Cigarette just don't sell as many boats but they are a production boat. Fountains are also all hand built.
Fanatic,
I have owned a Fountain and loved the boat. I also like the new Fountains and have nothing bad to say about them. However, as far as rigging, quality, details and overall construction ,Fountain is not in the same zip code as Cigarette.They can,t be because of how many they build. Still, it is a very nice boat for the general public, and works for alot of people.

I agree...Fountain needs to spend about $20K more worth of time on the fit and finish.

Not true. I know two people that were Fountain dealers and they had production boats on their lot with standard factory graphics, accessories and power. I am not saying you can't buy a high quality production boat (look at formula), but there is a difference.

With Cig you design the paint, options, power etc... I know Fountain has done some one off boats, but most of their boats come straight off the production line and go to a dealer and not a buyer or dealer who designed the boat. I bought my Cig from a dealer, but the dealership designed the graphics, picked out the accessories power etc...
