Default Purchasing Fountain Powerboats ?

Email Recd today .....


Quote:
Hustler is currently in negotiations to purchase Fountain powerboats and all its assets. As of Oct. 5th, Fountain powerboats will go up for auction and no longer be doing business. Hustler Powerboats will move its operations to NC and re-build the Fountain and Baja Line to full capacity over the next 4 years and keep the Fountain Legacy intact as we feel it is a big part of Performance boat history and do not want to see it die off. We are dedicated to re-strengthening both Fountain and Baja, keeping the same look and feel with improved quality and workmanship. Over these last couple years, Hustler has been blessed with sales and is running strong and would like to give back to the boating community by saving these companies from being auctioned off piece by piece.



If you have any question please feel free to email me at [email protected]

I got the same thing today and I first thought Hustler was trying to buy it but when it said up for auction Oct 5th that it's old news. Either way I hope Fountain and the other companies can still survive.

See Powerboat 12/09 issue. Fountain was just acquired by Liberty Investments who previously acquired Donzi and Pro-Line. Reggie will remain as CEO.
