Description

Fountain Mercury's explosive new high-performance Lightning series is the end result of decades of supremacy on the world's race courses. There is no finer example of all-out competition than the 38 Lightning which has won multiple world and national championships on numerous occasions. Now new and improved, and you'd better believe that! Reggie Fountain's battle-tested pad keel, notched transom, Positive Lift hull, and now add staggered engines to move the center of gravity down low where it belongs. Put Mercury's twin 525's through Bravo I XR Drives with short Sport Masters and ITS gimbals and you'll be all over 95 MPH. Or, choose 700's with NXT1 gimbals and #6 uppers and lowers and you'll have a rocket ship exceeding 112 mph. Remember Fountain hulls are extremely efficient - this means less drag and incredible savings at the pump!
