Default Reggie Fountain In Key West: On the Kilo Boat, 100-MPH Cruiser and More

We caught up with the legendary Reggie Fountain today in Key West and he was as charming as ever.

48 cruiser with diesels going 64 sounds badass to me!

You cannot argue that this is the attitude that made the brand. I hope todays version of the sport will support it.

Really exciting to see. Age is just a number when you have his kind of passion. Can't wait to see the revised 42'.

Absolutely! The 48EC is a beast too! I can imagine getting passed by one at 100!

Nice to hear it straight from Reggie Sr rather than all of the stuff posted on Facebook.

They are cool but that will be a 1.2-1.4mm build new.......can't imagine too many getting ordered at that price!
The one Matt built with quad OB's sounds like a cooler direction as well.

Lots of cool performance cruisers at that price point too...

As I get older, I like that saying age is just a number !!! A redesigned hull after 10+ years.... will be interesting, where the changes will be ??? bigger steps? location? etc
