Looking for a serious fishing boat? Our 38CC now comes in an open version with plenty of walk around space and toe room to fight the big ones! This boat has all of the bells and whistles that Fountain's fishing fleet is known for; such as a 50 gal circulating livewell, t-top with rocket launchers and a spacious head with vaccuflush toilet.
Want space to keep your catch cold? Try four 200qt macerated fish boxes. For maximum efficiency the 38 comes standard with our super ventilated twin step pad keel design with integrated transom bracket. At 4500 rpm cruise at 50 mph while getting 1.5 mpg - astounding for a boat this size.
According to the June 2006 issue of Boating Magazine with the same triple 275 Verados the 38 Donzi gets only 1.3 mpg at 4500 rpm and cruises 5 mph slower than the Fountain. In fact to cruise at 50 mph in the Donzi you'll need to raise the rpm to 5000 where it lowers the mpg to 1.1. Even though it goes faster the Fountain is still one foot wider than the Donzi, wrote Lenny Rudow of Boating Magazine.
So if your in the market for an efficient high performance fishing machine the new 38 cc open should undoubtedly be on the top of your list.
