(LOCATION: St. Petersburg FL) This lightly used 42 Fountain Lightning is an affordable introduction to high performance boating. This beauty has been dry stored over its lifetime, professionally maintained, and features totally rebuilt engines including new heads and blocks with only 46 hours.

The white hull, custom graphics, and white interior make her stand out in any marina. The purple cockpit carpet, twin bolster seats forward, and rear bench seat provide style and comfort. The padded sun deck opens to reveal the pair of staggered 502 Mercruiser engines. An integrated swim platform has white boarding ladder. A full purple cockpit cover maintains her good looks when not in use.

Beneath the extended foredeck is a comfortable cabin with forward v-berth, wraparound leather seating, and carpeted deck. The galley features Norcold refrigerator, microwave oven, and stainless steel sink. The enclosed head compartment includes a mirrored vanity with sink and new VacuFlush head. There is ample room for relaxing and entertaining.

Never Enough is powered by twin 500-hp Mercruiser 502 normally aspirated engines and Bravo One outdrives. Engines were rebuilt in 2014 from the bottom up and have only 46 hours since rebuild. She is equipped with silent choice exhaust, power steering, hydraulic trim tabs, and automatic fire suppression. The helm is equipped with a new Garmin 7608xsv GPS map, Raytheon SL70 Pathfinder radar, Azimuth 1000 compass, and VHF marine radio. This 42 Lightning is a great looking Fountain with high performance, is professionally maintained, and affordably priced. Call now to schedule a showing.


Fountain's race-proven 42' Lightning, with double stepped hull, holds the current V-bottom world speed record at 143.946 mph. Staggered engines bring the props closer together and keep the center of gravity down along the keel, where it works best. Preferred power is twin 502 Mercury's (80+ mph).
