This boat ran in Florida the first years, and got a total make over at Fountain's factory in 2006. Later, the boat was sent over to Europe and had new engines installed. The new owner wanted a big boat for his family and low operating costs, and installed three brand new MerCruiser Cummins 320 diesels and Bravo XR drives. This set up worked so well that the present owner are in the market for an even larger Fountain/Cummins combo, which will be the 48 Express Cruiser with triple 500 Cummins.


This Fountain 47 Lightning is now outfitted with the largest diesel that are compatible with the Bravo outdrive. This ensures a very easy-to-service package along with the benefits of a fully functional drive set up with full trim and rudder angles. Also the propellers can be bought at every Mercury dealer. These engines propell this astonishing Vee to 74+ GPS miles per hour. These engines are also fresh water cooled and will last almost forever if taken well care of. These diesels give a deep growl along with the whining sound of three turbos.

The colors make it stand out from the others and looks best when you see it live.
