2006 Fountain 42 Lightning

Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

$369,000

This is simply the fastest privately owned 42 Lightning built by the legendary Fountain Powerboat Factory, topping out at an eye watering 143 miles per hour!

This is a fully loaded, 100% FRESHWATER, 42 Lightning with staggered 1350 Sterling engines. 

Starting with the engines, they are 100% Sterling, not knock-offs or Sterlings rebuild by another builder.  These are 565CID 1350 supercharged big-blocks.  Complete engine specifications and build sheets, with dyno reports, are available.  True to the top shelf work at Sterling, the engines are dressed to match the exterior graphics.

#6 Speed-masters are connected to the water through 5-blade Herring propellers.

The boat has a gorgeous custom paint job by Richie Rich, brand new interior, shore power and will run at a blistering 140+ miles per hour with brutal acceleration.

The boat sits on a trick tandem-dual Myco trailer, with electric over hydraulic brakes and a spare tire.

The 42 Lightning hull is the winningest v-bottom hull on offshore racing history, winning more championship, and holding more speed records that all of the other manufactures combined.  The 42 is simply the ultimate offshore v-bottom to hit the water.

This is not a boat for the meek.  This professionally maintained, gorgeous freshwater missile will out-run and out-perform any pleasure v-bottom on the water.

This boat was featured as a cover in Hot Boat Magazine, and in feature article Forbes Magazine.

Manufacturer Provided Description
Fountain Mercury’s 42 Lightning has won more races than any other V-bottom in history and currently holds the UIM/APBA/SBI World Speed Record at 171.883 mph. The staggered engine set-up brings the propellers closer together, keeping the center of gravity down low, along the keel, where it works best. With Mercury 525 EFI engines, the 42 Lightning can hit speeds approaching 85mph. Raise the bar with the Mercury 1075s and expect speeds in excess of 125mph. The spacious cabin design features an enclosed head, overnight sleeping accommodations, and a galley with an integrated cooler and pressurized sink. Extras include an integrated anchor locker with anchor, drop-down bolster seats, a full-frame wraparound windshield and an optional Bimini top with front and side enclosures.
