Do You Feel the Need for Speed???

If you are feeling a need for speed, this is the vessel for you!
Fountain Powerboats, Inc., is one of the premier designers and manufacturers of ultra high-performance speed boats, sport cruisers, sport boats, and sport fishing boats. However, the company is no ordinary recreational powerboat manufacturer. As Ferrari and Lamborghini are to the automotive world, so Fountain is to the world of powerboats.
The 42 Lightning is the most illustrious race boat in history, winning more world and national championships than any other V-bottom in world history. It shattered the world speed record eight times with the fastest two-way average of 171.883 mph. It has done more than just win, it has totally dominated race courses over the past two decades.
Here is 42 feet of luxurious splendor built upon Reggie Fountain's revolutionary Positive Lift hull. The Positive Lift, developed in 1992, is a new type of boat bottom that increased acceleration, improved handling and cornering agility, and reduced consumption of fuel. All of the exclusive design features of the 42 Lightning reflect Fountain's wildly successful racing career.
For the sun worshipers the upholstered sun deck over the engine hatch is large enough to tan 4 people with access to the cabin a few steps away to easily refresh your beverages as needed.
At the helm console there is excellent visibility 360 degrees around the vessel and plenty of information on display to know the engine and trim status at a glance, with fuel psi and out-drive temperature added as a factory upgrade.
With all the options and upgrades the original owner purchased from the factory and the current owners maintenance skills truly make this boat an exceptional value.

Trailer has now been rebuilt with new brakes, and a new brake system installed to the second axle. Rotors, brake lines, leaf springs and wheel bearings all replaced.
State inspection sticker valid through April 2016.

ConditionJust about all the gel coat has been well protected and is flawless with just a few exceptions, there is one small chip above the bump rail next to the starboard bilge blower exhaust port.
There is also some gel chips in the red at the bow port and stbd. due to anchor retrieval.
There are some scratches in the blue graphics on the fore-deck port side just forward of the windshield.
The out-drives are showing thin paint in certain areas
There is one small tear in the upholstery on the sun deck and no other blemishes either in the cockpit or interior and very little signs of wear.
All in all this boat is in exceptional condition considering its age and use.
