This boat has it all, looks, performance, and luxury all in one package. Be the envy of your friends and family at speeds of 60 mph plus in total comfort.  Triple Cummins 480's were replaced with new in 2012 and have just over 30 hours on them.  Arneson surface drives with custom propellers round out the drive package, with a bow thruster assisting to simplify docking.  Cockpit air conditioning is sure to keep you comfortable outside, and the luxury accommodations inside are up to par with many luxury yachts.




Re-Powered by NEW triple 480 hp, Cummins fuel-efficient diesel engines in 2012, the Fountain 48 Express Cruiser can cruise at an astonishing 45 mph while attaining one-plus mile per gallon. Open up the throttles and run up to 62 mph. Further, the 48 EC's 12-foot beam provides the perfect combination of smooth ride and stable platform. Accommodations of the 48 provides you with the luxury that you would expect from a world class yacht. Like all Fountains, this classic was born of the brutal world of offshore racing. It means simply that this one performs like a champ. Remember, this is the yacht that set a world record from Key West to Cancun, Mexico, dashing 405 miles in 8 hours and 36 minutes while running into a three to five foot head sea which was a quick day's cruise instead of the traditional overnight haul. While others are still chasing the moon, you could be sipping cocktails in its luminous thrall. You really need to see this boat!
