables and filler cushions stow in their dedicated storage space in the transom trunk along with four standard fenders. The design-integrated, Corian®-topped wetbar serves as a convenient refreshment center and also can be equipped with a refrigerator or icemaker. Twelve polished stainless steel drink holders ensure a place for everyone’s drink.

The 31’s helm seating with dual-position command and companion seats provides a comfortable ride while sitting, standing or leaning back against the well-padded leading edge. Passengers enjoy the view and interacting with the captain from a curved lounge on the port side. The helm features a full array of custom, chrome-bezel Livorsi® illuminated gauges set in burl wood-finish dash panels to easily monitor the boat’s systems. Panel space is available for further custom electronics.

Twin DriFast® sun pads invite lounging on the foredeck, accessed by way of the center walk-thru windshield and integral molded steps. Non-skid surfaces and bowrails provide secure footing to the flush anchor locker housing an electric anchor windlass with a polished stainless steel anchor and 200´ of chain.

The cabin, accessed through a sliding, one-piece acrylic door, is spacious and inviting with up to 6´ 4˝ of headroom. The salon features a full galley, including a microwave oven and 120V/12V refrigerator with front panel and cabinet doors in high-gloss Deep Cherry finish. A stainless steel sink and the concealed 2-burner electric stove with safety shut-off make cooking and cleaning easy. A trash receptacle is set in the handcrafted, solid Corian® countertop. To starboard, dining is a pleasant experience with the curving, Ultraleather™ upholstered lounge and dual-height, high-gloss solid wood tables. A 23˝ flatscreen LCD HTDTV/DVD combo is mounted for easy viewing and includes a dockside access cord for cable hook-up. Entertainment is further enhanced by the Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with a complimentary six-month subscription to Sirius™ Satellite digital broadcast. The aft cabin with privacy curtain, Ultraleather lounge and high-gloss wood cocktail table invites both daytime activities and nighttime rest. The head compartment features a molded fiberglass vanity with lower doors and in high-gloss Deep Cherry finish with a solid Corian countertop and stainless sink, shower, exhaust fan and VacuFlush® unit with holding tank and dockside pumpout.

Sleeping accommodations for six include converting both the salon lounge and the aft cabin lounge to double berths. The forward double berth features drawer storage beneath and a cedar-lined hanging locker with an automatic light. A deck hatch with integrated screen and blind provides ventilation, and a 12,000 BTU reverse-cycle air conditioner is available.

An 18˚ deep-V deadrise makes for a smooth, solid ride offshore with sterndrive power starting with twin 300-horsepower packages by Mercury Mercruiser or Volvo. The powerplants are accessed via a powered engine hatch, revealing an orderly, logically arranged engine room designed for serviceability.

Elegance in motion, the 31 PC is optionally equipped with a polished, stainless steel windshield frame. Imron® optional Flagship hullside graphics include sun-sparked Metallics, plus lustrous Pearl. As pleasing to the eye as it is to operate, the sleek 31 Performance Cruiser reaffirms Formula’s legacy of presenting the finest, most luxurious cruisers in the world.
