The design of the legendary 233 Formula hasn’t changed much however the structural integrity has. The original Formula’s were built for speed with stern-drives however today’s owners demand greater strength, more deck space and twin engine fit-ups. Other enhancements include a new top-side, wider gunnels, dive-door and one-piece helm capable of holding a 16-inch screen.
There’s no debating the blue-water credentials of the Offshore, with the time-honored 22-degree hull and flared bow. The factory has made a number of changes including an extended keel-line to where the pod used to end, giving the boat 6.20m length as well as buoyancy in the rear where it’s needed for modern four-stroke engines and twin fit-ups.
The 565 is an excellent all-rounder. It’s an ideal size for towing and launching with the safety and strength of Edencraft’s larger models. The 565 hull has a long history and excellent reputation for rough water performance. The hull is also recognised as one of the original outboard-powered offshore mono-hulls – and one of the best riding hulls for its size.
“Carbon-fibre wave-breaker, twin outboards and a rockin’ sound system – sign me up, baby!”
“There’s no debating the blue-water credentials of the Edencraft Offshore, with the time- honoured 22-degree hull and flared bow.”
“The twins offer more stability and agility in turns, not to mention the safety benefits.”
“The first thing you notice is the boat’s agility, and in this respect it leaves some of its competitors for dead.”
