Manufacturer Provided Description

The incredible Fountain 48 Express Cruiser is powered by three 480 Cummins diesels. It will top out at 62 and cruise at 42 getting 1.7 mpg. And, if you fancy the punch of gas, the 48EC powered by three MerCruiser 525s and Bravo III XR drives will still let you cruise at 50 and then top out at searing 63-mph.With triple 480 hp diesel engines it will allow you to cruise?cruise, mind you?at 50-mph - while barely sipping fuel: a little over one mile per gallon. Advance the throttles and power out to the islands at 63-mph. Power and speed aren't the only stories: the 48's 12-foot beam gives you the perfect combination of smooth ride and stable comfort. Remember, this yacht's heritage comes from the brutal world of offshore racing and Reggie Fountain's many championships. That's why he designed it the way he did.The master stateroom has a pedestal berth flanked by matching couches. The bathroom offers VacuFlush MSD, shower, molded Corian sink, and lots of stowage for towels and accessories. It is completely private. There also is a cedar-lined hanging locker. The master also has a full entertainment center with flat-screen TV, CD, and DVD player. Guests also are cosseted in luxury in an aft cabin of their own with double berth and bedside table. There is yet another flat-screen TV.

Engine Notes Recommended Power:
Triple 480 Cummins w/Twin Disc Surface Drives

Triple Cummins 5.9 Turbo charged diesels provide reliable power that is exhilarating. The engines are in perfect running condition and are coupled to "Twin Disc" transmissions and Arneson surface drives with Hering stainless steel props.


The boat features a large, sumptuously appointed, and private forward berth that features cherrywood and ultra leather. The beautiful salon is fitted with the much sought after settee and is also finished in cherrywood and ultra leather. There is a roomy aft cabin and a head with separate shower. The fit and finish on this boat is exceptional. The hardwood floors provide a rich lustre that compliments the interior fittings and adds a warm glow to the salon. The salon is simply an exercise in opulence and quality.


The cockpit is very large and accommodating. The seller recently added new canvas with black out curtains for privacy. The cockpit features upholstery up-grades as well as heat and air conditioning to provide comfort and extend your season. There is a large hardtop that carries a forward looking infrared camera, Radar, satellite TV, bullet style stereo speakers. As you move aft, you'll find a huge sun lounge integrated within the cockpit.


New canvas and eisenglass were just completed and will be installed in the spring. Garmin Digital radar was installed and cockpit upholstery was u-graded. The boat is buffed and waxed every year from the top to the keel. The boat has been used five months of the year and when not in use is stored in heated indoor storage.

Broker's notes

This is truly an exceptional example of Fountain workmanship being sold by a caring and knowledgeable couple who have spared no expense to keep her in top shape. The bottom has never been painted. The seller keeps the bottom spotless.

This is the diesel model that is powered by Cummins 5.9 turbo charged engines. Ultra reliability and incredible economy especially when compared to the gas powered models that are common.

You can cruise all day at low RPM and still be up on plane enjoying the ride. Push the throttles and this Fountain responds quickly and athletically. The handling is outstanding; smooth and responsive. Docking is a breeze with the bow thruster and FLIR provides the security of being able to cruise with confidence at night.

I love this boat as you can probably tell. She's special and has been pampered.
