Default 47 Fountain any info????

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2007-Fountai...wer_Motorboats

Any one know anything about this? Looks like it might have taken on water at some point?? looking to buy, fix up, and re-sell. What would it realistically be worth fixed up nice and with a custom paint job?

I can only image this boat needs alot of TLC, and might be dog with only a pair of 700"s
This might be a better LOTO boat for you to consider,,,,

Market for 47's in general is very soft. That boat looks like it had gone under. 700's and #6's won't be cheap to fix up. Speed wise, probably comparable to a trip 525 boat. Yes, less HP, but also missing the weight of another engine / drive package and staggered motors. TLC is an understatement. Look closely at the pics, lots of evidence of neglect there.

It is defiantly rough can probably count on motor & drive work/rebuild... unless it sat outside with the hatches open, it probably did take a dive. Figured with its size it would have a small market place.

I agree, the dirt on the tops of the engines shows it went under, not to mention how dirty that bilge is for a 2009. Gen is non working, they don't live when they get wet.


Still......I have not seen one with only 2 700s, but this same year with stag 850/1075 twins sells in the 275 range. Doesn't take a lot to get 850 out of a 700sci. What a great boat to buy in the fall

Those #6 drives and transmissions make up for the weight difference. Surface drives get some speed over what you have. I agree that it is a 90mph boat with this set up most likely. The 1075 twin 47 is rumored to hit 115mph

Other than a dirty bilge I am not seeing signs the boat got wet. 260 Hours it didn't spend that much time in the shop. That's my two cents, If I was interested I would make the trip to put my hands on the boat. Probably one of the last 47"s that came out under Reggie's control. Good color, AC/Gen, new style interior still financeable.....I see the glass half full

175 for old cockpit and cabin interior? Not too mention homemade huge power, sorry I would take the 2009 and not have to live in my bilge

Look close at those engines, they have dirt all the way up to the tops. Superchargers have a coating that could only come from dirty water, unless the hatches were left open for about 2 years.

For the year, I would assume it sunk as well. But if it sunk freshwater the price is reflective of it and it is not a big deal. I think that boat pulls low 200s mint
