No Bias opinion here
I won't knock the Fountain at all. It's a great boat obviously. We looked at many and I can only tell you the things we liked about the Nordic.
-The Nordic 28 is quite a bit larger than the Fountain 29
-The Fountain looks somewhat dated, inside and out
-The Nordic lines are (in my opinion) are second to none
-Fit and finish is great in both, again the Nordic is just more up to date
-Cabin room is very large on the Nordic
-Same power performance is pretty equal
-Fountain probably handles the big water better with the Nordic being more of a large lake boat
It's all what fits your needs I suppose.
Any questions, just drop me an e-mail.
