Only 5 hours on newer engines! 105 MPH and held the record for the Long Beach to Catalina Ski Race for 8 years!!!

If you're looking for a wicked fast and beautiful offshore High Performance ride, look no further. The seller has owned this gorgeous Fountain since 1999 and it's won the Long Beach to Catalina race 4 times with a 2nd place once. This Fountain Held the Record for the Race for 8 years.

This Fountain is unique from other 42' Lightnings out there in several ways. A couple that really stand out are the controls on the helm and the shape of the hull. The throttle controls are on the right with the gear controls on the left, giving you more throttle control in rougher seas. And the hull does not have the typical step of many Lightnings which helps her track straight and true.

The Engines wear the Mercury Racing 900 SC Air cleaner and valve covers, they are made on the 557 CID Block and built solidly by a well known Southern California shop, and Dyno measured to 1050 hp. With the exception of the Blocks, cranks and rods, everything else in the engines is brand new. The Blocks, Cranks and rods are 5 years new, with about 40 hours of previous use, and the engines were put together and installed in 2013. The Seller has all receipts for engine work completed. Included in the engine build are Brodix-2 CNC Heads, and both engines are sitting under Mooneyham 10-71 Blowers. The mechanical excellence in the engine compartment is complimented exponentially by the Mercury Racing #6 outdrives.

She's been clocked at a top speed of 105 and will easily do 80 - 85mph plus at less than full throttle. She was built to use pump fuel, but always run on avgas.

If you're in the market for an excellent offshore racer, this Beautiful Fountain needs to be on your list.

The Aluminum Myco Trailer is in excellent condition and has new tires and Hydraulic over electric brakes, with new brake pads.

ConditionIn 2013, the engines were pulled for the opportunity to place the newer built engines in place. Before the engines were back in place, the stringers were refurbished and fully glassed. Fountain boats are notorious for a bit of stringer rot due to unfinished fiberglass over the end of the stringers. This issue has been resolved in this beauty. The Outdrives were rebuilt the same time as the engines were installed. She's been in the water twice since the engines were reinstalled with only about 5 hours of use. She was last in the water in June of 2014 and is always garaged.
