2002 Fountain 42 Lightning WANT TO GET NOTICED ? WANT THE BEST ? WANT FAST ?THIS IS IT !CLEANEST FOUNTAIN ON THE MARKET !MAY TAKE PARTIAL HOT ROD TRADE !The Fountain 42’ Lightning is well-known to people who know performance boats and boat racing. In fact, the 42 Fountain held the V-bottom speed record at 140mph for awhile. This boat is equipped with the durable 550 hp Mercury Racing HP 575 SCI engines that will push her hard enough to rock your world. ?Reggie Fountain’s racing experience is evident everywhere in the design of this boat. With an 8’6” beam, staggered engines bring the props closer together and keep the engine weight, and therefore the center of gravity, down along the keel, which helps the boats stability and handling. With a dry weight of 9400 pounds, this boat is built for speed.?Her stepped hull provides just the right amount of lift without losing its grip while making tight turns. When she takes some air, she stays level while providing a nice cushioned landing. This 42’ Lightning’s handling is not only rock solid, but incredibly responsive. The steering system is most impressive. Even in tight turns at 60mph, the boat tracks extremely well. There is no sliding or jumping in high-speed turns.?Even though the builders focus was on performance, this boat certainly will not disappoint you in the comfort and features department. Her cockpit is very attractive, with high-quality leather and custom embroidery, and is also very functional. The bolster seats have electrically activated drop out seat bottoms, making it easy to switch when an adjustment is needed from sitting to standing. Grab rails are in all of the right places for maximum safety.?
