  • About Formula Boats
  • THE FORMULA BOATS DIFFERENCE

    Thunderbird's tradition of excellence continues to be the hallmark of each Formula boat. Victor B. Porter had been producing powerboats for almost twenty years when he and other family members acquired Thunderbird in 1976. Over the past twenty-five years the Porter family has concentrated on producing the highest quality product possible, complemented fully by responsive, customer-oriented service.


    Thunderbird maintains the highest manufacturing standards for you.

    Formula Guard, our Five-Year Limited Protection Plan, guarantees long term satisfaction.

    * Each Formula boat is protected by a combination of original manufacturers' warranties and supplemental product protection, which provides comprehensive coverage for a minimum of five years from the boat's original purchase date. In general, Formula boats and the boat's major component manufacturers (engines, transmissions, generator) administer warranty for the first year of ownership. Thereafter, a supplemental product protection plan - Formula Guard - takes over, providing extended coverage for many factory-installed accessories and components, including the major items noted above.

    * All Formula boats meet or exceed Association safety-based certification.
    * Other manufacturers may indicate membership, yet not qualify all their boats for certification.

    * Adams keeps Formula boats on the cutting edge of technical expertise.
