ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Everywhere you looked on the Formula 21 you couldn't help but notice the application of high quality fittings and almost pedantic attention to detail. I noticed things as simple as screw heads with all slots perfectly lined up. You know when someone goes to this much trouble a boat has been painstakingly put together with no shortcuts. And neither should there be... A classic hull deserves classic workmanship.
WHAT'S THE FORMULA?
The Formula 21 has an LOA of 6.4m including outboard pod and bowsprit, with a hull only length of 5.9m. It features a moulded beam of 2.39m and a variable deadrise with 20Â° at the transom.
Sea conditions didn't allow for safe WOT operation, however, the 200hp Optimax is reported to push the Formula 21 along at close to 100kmh. That's quick in anyone's language and also an indication you could get away with a considerably smaller outboard if speed isn't the 'be all and end all'.
The Formula 21 ate the short sharp chop at the entrance of the Patterson River and as we headed out to the more exposed parts of the bay it seemed to revel in the conditions.
