Fountain

Fountain

Already a successful racer, Reggie Fountain brought his need for speed to Fountain Powerboats in 1979. Victories and satisfied customers soon followed. But while Fountain’s passion for performance is legendary, he placed a similar focus on making certain that speed was matched by an unparalleled level of safety, top-notch handling, smooth ride, and dependability. The brand’s dominance has been proven on the racecourse time and time again, and brought a similar mindset to the fishing and express cruiser markets. Baja Marine acquired the company in late 2012, and Fountain is back in action today.
