In­tro­duced in 2006, For­mula’s 45 Yacht was one of the first coupe-style craft. And 190 hulls later, it’s still go­ing strong.

“The gal­ley op­po­site has a stand-up fridge/freezer, two-burner elec­tric range (the Co­rian cover flips up to dou­ble as a splash board) and a mi­crowave . ... A hand­some teak and holly sole plays off of the rich cherry lam­i­nates.” Yacht­ing, Oc­to­ber 2007

In­tro­duced in 2006, the For­mula 45 Yacht has had 190 hulls built to date. No­table fea­tures: An early coupe-style de­sign, the yacht’s bridge deck of­fered pro­tec­tion from the weather while pro­vid­ing panoramic views. The 45 Yacht was de­signed for Volvo Penta’s IPS pod drives. Be­lowdecks: There’s a two-state­room lay­out with the mas­ter for­ward. A pocket door pro­vides pri­vacy. The guest state­room aft has twin berths that slide to­gether to form a queen for cou­ples. There’s an L-shaped gal­ley. A cherry in­te­rior and Co­rian coun­ter­tops were stan­dard, with four dé­cor op­tions. Avail­abil­ity: At press time, there were 27 For­mula 45 Yachts on the mar­ket, rang­ing from $244,900 for a 2007 to $1.06 mil­lion for a 2017.
