Been in it (or maybe the other one).
They layout was ABSOLUTELY NOT what a 60+ foot yacht buyer would normally want. A little chopped up inside. Nice enough finish work, but less wood than you expect. The driver's positioning was great, and while I didn't ride in it, the boat magazines marveled at how it mowed down chop, and turned like a runabout.

I had expected to be impressed with the interior, but I was not.

Nort,
That rig was parked at Monty's when the OSO gang met last year at the Miami Boat show.

Fountain Fans:
I have a survey coming up this Thursday on a 2003 48' Fountain with 3-440 hp Yanmar diesels with Arnesons. If anybody's interested I'd be glad to share any info wanted.

Saw one at the Miami show a few years ago. My reaction...very plain and very unimpressed!

I stopped at it yesterday to pull oil samples from the engines, transmissions and generator.
Boat looked clean, but I did not go below yet.
