2008 Fountain 42 Lightning Mercury Racing 700SCi #6
The Fountain 42 Lightning is the ultimate performance offshore sport boat in the Fountain line- up. The 42 was simply the fastest, smoothest, safest and best handling Fountain built, and it has all of the championships and speed records to prove it.
Fountain made the decision immediately upon the release of the Mercury Racing 700SCi that it would upgrade to the #6 speed-master drive on the NTX transom assembly to make the performance mirror that of their offshore dominating race boats.
Since the roll-out of the 700SCi, the 42 with twin 700's has been one of the most sought after Fountains of all time, running at an astounding 103-105 miles per hour right out of the box.
This 42 has been meticulously maintained, and only has 80 hours on NEW Mercury Long-Blocks. the drives and the transmissions were also gone through on a "cost is no object" basis, including new gears and bearings, and brand new Mercury Racing 6-blade stainless propellers.
Total hours on the boat are 420.
The windshield has been re-powder-coated blue since the feature photo was taken.
In 2008, the 42 received an updated cabin configuration that was a significant departure from the original style cabins, and has been a much desired feature in the used market.
The drives feature vent-tubes to allow the boat to pop on plane with the high performance stainless propellers.
The trailer is included on this low hour, fresh-water boat that is located in Canada presently.
