Fountain - 38 LIGHTNING

Decades of Shock and Awe on the race course have come down to this: a dominating legacy slickly packaged as the 38 Lightning, an ultra-performance boat that has won numerous world and national championships.

Powerboat Magazine named it the 2007 Offshore Boat of the Year! Nowbelieve it or notnot only battle tested, but newly improved.

Start with Reggie Fountains legendary pad keel, notched transom, and Positive Lift hull. Add staggered engines to move the center of gravity down toward the keel where it does the most good.

Power it with twin Mercury 525s through Bravo I XR drives with Short Sport Masters and ITS gimbals and hit 96+ mph. Choose 700s with NXT1 gimbals and No. 6 uppers and lowers and you have a rocket sled exceeding 114 mph.
Remember Fountain hulls are extremely efficient this means less drag and incredible savings at the pump!

If your looking for the latest technology at the best value, look no furtherFountain is the only choice.
