~ Are you ready for the boat that conquered the world of offshore racing? Fountain Mercury’s 42 Lightning has won more races than any other V-bottom in history and currently holds the UIM/APBA/SBI World Speed Record at 171.883 mph. The staggered engine set-up brings the propellers closer together, keeping the center of gravity down low, along the keel, where it works best. With Mercury 525 EFI engines, the 42 Lightning can hit speeds approaching 85mph. Raise the bar with the Mercury 1075s and expect speeds in excess of 125mph.

The spacious cabin design features an enclosed head, overnight sleeping accommodations, and a galley with an integrated cooler and pressurized sink. Extras include an integrated anchor locker with anchor, drop-down bolster seats, a full-frame wraparound windshield and an optional Bimini top with front and side enclosures.

Conquer your new worlds with the ultimate in performance, safety, and comfort with the 42 Lightning!
