Default 52' Fountain Custom---Kind cool!!

http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2009.../United-States


just lookin around on yachtworld and came across this custom 52 fountain fish express crusier. it looks to be an extended mold off of a '48 express cruiser. the downstairs cabin is exactly that but the main deck is completely different. The teak is outstanding as well as triple cummins with some surface drives. That'd be a lot of fun! The dash is very James Bond-y.

Anyways i thought you guys might think its pretty cool because it sure caught my eye!

I've never liked those super tall fly bridge set ups (tower?) but not withstanding, that is one pretty boat!! Plus triple cummins with surface drives (arnesons) is way cool.

A one off boat. Narrow beam for rocking in the ocean while fishing. He's a million high. Rip the tower off and sell it for 500K. 500K gets a great used sport fish that is designed for fishing from top to bottom.

Indeed... Let's see an above 70' Azimut, Hatteras or Sunseeker or that 52' boat at that price...

1.1 mil
17.3 beam
C30 cats
Self bailing so when you catch one over the stern you don't flood the engines, cabin, and sink the boat.

Yeah but in the Hatteras you can't wear the all black pantsuit, gold medallion and slick back your hair with shoe polish with the same authority that you can in the Fountain!

52 Fountain is a neat idea but not worth 1/3 of the asking price. Boat does everything but is good at nothing!
