Formula 430 SSC Featured in BoatTEST.com Enewsletter!
If you subscribe to BoatTEST.com’s enewsletters, you saw that the 430 SSC was featured in their Wednesday edition. The 430 SSC was truly the talk of the industry when this video was shot in 2017 – view video here! Its unique combination of a sprawling bowrider cockpit with multiple seating and entertainment zones, plus a spacious, contemporary cabin fully equipped with galley, head and sleeping for four, coupled with the optional quad Mercury 400 Racing outboards ensured the 430’s enviable position in the marine industry (trust us, check out the video). Although BoatTEST.com coaxed the 430 to 64.2 mph, Formula lists a top end of 59-62 mph, depending on conditions—either way, this boat is an impressive performer. The BoatTest.com video still rings true today, but you never know when a new twist might pop up.
