Default 42' Fountain Executioner - anyone have any info?

I also posted this in the Fountain forum (I am sorry if anyone read this there too) but if anyone can share any information about this boat, I would truly appreciate it. Just trying to get as much information about it as possible.

I read the story about the 47' Lightning and now I have the butterflies in my stomach.

Thanks in advance for the help. It is greatly appreciated.

Shogren is a good dealer to do business with. Just like any major purchase, ask alot of questions and if it doesn't feel right, WALK AWAY !!! Always trust your gut !!!

Shogren will give you the straight scoop. Also, that boat only has 112hrs and unless it was abused and not maintained, it should be fine.

Got my Formula from Shogren last year. Straight up, no B.S. and a pleasure to do business with.

You will be fine doing business with them.

Thumbs up

Charlene,

We will see you when you get here.

There are a few good surveyors in Chicago and we recommend that all customers pay a licensed surveyor to inspect a boat before they buy whether here, another dealer or private party. The typical cost is 14-16 per ft and compression test or leak downs are usually additional.

Regards,

Team Shogren

I recommend it highly! We enjoy ours immensly. Great ride and speed. Just a little tricky to dock in windy conditions due to staggered engines/closely spaced drives and props rotating inward.
