260 BR, inside and out, challenges the standards of perfection.
As reviewed in Boating:
Everything about the 260 BR, inside and out, challenges the standards of perfection.
Simply flipping up the seat bolster at the helm stands out because it becomes a flush leaning cradle, like the kind we find on performance boats. On a day when we were avoiding the middle of our test lake on most boats, we stood through the rough stuff on the 260 and noted how solidly the boat held its ground, even in hard turns. It sounds like hyperbole, but the ride was so silky smooth
Lift is key to milking speed from a big hull. But we think boaters are more impressed with sturdy cruising than with flat-out quick's. And that's harder to accomplish in a boat than in any other type of vehicle.
A close inspection reveals why the 260 stands so firm. If the builder is so particular as to plumb cup holders to the bilge or to use acrylic hatches to prevent gouges or to finish the bilge with gelcoat or to include porcelain in the head (like home!) ... then you know everything has to be first-rate.
Quality comes from fit and finish, which are costly for Formula to accomplish. One example on the 260: the wet bar (with two Corian tops that open in perfect synch on gas struts) is a separate unit from the deck. So are the fiberglass bases under the double-wide helm seat and the engine compartment. Because they are not molded in, the units won't flex with the deck, which over time would skew the seat cushions and hatches into a cockeyed fit.
