The Fountain 35 Lightning features one of the smallest hulls designed by the company and weighs only 9500 lbs dry. However, despite its relatively compact dimensions, the Fountain 35 Lightning has all it needs to deliver plenty of fun on the water.

At the heart of the boat sit twin staggered Mercury 525 EFI W/ Bravo 1-XR/SSM engines which can propel you to a maximum speed of more than 100 mph. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the maximum cruising range is rated at 166 miles at 90% capacity.

The standard equipment offered by the Fountain 35 Lightning includes bilge blowers, bilge pumps, pop-up bow lights, a cabin, cockpit billet accent, fresh water flush, a Sirius satellite radio and a wraparound windshield.

The Cold War may be over, but things just got a whole lot hotter with the introduction of the all new Fountain Mercury 35 Lightning.

If anybody ever packaged a speeding bullet and called it a boat, this is it. It’s a slightly scaled down version of the Lightning hulls that have conquered the world of offshore racing – complete with all the high tech bells and whistles. Take for instance our staggered engine configuration, an all new high performance cockpit with carbon fiber dash and a newly designed cabin underneath. “This boat,” Reggie Fountain says, “is a sneak attack. It’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
