General Details

The 35 Lighting exhibits outstanding handling characteristics. Her mannerisms are predictable and she provides the confidence to take on more speed and rougher waters. I was impressed with how the boat could virtually turn on a dime at over 50 mph with no loose feeling like you get with some ventilated hulls. The years of research and development have truly paid off! I liked how the boat required very little attention once on plane. Most hulls require constant adjustment of the drives and tabs to get the perfect ride angle at various speeds. I have found that Fountain boats are almost a 'set and forget' style of driving. Even while planing, they have an exceptional line of site over the bow.

There is more to this boat than just cardiac arrest speed. She also has a well thought out cockpit and cabin. The size of the cockpit is the same as her big brothers, the 38 and 42 Lighting models. Lay out is typical with a wide bench seat aft and separate helm seats with the companionway down the center. As always with the Fountain sport boats, electric drop bolster seats provide the security you need when pushing the throttles. The Fountain helm is also distinctive, with lefty throttles and shifters. Drive and trim switches join the controls on the left and are complimented by the Gaffrig gauges. The left-handed set-up was awkward for me, especially at 90 + mph, but I'm sure you can get used to it.

The cockpit features two bolster seats for the driver and passenger and an aft bench seat large enough for four. When you feel like taking the sun the motorized engine hatch doubles as a sun pad. And when you want to crank up the tunes there are four marine speakers for the AM/FM stereo with CD player. The helm offers a good line of sight in all directions, and the wraparound windshield helps cut down on the wind and spray. Down below the cabin offers overnight accommodations for four adults with dual ultra leather bench seats and a V-berth with privacy curtain. The galley comes complete with refrigerator and sink with pressurized water system.
