Fountain 42 Lightning

GENERAL INFO
For the professional powerboater, the Fountain 42 is one of the ultimate choises in speed boats. If you were a racer, you would choose the Fountain 42 canopied race boat to keep up with all the others who also have the Fountain 42 hull... This boat is a direct derivative of the worlds fastest V-bottom which ran 182 mph on the GPS in 2004, and is still the worlds fastes pass in a V-bottom boat. No other powerboats in the world have been subject to modification to a greater extent as the legendary 42 Lightning hull.  Discriminating performance and handling with a similar appearance... You will feel safe at any speed in this boat. Try it in the open ocean. Everybody are amazed by its unsurpassed sea-worthyness. The 42 Lightning has a "staggered" engine configuration and the latest in Vee bottom design & technology. Everything adopted from Fountain's race series.

The boat was delivered in 2004 in Europe.

ENGINES
This Fountain 42 Lightning was made with supercharged Mercury Racing 575 SCI big block V8s. These engines utilize the 8,2 litre GM block and propell this astonishing Vee to 88+ GPS miles per hour through Bravo XR drives and 5-blade high rake stainless steel propellers. Experience the real deep thunder and roar from the exhaust along with the whining sound of the compressors of these full size V8s or close the silent choise exhaust for a quiet humming to you neighbour's satisfaction. Look into the engine compartment and view these blue and chrome beasts! Priceless!

COLORS
This Fountain 42 Lightning has an agressive yet elegant color scheme with a combination of white, yellow and blue through out. The cockpit and cabin are also matching. The cockpit is white with matching blue and yellow accents.

This boat has also a matching dashboard!!
