Formula Boats: Horizons are Limitless in the 500 Super Sport Crossover

The 500 Super Sport Crossover is Formula’s latest and most innovative foray into its crossover lineup, and your best choice for taking a time out on the water! The 500 is Formula Exclusive Designer John Adams’ latest iteration of offshore boating enthusiast desires, born to impress; a fifty-foot private escape with your family and friends, combining a commanding offshore ride with amenities and luxury to be enjoyed by your group of friends and family. The 500 SSC offers the proven, surefooted FAS3Tech® stable and speedy ride with the Formula Crossover heritage of a wide-open, single level bowrider that invites open station-to-station wandering rather than rigid parading around an obtrusive console or clambering over a space-stealing catwalk.

Every need is satisfied in the 500 Super Sport Crossover, from the enclosed coupe-top salon to the aft lounge bar, a true evolution and culmination of the Formula SmartZone™ concept. From the full bow lounge forward through the sliding-glass walk-thru to the expansive extended swim platform aft, you will find air-conditioned comfort, entertainment and innovation everywhere in between. An adjustable triple helm and the latest electronics with digital switching controls, a full cockpit galley and bar across from a large lounge with table and tip-out barstools, with entertainment features ranging from top-end audio to the 65” power-lift LED TV with Bose soundbar all sit beneath the hardtop with sun and moon roofs.

Let your culinary passions delight your guests at the chef-inspired U-shaped cockpit kitchen, featuring an efficiency, enjoyable and expansive bi-level Corian countertop. Creations are effortless with the high-capacity dual-drawer stainless Vitrifigo pullout fridge, two-burner range and convection microwave. Directly aft, the stainless sink with cover and design-inspired faucet centers the station flanked by a full bank of hardwood dovetailed drawers, perceptively designed to protect your cooking tools from the elements while keeping them close. A full-width motorized glass bulkhead allows you to choose your degree of separation or shared fun with the aft cockpit lounges and bar areas.

The 500 SSC amenities below offer a respite from the outside world with a true cabin experience, much fuller than found on some other fifty-footers! A full microwave, coffee maker, AC/DC refrigerator and stainless steel sink galley placed at the cabin entry stairs flows into a large convertible Ultraleather U-lounge forward. Storage is abundant at the backrests and under the lounge, and a dual USB charging port is conveniently located nearby. To port is the electronics pylon with Rockford Fosgate stereo remote control, air conditioning control and a LaunchPort inductive charging system for the Formula-provided iPad. Digital switching controls all lighting and air conditioning as well as relays chartplotter and engine information. A separate app puts the stereo control in your hands with four cabin speakers that bring pure audio clarity while dramatic lighting acts as a powerful design element throughout. The 32” LED/LCD Smart HDTV with soundbar, Blu-ray™ player and multi-color LED accent lighting is perfectly positioned to entertain your guests.

To starboard, the seven-position wine cooler brings a toast to the end of the day. Storage is cleverly optimized at the stairway pylon, including a dedicated space for the Dyson V11 vacuum with charging station. A roomy cedar-lined hanging locker at the entryway keeps your guests’ belongings convenient and secure.A full head with Corian accents and surfacing, full vanity and sink, and spacious shower adds to the residential feel. Slip aft to find a separate stateroom with a full queen-size berth, sofa and full entertainment suite for a quick nap or a night on an adventure.

The double-step FAS3Tech hull will take your complement of guests to dinner across the bay or on far-flung offshore journeys in speed and comfort with the confidence of Mercury Racing outboard power that you have come to expect. Revolutionary quad Mercury 7.6L V12 600hp Verado Outboard motors with two-speed transmissions and steerable gearcases respond instantly to your control with electronic shift and throttle and Mercury® Joystick Piloting. You can be sure the 500 SSC ride will be comfortable in air-conditioned comfort, with Seakeeper® 9 gyro stabilization and 16 kw generator house power. The horizons are limitless in your 500 Super Sport Crossover!
