2018 FORMULA 430 Super Sport Crossover OB
HAVE THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS!
DECATUR, IN—Enter the Formula 430 Super Sport Crossover, a revolutionary concept that is destined to change the offshore boating experience. Formula combines the confident command of their sleek Super Sport lineup with open bow and cabin elements that spring from their unparalleled Crossover Bowrider, then incorporates the nimble versatility of a flush cockpit center console. The result is the paradigm-shifting 430 SSC – a transformative adventure where boaters truly can have the best of all worlds. At 43’ in length with a 12’ beam, the 430 attains Formula SS flagship status.
Fully engaged in the design/build process at Formula headquarters, the 430 is Formula Exclusive Designer John Adams’ finest interpretation of offshore boating enthusiast desires. With nearly 40 linear feet of cockpit space flowing uninterrupted on one continuous level, the 430’s SmartZoneTM concept fully optimizes the space with a side console helm, creating separate areas that foster a variety of activities and boating preferences while encouraging authentic connections among your guests. Add to that cabin accommodations which offer surprising amenities previously encountered only in closed bow vessels, including a convertible dinette/sleeping berth, aft stateroom with queen-size Sensus® memory foam bed, private stand-up head compartment, full galley and premium AV entertainment.
The side console helm maximizes Formula’s offshore heritage with triple command seating that is chiseled for support, yet expertly formed for ultimate comfort. Each seat bottom adjusts for options to sit, stand or rest on the upright seat, affording your team confident command for varying seas and activities. The sturdy composite dash features Raymarine twin eS128 GPS widescreen color chartplotters with upgrade to twin or triple gS165’s, Mercury® DTS with SmartCraft VesselViewTM and intuitive waterproof rocker switches logically arrayed in Liquid Black panels with bold, metallic accents. The 430 SSC also features impressive digital switching with a helm-mounted, dedicated Raymarine gS95 display and wireless iPad™ control with subscription-ready cellular remote control, putting mobile command at your fingertips. Quad Mercury 300 Verado Outboard motors, with upgrade to Quad 400’s, respond instantly to your control with electronic shift and throttle, Mercury® Joystick Piloting and impressive leather-wrapped, polished stainless tilt steering wheel.
Powered adjustable-height footrests further customize the fit, while the available 30,000 BTU reverse cycle cockpit air conditioner with strategically placed vents incorporated into the helm and seat backs takes this command to an entirely new level. The dash-mounted Rockford Fosgate® AM/FM stereo system with iPod/USB port and Bluetooth® delivers music through ten JL Audio® blue LED lighted chrome-finished speakers in the cockpit with 600W amplification and two lighted 200W subwoofers. The exacting proportions at the dash are accented by an upholstered eyebrow, introducing an upscale sophistication to the helm console zone. A lockable glove box with precisely sized compartments safeguards your personal electronics and valuables as you enjoy the day. Refreshments are kept conveniently at hand in the Yeti® Tundra 35 that glides out from the under-seat compartment at the helm.
Virtually every boater’s preference is satisfied in the 430 SSC cockpit, from up-front exhilaration in the expansive bow to the enclosed coupe with fiberglass hardtop, full-width motorized glass sunroof and triple command seating, to the U-shaped lounge aft where endless horizons and engaging conversation are enjoyed by all. Let your imagination soar as you head out on open water without the confines of a traditional, narrowly defined vessel.
Heading toward open horizons or hugging the coast, the ride is fast-paced, yet solid and secure as you pamper your guests with Formula performance and luxury. Sumptuously contoured cockpit seating with crisp, precision stitching, flowing color accents and recessed lumbar areas speaks volumes in styling expertise. The 430’s SmartZone design optimizes every square inch of your living space, the key to uninterrupted entertainment possibilities in the cockpit. Two distinct seating areas, the spacious U-shaped lounge and port-side divan, center on versatility, yet remain ready to connect – comfortable conversations or private retreats are equally valued. And, whether it’s gathering for lunch, basking in the sun or enjoying a soothing sunset cruise, the electrically actuated tables with filler cushions are raised or lowered individually to your preference, ready for the next on-water activity you and your guests may choose.
Let your culinary passions delight your guests at the chef-inspired outdoor kitchen, which features an expansive Corian® countertop, fiberglass molded sink with glide-away self-cover, design-inspired faucet, high-capacity stainless Isotherm pullout fridge, dedicated trash container and paper towel holder. A full bank of StarBoard® drawers is perceptively designed to protect your cooking tools from the elements, with no need to move them from your favored intuitive location. The available 240V electric grill can be perfectly positioned in the aft cockpit, offering a separate zone for the creative outdoor chef.
When you prefer an open vista, the 430 offers a seamless transition forward with the flush cockpit sole leading all the way to the bow. Wraparound seating offers multiple views and keeps your guests engaged. The forward-facing triple-wide lounge transitions to full-length starboard-side seating that sweeps widely across the forward bow and even arcs to port, maximizing your space and seating choices. A comfortable dual armrest, featuring two drink holders and a beautiful Corian accent, gives sure support at the forward-facing lounge and folds up when not in use. Two electrically actuated tables with filler cushions increase your dining and sunning possibilities, while a molded-in, dual-compartment cooler forward with trash receptacle to port keeps drinks and snacks chilled and ready to refresh your guests. A waterproof stereo control at the portside bow gives mode and volume selection to match the mood up front. When shade is preferred the bow sun shade with stainless supports is a welcome standard feature.
When you prefer a closer connection with your on-water experience, head aft to the spacious, rear-facing sun lounge. Whether you’re rafting with friends, on the hook or drifting with the currents, your personalized preference is achieved with individual backrests that easily adjust fore and aft. A spacious trunk keeps four fenders and cockpit filler cushions safely stowed, yet conveniently ready for a myriad of aquatic activities. Heading to the reef for an afternoon adventure? The 430’s SmartZone design means easy water access off the roomy, extended swim platform with removable T-ladder. There is no need for imposing hullside entries that limit your seating capabilities or force your crew to move aside. Quite the opposite, the 430 platform is a zone in itself, with 50 square feet of room, so swimmers can rinse off, towel and transition effortlessly to the cockpit living space without thought or inconvenience to anyone aboard. The platform’s four drink holders and waterproof stereo control with powerful JL Audio speakers extend your entertainment capabilities aft.
The 430 SSC brings choice to a new level. 25 drink holders throughout the bow and cockpit offer plenty of places for your guests to enjoy refreshments throughout the day. And, as you head out on each new journey, easy-access storage offers dedicated placement for your boating gear and personal belongings. From under-seat storage throughout to the roomy port-side gear lockers and points in between, over 13 different molded fiberglass tubs and lockers, along with tough, gelcoat-finished equipment holds, make your experience safe, seamless and easy. Four dual USB charging ports are conveniently located throughout, and at the end of the day, blue-white LED lighting in every zone adds a heightened awareness while soothing the soul. The optional underwater blue lights add distinctive style and appeal. The ‘Sound-to-Light’ upgrade with Wi-Fi control features full spectrum color choices that seamlessly sync to your music, creating a multi-sensory underwater light show.
More than just a retreat from the elements, the 430 cabin provides a completely residential experience through the clever utilization of space only Formula’s unique Crossover layout affords. Enter with ease through the portside door at the helm. Three solid wood steps lead down to a fully molded cabin liner with woodgrain-finish flooring and 6’ 6” headroom. Spacious, opening windows, a fully appointed lower kitchen, dining lounge, enclosed head and stateroom sleeping aft bring the entire Super Sport cabin experience to this Crossover design.
