Having owned a 35 Fountain classic, I feel they are very solid boats with a very small step that can be driven very hard and turned hard (properly of course) without incident. On the other hand, I've see quite a few 32 Sunsation accident reports the past few summers. They either attract a lot of unexperienced drivers or they swap ends easily or both. They are quick hulls though.

There you go, from the horses mouth. I too would go with a 35 Fountain. I have been in a 32 (not a newer one) but have never been in a 35 Fountain. But I like them.

You surprise me Brian. On 1 hand you preach the lanyard feature, now you want to try to sell a boat that runs 92mph to someone that claims they have no experience with speed boats.

Well, as long as he wears his lanyard

I will say that a 92mph boat is way too much for someone with little or no performance experience. I think everyone here (for the most part) have owned cruisers, then a 40mph boat, then a 60ish then 70 or 80 & so on.
Seat time my friends, seat time...........

I'll throw in the Tres Martin Performance Boat School on this particular sale as well. I don't think it gets better than that; but if that's not enough; we'll come up with something additional.

Active Thunder will not throw you the keys with a "Have Fun!"
We take care of our family of owners. You can guarantee that.

(As for the CA incident, we couldn't exactly put his lanyard on for him.)
