The comforts of a luxury condo. The agility of a sports car. You can`t go wrong.

Reggie Fountain has built a career by improving on success. World champion offshore racer; world class visionary. Reggie`s résumé is the envy of yacht builders everywhere. The 38EC is proof!

But, this is no warmed-over rehash. It has been completely revamped, updated, made brand new again?with all of the attributes that made the original a favorite of adventuresome boaters. Got a yen to visit out-of-the way ports of call? Have a need to do it in grand style? Here`s your boat.

This masterpiece of design and engineering begins with Fountain`s legendary stepped hull. Born on the offshore race course. Built to power through nasty seas at high speed in safety and comfort. Now get the new and improved version with step locations reconfigured to give you an even smoother ride. An expanded chine width and reduced deadrise add lateral stability while opening up the interior space.

Add creature comforts that would please a princess. You`ve got one fantastic package. With twin Mercury HOs, you can expect 60-plus mph. Try that in some wannabe.

It is, all things said, one sweet package. From Fountain. Who else?
