1997 Fountain 42 Lightening Dealer Ship

“THE NEED FOR SPEED“ If you want to experience what it feels like to go 100 MPH on the water, this is your next boat. Her engines were recently refreshed. Even though this exceptional vessel was built in 1996, it appears as new! It has always been kept under cover and mostly on it’s MYCO Trailer in a privately owned warehouse. This vessel will cruise comfortably at 70 MPH. The trailer has had all brakes modified to disc brakes with electric/hydraulic controls to ensure safe handling while towing. Once you see her, you will want her to be your baby!! 

United Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Galati Yacht Sales. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel
