Speedboat No 1


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. No other boats 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 ordered fall 2005 by Rami Kivistö in Finland, inspired by Poker Runs America who had a full yellow 42 Lightning. We had the boat at the Stockholm boat show early 2006, and in spring 2006, a norwegian bought this boat. Since then, it has got much attention and is still without any "accidents".

This Fountain 42 Lightning was made with the biggest CE-approved MerCruisers of its time. Its supercharged Mercury Racing 600 SCI big block V8s fill up the engine compartment with "the right stuff". These are one of MerCuiser's best engines and utilize the 8,2 litre GM block, pumping out a computer controlled continious 600 prop shaft horsepower regardless of temperature, humidity barometric pressure etc. These engines propell this astonishing Vee to 92+ GPS miles per hour through Bravo XR drives and Hering 6-blade high rake stainless steel propellers. Exceptional idling with the latest engine management system which include sequential ignition and fuel injection optimized for the supercharged racing motor. These engines are also fresh water cooled and will last many years if taken well care of. Experience the real deep thunder and roar from the exhaust along with the whining sound of the twin screw 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!

This Fountain 42 Lightning has an aggressive color scheme with a combination of orange and blue through out. The cabin interior is no exception, using all over orange ultra leather! The cockpit is all orange with matching blue accents. Seats, seat legs, dashboard, instrumentation, cockpit carpeting, engines, saddle tanks, engine hatch graphics and seat back logos etc. are all matching to make this boat a unique orange masterpiece of a boat. And made to last.

This boat is all orange gel coat with blue metallic painted graphics. This is the popular "Shock Wve" graphics which is an original Fountain graphic in 2006. The colors are BLUE/SILVER/BLACK.

This boat runs an impressive 92+ GPS mph. / 80 knots. It is good to know that the same hull can handle a speed of 180 mph. Needless to say, the boat handles as on a railway track in 90 mph. The balance and rigidness of this boat is second to none. Buy you own.
