Cool Moving Up

Hey All, I have just a basic question for everyone. I want to move up from a 2003 29 Fountain with a 525 EFI. I am looking in the 200k range and I am heavily leaning towards the 35 lightning w 525s. Any thoughts on other options? I am considering a Nordic Flame or a Top Gun but the Cig is pricy and the Flame is one I know little of. What other boats would you all consider and why? Thanks Jim

Tomorrow is the big day....new fuel pump, pressure regulator and cleaned intake from tank. If that doesnt do it, I will still have a 62 mph Fever.

If you are going to stay with the Fountain brand dont go to the 35 look more towards the 38 alot more boat for some reason.
I have a friend that bought a 35 Flame with 500 efi's and it is really fast 85-89 every day, handles the water good and easy to tow., lighter boat.

Good luck with that motor

If you are bent on a 35 Fountain, there is a meticulously maintained used 35 with 500EFIs in VA. Formerly owned by Tarheel here on OSO.

They don't come any cleaner than this one. I am not endorsing the dealer, but the boat is immaculate.
