Formula designed the 310 Bowrider to provide enough amenities to encourage friends and family to spend all day on the water enjoying their favorite activities - swimming, diving, tow sports or simply socializing.
Formulas are well known for their fit-and-finish, especially with the gleaming Imron paint job. This 310 Bowrider is loaded with upscale features that rival anything in class. With the versatile seating, she appeals to a wider audience, whether cruising, coving, or just entertaining dockside. By partnering with Mercury, performance is improved along with much more convenience and functionality added to her operations.
The performance Formula is known for comes from the 310 Bowrider’s Deep-V hull design and impressive powerplant - Twin 350-hp Mercury 6.2L V8s. The GM-built Mercury marine engines have a closed cooling system and are connected to counter-rotating duo propeller Bravo Three sterndrives with Axis Joystick Helm controls.
The Numbers. The Formula 310 Bowrider has a LOA of 31’ (9.45 m), a beam of 9’6” (2.90 m), and a draft of 37” (93.98 cm). With an empty weight of 10,251 lbs. (4,650 kg), 48 percent (66 gallon/250 L) fuel and two people onboard, we had an estimated weight of 11,123 lbs. (5,045 kg).
Top Speed. With the twin 350-hp Mercury 6.2L V8s turning Mercury Bravo Three Sterndrive units with duo propellers, and run up to 5350 rpm, we reached a top speed of 52 mph in calm waters
Formulas are well known for being sea kindly so we wouldn’t expect any surprises. The 310 Bowrider quickly settled into her 5-degree bow-high attitude and we felt no need to mess with the outdrive trim, or Trim tabs in calm waters. Acceleration is brisk, turns are solid with no ventilation of the propellers, and zero chine walk.
While outboard powered boats have risen in popularity in the past decade, sterndrives are desirable because they allow the boat builder a cleaner, unfettered stern for entertainment areas and larger swim platforms. With an optional extended swim platform and the low-profile engines hidden below the sun pad, sterndrives have merit in space saving and opening the Formula 310 Bowrider to be a roomier entertainment platform.
The Formula Bowrider 310 is roomy and comfortable with a classic interior. As our flagship bowrider, this is an upscale sport boat with impeccable performance that will be sure to impress. It is 31’ with a beam of 9’6” and includes plenty of seating and amenities, including stereo, stowable table, sunpad and ski/wakeboard storage.
The cockpit is a continuous molded deck and liner, and the vinyl decking continues. Seating starts with a J-shaped bench to starboard. We can increase the capacity by flipping the helm seatbacks forward and the aft seatbacks aft. Twin pedestal tables with beverage holders can easily be added to the cockpit to create a dining area. Like all seats on this boat, there are beverage holders, grab rails, and speakers recessed into the bulwarks alongside and storage underneath. There’s a color-matched molded wet bar to port. Under a bi-fold hatch is a sink plumbed to the 29-gallon (110 L) water tank recessed into the Corian countertop. Alongside is a self-draining prep area. Four beverage holders are across the back. Below is a stainless grab rail, and in lieu of the standard 17.5-quart (16.56 L) cooler there’s an optional cockpit refrigerator. Forward of the wet bar, there’s an inward facing bench seat measuring 64” (162.56 cm) and it’s configured to accommodate forward, aft, or side facing occupants. All seating is upholstered in moondust vinyl. Between the wastebasket and refrigerator is a thoughtful touch - a 110v outlet wired to the inverter.
Two consoles support the split window bowrider windshield. The head console is to port and the helm console is to starboard. The helm is a molded fiberglass console with storage inside. It includes a Chartplotter Raymarine Axiom GPS Unit and on the Right side a Mercury Smart Craft multi-function display. Analog gauges are to the left and outdrive trim gauges flank a compass above. Has the DTS Digital Throttle System, Digital Anchoring System and Axis Joystick on the Starboard Side of the helm. To starboard of the wheel are the electrical switches for lighting, as well as the standard windshield wiper switch. Below the rockers are the Stereo control head unit with the VHF just below. The helm seat is double wide, each cushion measuring 18” (45.72 cm) with contoured padding and multiple tones. Both include flip bolsters and seatbacks that flip, so the helm can convert to additional cockpit seating. The windshield wraps around each console with two pieces of tinted glass per side framed in stainless steel. There are support struts on either side of the opening pass-through window.
The head compartment is in the port console. Inside is headroom of 4’6” (1.37 m). Note, how Formula configured the door to make getting in and out of the compartment easier. The space includes a porcelain VacuFlush head unit plumbed to a 36-gal (136.27 L) holding tank fitted with a dockside pump-out. There’s a molded vanity with a stainless-steel sink, Corian countertop, mirrored cabinet storage, and below is a color coordinated wood-grained vinyl flooring.
The 22” (55.88 cm) wide walkthrough to the bow includes double door access to the compartmentalized storage in the helm console. Electronics and general storage are behind the forward door. Dedicated table storage is in the aft compartment. The forward helm compartment also has a fire extinguisher, stereo and amplifier, the main power switches and a hull side window (far right under the shelf) for natural light. On chilly days one can close off the windshield and swing the helm storage door closed to create a lower air dam. Seating wraps all the way around with a bolster. Filler cushions can be removed, to convert to chair style seating. The aft seatbacks include flip down armrests, not flip up that need to be latched and unlatched from a finger-pinching release. The same pedestal table that fits the cockpit can be used in the bow. Using the short pedestal lowers the table so with a filler cushion on top the bow converts to a sun pad as well. The bulwarks have a recess housing the JL audio speakers, stainless beverage holders, charging ports and grab handles. Nineteen-inch (48.26 cm) deep storage compartments are under the seats.
Fully forward, the ground tackle is under a hatch opened with a lift and lock latch and supported with a gas strut. The compartment includes an optional electric windlass handling the all-chain rode leading through a chain stopper and forward through the stem anchor roller. Rode access is next to the windlass and just large enough to reach a hand through. The control switches are just ahead. Eight-inch (20.32 cm) cleats are to the sides.
