Dealer Insights

This is simply the fastest privately owned 42 Lightning built by the legendary Fountain Powerboat Factory, topping out at an eye watering 143 miles per hour!

This is a fully loaded, 100% FRESHWATER, 42 Lightning with staggered 1350 Sterling engines.

Starting with the engines, they are 100% Sterling, not knock-offs or Sterlings rebuild by another builder. These are 565CID 1350 supercharged big-blocks. Complete engine specifications and build sheets, with dyno reports, are available. True to the top shelf work at Sterling, the engines are dressed to match the exterior graphics.

#6 Speed-masters are connected to the water through 5-blade Herring propellers.

The boat has a gorgeous custom paint job by Richie Rich, brand new interior, shore power and will run at a blistering 140+ miles per hour with brutal acceleration.

The boat sits on a trick tandem-dual Myco trailer with drive guard, and tool box.

The 42 Lightning hull is the winningest v-bottom hull on offshore racing history, winning more championship, and holding more speed records that all of the other manufactures combined. The 42 is simply the ultimate offshore v-bottom to hit the water.

This is not a boat for the meek. This professionally maintained, out-run and out-perform any pleasure v-bottom on the water.

This boat was featured as a cover in Hot Boat Magazine, and in THE TOP-KICK TRUCK IS NOT PART OF THE PACKAGE.
