Manufacturer Provided Description

Powered by triple 480 hp, Cummins fuel-efficient diesel engines, the Fountain 48 Express Cruiser can cruise at an astonishing 50 mph while attaining one-plus mile per gallon. Open up the throttles and run up to 64 mph. Further, the 48 EC's 12-foot beam provides the perfect combination of smooth ride and stable platform. Underneath the 48 provides you with the luxury that you would expect from a world class yacht. Like all Fountains, this classic was born of the brutal world of offshore racing. It means simply that this one performs like a champ. Remember, this is the yacht that set a world record from Key West to Cancun, Mexico, dashing 405 miles in 8 hours and 36 minutes while running into a three to five foot head sea. A quick days cruise instead of the traditional overnight haul. While others are still chasing the moon, you could be sipping cocktails in its luminous thrall.
