The 45 is designed to impress with classic Formula lines, a stunning visual presentation with unparalleled, state-of-the-art construction, world-class craftsmanship, and the finest in materials and components. Lavish amenities and clever features abound, securing the 45’s place in the elite yacht class

The 45 Yacht commands attention at 48’ 2” overall (45’ less bow platform) with a roomy 13’ 11” beam. Perhaps its most striking feature is the coupe top design, integrated with a motorized sunroof. A truly unique aspect of its design, unprecedented in the industry, is the windshield, which reaches fully from deck to top with no forward roof bracing. No supports mar the view at the front or sides, affording a stunning panorama for those in the cockpit.

Forward, comfortable, molded in-dash fiberglass steps with a 316L stainless handrail lead to the center windshield walk-thru door, providing ready access to the deck. Footing is sure, with nonskid surfaces surrounding twin sun pads with individual safety rails. The anchor windlass is concealed under a flush lid at the bow platform, along with the stainless steel anchor and coiled-hose, freshwater wash-down system. Bow rails with mid-level lifeline cables outlining the perimeter of the deck provide utmost safety on the water.

At the helm are dual electronic engine monitor displays and fuel and rudder gauges, logically arranged and beautifully displayed. The captain will discover all switches and electronic controls strategically positioned, achieving excellent helm ergonomics whether sitting, standing or leaning back against the double-wide command seat. Instrument panels are in a handsome mix of burl woodgrain and brushed metal and allow ample space to include the complete array of full-size Raymarine™ electronics that Formula offers and installs. The beautifully curved windshield, with side vents and center walk-thru door with multi-positioning window, provides open-air ventilation, while the available 30,000 BTU cockpit air conditioner with strategically-positioned vents throughout is a welcome answer for those hotter boating days. A sculpted, curvilinear lounge on the port side, available in Ultraleather™, is proportioned so that two couples can enjoy conversation along with the experience of boating with the captain and first mate.

At mid-cockpit, the 45 Yacht’s double-tiered, L-shaped cockpit wetbar/beverage center to starboard features a molded sink, refrigerator, available cockpit grill, ice chest and trash receptacle, cleverly concealed by a hand-crafted, Corian® countertop. The available cockpit LCD TV/DVD and the standard iPod™/MP3 port are delightful features that will provide hours of enjoyment on the water, while the six-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo, powered by a 300 watt amplifier and a 200 watt subwoofer, surrounds all aboard with high-fidelity audio.

The 45 cockpit layout is designed especially for longer adventures as well as day boating with friends and family. The comfortable seating arrangements promote a relaxed feel for creating new memories together. The versatile U-shaped lounge seating aft includes two Corian tables for friendly gatherings, lunch or a quick snack on the water. The sun pads, when added to the lowered tables, are perfect for basking in the sun. Throughout the cockpit, storage is abundant in a smooth fiberglass finish. The built-in port and starboard lockers add essential dedicated storage for tables, canvas and PFDs.

The 45’s expansive swim platform accommodates a personal watercraft or serves as a stage for an inflatable, if preferred. Launching and reboarding are easy with the optional hydraulic package for the platform. The aft trunk is accessed from the swim platform through a large curved fiberglass pneumatically-assisted hatch, complete with specially designed storage for fenders. The entire trunk raises for access to the walk-through engine room.

The cabin is entered through a curved acrylic sliding door. Elegant design and luxurious amenities make the entire presentation a masterpiece. Two generously-sized, custom HarbourView™ portlights with screens invite cooling breezes and a sweeping view to the horizon beyond. The high-gloss Deep Cherry-finished cabinetry and textured fabrics throughout provide a rich, satisfied ambiance, and the available Ralph Lauren Fabrics package elevates the décor to a new level. Lending natural light to both the salon and the galley by day are twin rectangular skylights uniquely designed into the ceiling. The custom-sculptured carpet richens the atmosphere of the salon and staterooms.

To starboard, the expansive U-shaped lounge upholstered in supple Ultraleather invites entertaining below deck. The high-gloss, inlaid cherry dining table is perfect for dining with friends, and is easily lowered and converted to a sleeping area with the filler cushions. Two upholstered pedestal dining stools oppose the lounge for added seating.

