2007 Fountain Mercury 38 Express Cruiser

Posted on by 0

Fountain Mercury has melded the performance moxie of an offshore racer with the creature comforts of a condo. Undoubtedly the fastest, most fuel efficient boat in its class, the 38 EC can reach top speeds in excess of 60 Knots with Mercury 525s. Scale back to twin Mercury 425 hp, 496 cu.in. engines and cruise long range at 43-plus knots while still topping out at 52 knots plus.

The cockpit has space and comfort to rival any wide-beam cruiser on the market today. At the helm, two side-by-side drop-down bolster seats put you and your companion in complete control. Opposite, a port-side lounge seat is a perfect spot to catch a few rays. The party moves aft with a large, wrap-around settee-seating six-with removable table and wet bar with ice maker.

Below decks, the 38EC, with its 10 ft. & 6 in. beam and 6 ft. & 4 in. headroom, includes a master stateroom with a double berth, dresser and a cedar-lined locker. Aft, there is a cabin sleeper with a stand-up head with VacuFlush toilet, sink and shower. The galley features a sink, microwave oven, and fridge/freezer.

The 38EC’s list of standard equipment is extensive. Combine this with an optional genset and AC/heat and you can enjoy boating year round. The 38 has Fountain Mercury’s revolutionary Twin Step Positive Lift hull with notched transom and a pad keel.
