2007 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.
The boat is immaculately maintained, having received BRAND NEW (not rebuilt) complete long blocks 25 hours ago. In addition to the long blocks, the headers and tail pipes are all new, and the drives & transmissions were all gone through in detail at the time of the engine replacements. Accessories were also addressed, including starters, alternators, water pumps, belts and hoses. This boat is a freshly re-powered machine, ready to go!
The boat was painted by Mitcher T prior to the current owner taking possession, and the dash was updated to receive a Garmin plotter, moving the Mercury Race View to the port side panel.
Upgrades include Hering Propellers, vaccu-flush head with pump-out, turn-down exhaust for quite marina operation, and a bow thruster by Florida Bow Thrusters to make docking the staggered 42 a breeze!
The boat shows a total of 324 hours. The starboard engine had the computer replaced by Mercury at about 155 hours, and the owner has the computer as well as all of the engine and drive work paperwork. Fresh engines only have about 25 hours!
