Default Quad Fountain, finished with action Pics

This 38 Fountain is the strongest center console Fountain to date. The acceleration is unbelievable. Cruising at 50 mph, put the throttle down and you better be holding on because if you are not you will be thrown backwards over the motors and into the water.
The purchase of this boat has exceeded all my wildest expectations. The team at the Aqua Toy Store in Fort Lauderdale are extremely professional and knowledgeable on the boats they sell. Any one that is looking for a Fountain owes it to themselves to contact them before buying a boat.

Going to the Factory was a real treat. The Aqua Toy Store coordinated my trip with Reggie Fountain so I was expected when I flew in on Tuesday. Everyone at the factory treated me like a King. They could not do enough for me. Reggie asked me, “ where are you staying” and I said, I did not make any hotel plans yet, he Said “ Fountain is paying for your hotel and we are going to make arrangements for you”.

I was catered to the whole time. If I was not going for a ride in my boat or touring the factory, I was taken to lunch or dinner by Alton Thornton of Fountain. If you guys do not know Alton, he is the one that has owned all the Hooter quad boats. He is a great guy that knows his product and is the Fountain sales rep for Florida.


Ok, back to the boat. I’m a very picky guy and looked over the whole boat and could not find anything that needed to be addressed. The workmanship is flawless. The boat sitting in the water looks very impressive. Pictures do not do it justice. I am not going to give any speed numbers until the racing props ordered by Fountain are installed on the boat. They should be installed next week. I will say that with the props that are installed now, the boat is very, very fast!

Awesome! i ran my 38 TE with trip 300's to KW and it ran great with 10 people on board and really rough conditions. I can only dream of having that boat with four 350's. Awesome!!!!!!! Congrats!

Congrats and nice lookin' rig!! Despite never having done biz w/ATS or owned a Fountain, your positive boating experience sums up how every new boat owner should be treated by their dealer and respective boat manufacturer. Bravo Aqua Toy Store & Fountain!!

I am interested in the speed numbers, Our quad engine 38 with 300 Verados is still 8 mph less than Reggie had originally stated. However, hopefully they got it right this time. Good Luck with the boat and keep us posted.