State-of-the-art technology delivers a true home-theater experience in the 45 salon. With its 40” widescreen LCD TV, Bose® Lifestyle® surround-sound DVD/CD player, iPod docking station, five double-cube speakers and a powered subwoofer, audio and video selections come to life.

Everywhere you turn you will discover luxury. The showcase display of tempered stemware, tumblers and a wine rack in a dramatically lit setting is perfect for those quieter moments.

The contemporary L-shaped galley to port is created to encourage epicurean adventure. The high-gloss Deep Cherry-finished cabinet doors and drawer fronts are aesthetically pleasing, while the handcrafted dovetailed hardwood drawers are finely crafted and durable. Galley storage areas are more than generous, plus underneath is an in-floor pantry to hold supplies. The Corian countertop, double-bowl stainless sink, large, upright refrigerator with separate freezer compartment, recessed two-burner range with Corian cover, brushed stainless steel convection/microwave oven, exhaust fan and concealed in-counter trash receptacle create a complete culinary workspace.

Forward, the owners’ private stateroom enjoys complete privacy with a pocket entry door featuring a full-surface mirror. The spacious centerline bed offers roomy storage underneath plus four dovetailed hardwood drawers. Two hanging lockers, paneled with cedar, illuminate as the doors open. Overhead a Bomar® hatch features a roll-out SKYscreen and privacy shade. The owner can use this retreat to watch the flatscreen LCD TV/DVD player, or enjoy the cabin’s audio system with Bose 161 speakers that produce lifelike stereo sound.

The owners’ exceptionally large, private head and separate shower compartments are entered from the stateroom only. The head compartment with vanity, to starboard, and shower area, to port, are separated to allow individual use. Superior amenities include a contoured, high-gloss Deep Cherry-finished vanity with Corian countertop, deep molded sink with wall faucet, Corian flooring and a porcelain Flush and Forget® VacuFlush® head unit. The Corian seat, vanity drawer, overhead cabinetry storage and large wall mirror extend the master head’s list of amenities. The separate shower offers an adjustable-height showerhead, a curved Corian shower seat, mirrored storage cabinet and Corian flooring.

The guest stateroom aft offers privacy with twin beds that cleverly change to a queen-size berth with flip-out hideaway filler cushions. Large dovetailed hardwood drawers are located beneath each bed with additional trunk-style storage underneath, and there is also an illuminated, mirrored cedar-lined hanging locker. A flatscreen LCD TV/DVD combo makes this an ideal location for video gaming. A guest stateroom vanity in high-gloss Deep Cherry-finish with Corian countertop and stainless steel sink is located to port. The adjoining private head compartment, complete with shower and porcelain Flush and Forget VacuFlush head unit, is convenient for day and overnight guests, reserving the master stateroom area exclusively for owners.

The Formula 45 Yacht is powered by the Volvo Penta IPS 600 Diesel with joystick, which makes docking and tight maneuvers easy.

Formula Quality

The best of all cruising becomes an everyday reality in a new 2008 Formula Yacht. Elegance of design, accelerated pace and smooth, stable performance heighten the sense of expectation for everyone aboard.

Superior in every respect, Formula Yachtss are built with rugged construction for offshore conditions, yet each feature is attuned to pure comfort, while a distinctive aura of luxury prevails throughout.

Formula Yacht cockpit design always encourages friendly gatherings. The generous aft lounge includes tables and filler cushions to accommodate various activities and interests. Directly opposite, the wetbar, topped with beautifully handcrafted Corian® , welcomes spontaneous entertaining. Everywhere possible, smoothly finished storage areas contain the gear and personal extras that assure a fully satisfying experience on the water.

Formula technology updates include white/blue LED remote control cockpit, arch and hardtop lighting along with LED swim platform lights. Also, the effect of optional blue LED underwater lighting is truly fascinating.

