A friend of mine went to Miami Boat Show to complete a pending order he had on a 38 Fountain and was told they had a 12% increase since the initial order was placed which would result in $36K increase. He took his check and said "no thanks"!! Seems like everytime they produce a new product like the 35 staggered or the 100 mph 38, their response is to raise prices. The good news is it reinforces the used fountain boat market!

That would be MISS Susan and that would make her HOT and AVAILABLE!

Send her a brief resume, job description and most importantly a picture of your boat

I call BS. If this guy really had a pending order/contract on a boat before the show the price would be held. If he was going to the show just to pick out colors or something and had a deposit like you say he did the price would be held.

If he just talked with his dealer before the show and no contract or deposits were taken and then he shows up at the show and there was a price increase how is that Fountains fault?

I had been talking losely to my Fountain dealer about possibly looking at a new boat for the 3 weeks leading up to the show. I was informed that there was going to be a price increase at the show like there is every year, nothing new.
