Fountain 38 Sportfish Cruiser

2006 • 38' (11.58 m) • Power

$135,000 USD

AMAZING LOOKING Fountain! The gelcoat has tremendous shine and the interior is stunning. Plus, the prior owner just invested close to $40,000 in mechanical upgrades and servicing including:

  • New Risers
  • New Manifolds
  • New Hoses
  • New Hose Clamps
  • New Engine Mounts
  • New Magnum Transom Assemblies

This one also has a other great features including:

  • Simrad color multifunction display unit
  • Simrad 6KW open array radar
  • Simrad auto-pilot (display burnt)
  • Air Conditioning
  • Battery Charger
  • Flat screen television
  • Windlass Anchor System
  • Docking Lights

Her generator has been removed. Her air conditioning can be powered with shore power or a portable genset.

Only 470 engine hours showing on the meters!

She has one of the best conditioned interiors that I have seen in quite some time.

The only items that we are aware of that are not working include the bow thruster and the LCD for the autopilot. (The autopilot still functions, just the numeric heading readout cannot be displayed.) We can have a new thruster installed for less than $2k.

We took this on trade towards a 42' center console with quad engines. These models are highly sought after as the ride is supposed to be superior to any other 38 footer. I am also told the inboard versions run better than the outboard versions due to their center of gravity.

NADA value, before accounting for thousands of dollars worth of options that this one has, shows $140,550 for average condition and $163,700 for high condition. This one certainly falls in the high category, given her appearance, low hours, and dry kept history. With the almost $40k just spent, this one represents the best deal on the Fountain market.

Hurry, she will not last long at this deal.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Fountain 38 Sportfish Cruiser was developed to meet the growing needs of fishermen to have a large express fishing boat with overnight capabilities, lots of fishing room and the performance of a triple engine center console. Fishability ranked high on our customers wish list so we equipped this boat with a walkthrough transom door, two rear 30 gallon transom livewells, a large bait station with storage drawers underneath, icemaker, two large fish boxes with 500 qt. total capacity and an optional fighting chair. The problem many fishermen face today is how to get to where the big ones are biting in a reasonable amount of time while burning a minimum amount of fuel. The 38SFC is the solution. Powered with your choice of diesel or gas engines the 38 SFC is undoubtedly the fastest, most fuel-efficient boat in its class. Twin Mercury 425hp, 496 engines power the 38 to top speeds up to 64 mph with a long range cruise speed of 50+ mph. Fuel-efficient twin Yanmar 310hp diesel engines provide added dependability and a top speed of 49 mph with an extended range cruising speed up to 45 mph. Get an incredible 2 mpg while cruising at speeds in excess of 40 mph.

Engine Notes

Yanmar diesel also available.
