    Vessel Walkthrough

    This boat is a superb example of the iconic Fountain 38 Lightning. The hull is hand laid composite with multi-directional fiberglass, high density coring and vinylester resin. The hull and deck are screwed and sealed together with heavy-duty marine sealant/ adhesive. This vessel is equipped with the reliable HP525/Bravo 1 XR SSM/ITS drive combo and will push the boat to nearly 100 mph. From the swim platform with integrated boarding ladder, moving forward are the hydraulic engine hatches upholstered in a custom cream/sand color. This color combination is carried through the cockpit and interior and is as classy as it is striking. The three place bench seat covers the battery switches and fuses. The side by side bolsters feature electrically controlled seat pans.
