The All-New 400 SSC – The Latest Member of the Formula Crossover Fleet!
Published: Friday, January 18, 2019
Introducing the Formula 400 Super Sport Crossover, a pivotal addition to the revolutionary Formula Crossover fleet – now five models strong and growing – that is rapidly changing the entire boating experience. Taking its cue from the phenomenal 430 SSC, the 400 combines confident Super Sport performance with Formula’s versatile open bow and cabin Crossover elements. Now boaters can venture beyond narrowly defined conventions and enjoy all that boating was meant to be!
At 40’ in length with a 12’ beam, the 400 SSC centers on the full-height windshield and coupe top design that encloses the entire width of the cockpit, allowing guests to move beyond the confines of a center console’s narrow, pilothouse tradition. The Formula Crossover SmartZone™ concept creates separate areas for a variety of activities while encouraging connections among guests, from the expansive bow to triple helm seating to the outdoor kitchen and U-shaped lounge aft with convertible rear-facing sunpad and extended swim platform.
400 SSC cabin accommodations offer amenities that are unprecedented in an open bow design. Three solid wood steps lead down to a fully molded cabin liner with woodgrain-finish flooring and 6’ 5” headroom, spacious, opening windows and overhead venting hatch. The 400 cabin provides a completely residential experience centered on the U-shaped Ultraleather® lounge with dual-height, high-gloss wood table that can accommodate friends for dinner or be lowered for sleeping. Berth legroom is easily revealed by raising the forward backrest. The aft cabin stateroom with privacy curtain features a permanent queen-size bed with memory foam mattress. The upholstered headboard with hideaway storage, available wall LaunchPort inductive charging system, two dual USB charging ports, available 32” LED/LCD HDTV with Blu-ray player and deep storage areas at the foot of the bed make this a perfect retreat.
24 drink holders throughout the bow and cockpit offer plenty of places to enjoy refreshments and park small belongings. Easy-access storage offers dedicated placement for your boating gear, from under seats to the portside lockers. Ten dual USB charging ports throughout give 20 places to keep your devices at the ready. Blue/white LED lighting throughout allows you to continue the mood, while optional underwater blue lights add distinctive style and appeal. Creating a multi-sensory underwater light show, the ‘Sound-to-Light’ upgrade with Wi-Fi control features full spectrum color choices that seamlessly sync to your music.
Formula’s offshore heritage is evident at the helm, where triple command seating offers chiseled support with ultimate comfort in mind. The sturdy composite dash features a Liquid Black floating panel showcasing dual Raymarine Axiom 12 GPS widescreen color chartplotters with upgrades to dual Axiom XL 16’s or XL 19’s. The 400 SSC also features Mercury® DTS with SmartCraft VesselViewTM, intuitive waterproof rocker switches, impressive digital switching, optional wireless iPadTM control and blue LED accent lighting. A lockable glove box safeguards your valuables while a padded mobile device station with dual USB charging port conveniently displays your screens. Quad outboards respond instantly to your control with electronic shift and throttle, Mercury® Joystick Piloting and impressive leather-wrapped, polished stainless tilt steering wheel.
The 400 SSC incorporates FAS3TECH® multi-step hull technology and a molded structural grid to deliver the swift, stable Formula performance that is world renowned. Break free in the newest addition to the Formula Crossover fleet, the Formula 400 Super Sport Crossover!
