In the entire fleet of Fountain Mercury trophy-winning boats, none is more dedicated to the art and science of fishing than the brawny, hell-for-leather 38 Center Console. This is the pro fisherman's fish boat. Race proven and tournament tested, the Super Ventilated Positive Lift hull will beat the competition every time.
What Makes this Fountain Unique
The owner of the Fountain is the original owner. He loves boats and owns many. He is a great ambassador for the Fountain brand as he has owned several - this is his 3rd Fountain 38. 4-Play has been living in Anacortes, Washington, and she doesn't get used often enough because of his other boats. She has low hours - only 100.
The information about the boat running 100 mph is this - with a temporary set up including custom props, Dave Bush parts and running aviation fuel for best performance, 4-Play ran 100 mph in Florida about 6 years ago. Afterwards the engines were de-tuned and the tanks went back to regular gasoline for reliability.
The seller's prior Fountain 38 would run regularly the 78 miles between Grand Cayman and Little Cayman and was excellent in any seas.
The boat was recently relocated to St. Augustine to offer for sale on the east coast.
