Overview

Dealer Insights

Fountain Mercury's explosive high-performance Lightning series is the end result of decades of supremacy on the world's race courses. There is no finer example of all-out competition than the 38 Lightning which has won multiple world and national championships on numerous occasions. Reggie Fountain's battle-tested pad keel, notched transom, Positive Lift hull, and staggered engines to move the center of gravity down low where it belongs. Put Mercury's twin 525's through Bravo I XR Drives with short Sport Masters and ITS gimbals and you'll be all over 95 MPH. Or, choose 700's with NXT1 gimbals and #6 uppers and lowers and you'll have a rocket ship exceeding 112 mph.

Description

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! Now - believe it or not - not only battle tested, but newly improved.

Start with Reggie Fountain`s 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 you`re looking for the latest technology at the best value, look no further - Fountain is the only choice.