Larger LCD HDTV/DVD systems offer the sharpest viewing, and the marine speakers, now enhanced by stainless grilles, are complemented by separate tweeters. The iPod™/MP3 port at each helm is a popular feature, as is the available docking station in the cabin.

On the foredeck, the full length sunpads feature Sunbrella® acrylic fabric, and on the 37 and 40 PCs, the sunpads adjust to form a chaise lounge. Each Performance Cruiser cabin elicits immediate admiration.

The flawless, high-gloss, Deep Cherry finish of the cabinetry is echoed in solid wood tables, while gleaming, handcrafted Corian provides the perfect counterpoint. The galley is equipped with a refrigerator, polished stainless steel sink, microwave oven and a concealed electric stove.

Each hardwood drawer has dovetailed corners as in all fine furniture. Either American Cherry woodgrain-finish flooring or warm, subtly patterned custom carpet is a beautiful touch underfoot.

As always, the luxuriously supple Ultraleather™ lounge is the natural center for socializing, whether for eating, watching TV or just for interesting conversations. Metallic Imron® Flagship designs continue to be the most popular choice in selecting exterior graphics for Performance Cruisers.

ONLY THE BEST COMPONENTS MAKE IT INTO A FORMULA Formula tests components extensively for quality and endurance – if an item fails to pass, it won’t be in your Formula Cruiser. All railing is 316L stainless steel, the highest marine-grade available. 316 stainless deck cleats are installed with stainless lock nuts and backing plates for maximum reinforcement.

All other hardware is stainless and bolted securely with chrome-plated stainless fasteners. Inserting flexible O-rings ensures a watertight seal. Formula designs electrical systems to keep you on the water.

Each wiring connection is individually crimped by hand and heat-sealed with double-wall shrink tubing instead of using a pre-insulated connector which is common in the industry. For longer runs, color-coded wiring series are neatly routed through flexible, protective conduit. ETA® circuit breakers with reset capabilities shield your systems from excess electric current damage.

For added reliability, deep-cycle batteries that can be charged repeatedly without losing strength are standard in all Formula Yachts.


Formula Performance Cruisers move out at an exciting pace with responsive handling and a smooth, enjoyable ride.

At the core of Formula’s legendary performance are top quality materials and exacting lamination procedures developed throughout years of offshore boating experience.

Computercut, custom-ply fiberglass shapes and resin are layered according to specified procedures, and PVC structural foam is added in high stress areas for lightweight, integral strength.

Formula perfects surface beauty and durability by utilizing premium-grade AME® 5000 resin and Coremat® to avoid the distortion seen in other boats, and also by allowing optimal cure time in rigorously maintained molds.

Each Cruiser hull is reinforced with a unique, resin-encapsulated, suspended stringer system. Additional reinforcement is also achieved by placing custom-fabricated fiberglass shapes, or pultrusions, in the hull bottom and along gunwales.

Chemically bonding the deck and hull, then securing with stainless steel bolts through heavy backing plates creates an inseparable meld.

Formula’s vibrant, long-lasting finish far surpasses all others through a unique DuPont Imron® process. Formula Imron graphics never chalk or fade as compared to colored gelcoat. 


Formula created the Yacht  line to set a new course in multipurpose design, pointing the way boaters could enjoy even more pleasurable experiences on the water.

Key Formula innovations and refinements include the walk-thru windshield with built-in steps and hand rail, convertible U-shaped lounge seating and double-wide helm. The inviting U-shaped lounge seating with table converts to a generous sunpad.

All seating is contoured with preshaped foam components for maximum comfort along with special DriFast® foam that does not retain water. Marine polyurethane paneling rather than wood is used throughout the cockpit, and seat cores are either rotocast plastic or formed fiberglass to assure longevity.

Formula’s superior cockpit upholstery, a rugged, transportationgrade vinyl, is tear-resistant due to higher density and special backing material. Computer-patterned and cut shapes are assembled by skilled sewers using Tenara® thread that does not deteriorate from UV rays, cleaning agents or saltwater.

PreFixx® treated white vinyl resists staining, and color-permeated vinyl accents coordinate with the exterior Imron® graphic.
