Fountain is the hands down fastest top end v-bottom boat out there. 37 OL is a nice boat, but they are NOT as fast as a fountain. the Gladiator is close competitor, but they are not good in the turns. If you want to know who is the fastest, just check the kilo numbers. I also think that if somebody would rig a new 38 fountain for F-2, they would do very well.

I haven't witnessed it in person, but the numbers I've seen suggest the O/L and Hustler are faster than the Fountain. I'm looking at a comparison on 37 O/L, 38 Hustler, and 42 Fountain (all with twin HP 500). These seem to be comparable in size.

Spend the $, but the OuterLimits, and you will not regret the investment. You will have the best, and in the real world, where most of us boat, changing seas, lots of fuel, full cockpit, lots of stuff on board, you will be at the front, HP for HP.

It's a ridiculous question It is one of the most shallow questions asked about every six months. (Well the question about Does anyone build a better boat than ...? is pretty bad too)

It starts by asking "Fastest V-Bottom Period" and immediately starts adding parameters... limit motors .... minimum length ....

If you are running stock power, you are not going to be the fastest anything on the water.

If you have a fountain, do you want to know what the fastest model is?

If you have a Bayliner, do you want to know what the fastest model is?

Or, If you have a v-drive shallow v-bottom w/ BBC ..............


Bla bla bla .......

Sorry for not being specific enough.

What is the fastest recreational v-hull with the same HP and drives 37' - 42'?

Is that specific enough?
