The ultimate long distance traveller!


For people who loves the oceans and to run fast, this Fountain 47 Lightning will rank high on the list of desired boats. This Fountain is the upgraded and new version of the very popular 47 Lightning. With a new cockpit lay out consisting of six stand up bolster seats with electric drop downs, it is build to run like what it really is, a pleasure-inspired race boat. It shares the the same hull as Fountain use in their "Cat Killer" world champion chip winning race boat.  Equipped with the biggest diesels for fast boats from Yanmar, this offshore machine will take on the waves in a manner few other boats can match. And the fuel efficiency that you would not think would be possible in a 47 foot 7 ton offshore machine. You will feel safe at any speed in this boat, as these boats feature a deep cockpit with lots of protection from the elements. Try it in the open ocean. Everybody are amazed by its unsurpassed sea-worthyness. The secret comes from its propulsion, consisting of two Twin Disc Arneson drives with Hering six-blade large diameter propellers. A stronger engine/drive configuration is difficult to imagine. Onboard this full size Vee, you have lots of space. A large cockpit and a huge cabin with a with vacuum flush head and shower in a enclosed room. It can accomodate 4 persons for weekend trip. With generator, heater and aircondition, it carries its passengers in great comfort. It is Fountain's "family sport boat". Or bring a lot of friends and have a lot of fun!


This Fountain 47 Lightning was outfitted with the largest diesels that were available for its time (and still is), coupled to Arneson surface drives. These two Yanmar 6LY3-ETP 480 hp. engines propel this astonishing Vee to 72+ GPS miles per hour. These engines are fresh water cooled and will last many years if taken well care of. For the diesel enthusiast, these beasts deliver a deep tone at idle, and growls like a monster accompanied by the whining sound of two huge turbos.

This Fountain 47 came to Finland early 2006 and was all white. Later the same year it was painted in full with a clean and contemporary grey base color along with purple and black graphics. The graphics on this boat strech the lines out to make the boat look as long as possible. The cabin interior is all light beige, using "Ultra Leather" which is a synthetic (for cleaning purposes) leather that resembles "nappa" / glove leather. Dashboard, instrumentation, throttles, cockpit carpeting, engine hatch graphics and seat back logos etc. are all matching to make this boat a unique boat.

This boat is all white gel coat with painted graphics. It has got custom graphics painted in Europe. The colors are WHITE/GREY/PURPLE/BLACK.

This diesel boat tops out at 72+ GPS mph. / 60 knots. With diesel engines, this boat has a cruising speed closer to its top speed compared to boats with gas power. For long distance trips, this is the ultimate offshore machine! With a total fuel capacity of 1150 litres, it is capable of crossing small oceans whenever you want.
