Think it's down to these two boats. Both 2005, both with 496 engines. Formula has 155 hours and 270 has 360. The 270 is in much better condition, very well cared for no issues, pretty much ready to go. The Formula is a trade in, slightly rough condition, needs a really good cleaning, compound and waxing and I'm not sure it will ever look as good as the 270. I noticed the Formula has a deeper V and therefore is more tender on the hook. Looks to be an amazing boat at cruise but anchoring and swimming it may rock a bit more on anchor. Formula is $1,500 less money and it's local with a painted bottom which is a plus for me. Sea Ray would need to be shipped to me for about $1,000. No bottom paint so I would need to do that myself. So, thoughts on these two boats???
