1997 Fountain Lightning  42

This is a very rare find with the tri engines. If you have a need for speed, this is the boat for you. With the triple Mercruisers, you will be one of the fastest and loudest on the water!!

This amazing vessel has been well taken care of. The engines have been custom painted so when you look at them from different angles they change colors.

The owner has installed electronic gauges that will show each engine's information at the touch of a button instead of looking all around the dash for a specific gauge. He has also added new foam decking and some custom paint that changes color in the sun.

Even though the boat is located in South Texas, the owner has not had it in Salt Water. But this is the perfect boat if you are looking for a vessel to take off shore or maybe the Poker Run.

If you are looking to get into the high performance lifestyle or ready for a bigger boat this vessel is for you!!

Information On Condition

For her age this vessel looks fantastic. The hull could use a buff and wax but no flaws.

The interior could have the carpets and vinyl cleaned, but again no tears or damage.

The cockpit vinyl seats have no damage and the engine compartment looks amazing.

Docs included showing each engine at 671 HP

Approximate boat location: Mcallen, Texas
