I don't know how much. I got the pics from american performance marines website. Its been up on there for a while. I guess you can give them a call to find out.
I agree though. This isn't the boat i would buy if looking for a sport fish.
Gunwale seems to be at the right height.
You want to be able to lock your knees under it.
If its too high you can't do that.
But i agree, i wouldn't be spending that $ on a fountain fishing boat. Rather have a Viking open, with some beam.
Then again, after a closer look, i don't like the low sheer line. And it seems the cockpit is just extended over the swimplatfrom.
Too far outta their market.

With great power, comes great responsibility.
Did you forget to put the plug in? Oh, nevermind, it's a Fountain!!!!
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!
Needs more beam. A day of trolling in a 4 foot slop will have the boat rocking and rolling. It is an interesting concept, that could develop into something decent.
As a sport fisherman, I would look for beam, and accomodations. I would have to assume that this boat gets pretty tight down below, where as the viking open has an 17 foot beam and 2 huge staterooms with the possibility of a third bunk room. All that comes from beam. And she cruises at 36 knots
But, I agree with the beam. Maybe it'll come in handy when shark fishing.....a little more chum bait for the fishies! Especially if you're up in the tuna tower..
All good points but the Fountain will be 20 mph faster that all the competition!
I'd take the Viking in rough water any day!!
