Fountain - 48 EXPRESS CRUISER

High on every yachtsman’s wish list is a magic carpet that can take you from the humdrum to Heaven. A magnificent yacht with all the luxurious comforts of a Palm Beach condo and the feisty spirit of a Formula One race car. Til now, it was a pipe dream. With the incredible Fountain 48 Express Cruiser, it is a dream come true.

Imagine, if you will, a pleasure palace powered by two 480 Cummins diesels. It will top out at 51 and cruise at 42 getting 1.7 mpg. And, if you fancy the punch of gas, the 48EC powered by three MerCruiser 525s and Bravo III XR drives will still let you cruise at 50 and then top out at searing 63-mph.

Wait! It gets better. With triple 480 hp diesel engines it will allow you to cruise…cruise, mind you…at 50-mph—while barely sipping fuel: a little over one mile per gallon. Advance the throttles and power out to the islands at 63-mph.
Power and speed aren’t the only stories: the 48’s 12-foot beam gives you the perfect combination of smooth ride and stable comfort. Remember, this yacht’s heritage comes from the brutal world of offshore racing and Reggie Fountain’s many championships. That’s why he designed it the way he did.

The master stateroom has a pedestal berth flanked by matching couches. The bathroom offers VacuFlush MSD, shower, molded Corian sink, and lots of stowage for towels and accessories. It is completely private. There also is a cedar-lined hanging locker. The master also has a full entertainment center with flat-screen TV, CD, and DVD player.

Guests also are cosseted in luxury in an aft cabin of their own with double berth and bedside table. There is yet another flat-screen TV.
