Used 2001 Fountain Fever 125 miles
Fort Myers, FL
Just from the looks of her you know the 38 Fountain is a fast boat. With this one owner 38 Fever you have updated power that is barely broken in. She comes with twin Mercury Racing 525 EFI's that were installed in late 2009. The cockpit features an aft bench seat large enough for three or four people, and two bolster style seats for the driver and passenger, so they’ll always be locked in when taking tight turns and traveling at speeds approaching 80 MPH. The cabin has wraparound seating with an ultra-leather sofa and a V-berth forward with a privacy curtain so up to four people can enjoy the overnight stay. There’s a sink with pressurized water below, as well as a porta-potti.Reggie Fountain builds boats, fast boats. Since early in his racing days, Reggie has constantly worked towards attaining and improving on the fastest V-hull design out there. This is all very apparent in Reggie’s 38 Fever.The 38 Fever is safe and comfortable as well as fast. The eight and a half foot beam remains stable when boarding and walking around. She carries a fuel capacity of 190 gallons. The feel of speed is immediate on these boats, and you definitely feel the force as you add throttle. The advantages of Reggie’s hull design become apparent when you are moving at top speed and run through performance turns without the dreaded skip, slide, or chine walking many others give at lower speeds.The cockpit is protected by a full framed wraparound windshield that does not block the view of the driver. All controls are easy to reach at the helm. The three-spoke wheel presents minimal obstruction, and racing influenced the placement of the Gaffrig instruments. The throttle and drive controls are located on the left. Trim tabs and drive position is indicated with mechanical indicators which are easier to read when running hard. There is a digital depth gauge, Azimuth electronic compass and fireboy system for safety.In addition, the steering is very responsive thanks to the hydraulic system. The bolsters have bottom cushions that are power driven and are very comfortable for long-range trips. The seats drop away for the fast runs and safely hold you in position, even in the tightest turns. When you are cruising, you can easily bring the seat up for a comfortable ride. The ultra leather seating continues with a bench behind the driver and companion seat. Here three more people can rest in luxury and comfort. Even after an hour of hard riding the crew will be comfortable.Using the power hatch lift, you will find all the essential checkpoints on the power plant easy to reach. With the engine hatch closed, the cover makes a comfortable padded area to soak up the sun. The pad also is good to your feet when you are coming back aboard. Getting aboard is simple using the integrated swim platform.The powertrain was replaced in late 2009. Mercury Racing 525 EFI's are more economical than the original power, very important today. New exhausts give a throaty growl. 4 blade props give a lot of bite. Big K-planes keep you running flat and level. That's a must at 75 MPH.Accommodations below are ample for two people overnighting, yet can handle up to four thanks to a privacy curtain for some separation. A galley with pressurized water; separate head with sink and porta-potti and a built-in ice chest make the long days on the water much more inviting. The purple and white interior is good looking. There is a Kenwood stereo system. If you want a boat that will grab everyone’s attention from the moment you’re cranked up to the seconds it takes to become a fuzzy image on the horizon to those watching, be sure to check out this Fountain 38 Fever. One owner, dry stored, new power, classic good looks. This boat just might be for you! The owner will consider offers. Trailers are available if needed.
