Our boat has been marina-stored out of water since new and been very well maintained with an open checkbook. Complete engine diagnostics are available – clean sheets, low RPM’s no issues. Triple 496 High Outputs (engine #’s begin w/ 0M and 0W) have barely been used. 23 total hours on the port & starboard ones, and 70 hrs on the center engine (which was put in new in ’07/’08) suggests gentle use from the middle-aged couple that we bought it from.

The Fountain 47 SC was born to run fast. There are other performance boats in this size range, of course, but the 47 has triple engines as standard equipment, and you can keep checking off options until you’re in the running for the world speed record of V-bottomed boats, which the 47 set at 114.575 mph!

But there’s more to the 47 SC than just all-out speed — lots more. Step into the cabin and, if you’re no novice in high-performance boating, you’ll be stunned to find the creamy leather upholstery on the settees or the spacious forward oversized double berth. At 65+ mph, you don’t expect to be carrying that sort of luxury, or the standard air conditioning, or a double Nutone food processor in a galley complete with Princess double electric stove, microwave and large refrigerator/freezer. You wouldn’t expect to find headroom of well over 6 feet, or a private head compartment with a hot/cold shower, or an entertainment center with television, CD player and stereo. But those are all included in the price of the Fountain 47.

Reggie Fountain designed our amazing 47′ SC specifically for performance boaters that demand more luxury, and luxury boaters that demand more performance. The truth is, this phenomenal sportboat has something for everyone. Frustrated motor yacht owners will find the 47 SC’s performance a welcome change of pace. Go ahead, just admit that you like the ego boost our sleek, spacious 47′ SC adds to your image. Never again will you do a double take when the speedometer reads a snail’s pace 30 to 40 mph at wide open throttle. With triple 496 MAG HIGH OUTPUT engines, our version of a sport cruiser does an exciting 65+ mph. Maneuverability, docking agility, fuel economy and ride comfort will also take a dramatic turn for the better the instant you turn the key.

Conversely, if you’ve been living life in the fast lane but need more amenities to keep the family happy, the 47′ SC will prove an amazing mix of performance, comfort and style. Our walk-up dash with nonskid provides easy access to the deck and anchor locker. There’s more than six feet of headroom in the spacious cabin, which is an open invitation for on-the-water entertaining. The posh galley has a sink, a refrigerator, a two-burner electric stove and a microwave oven. Fresh water is stored in twin 30-gallon tanks and there’s an 11-gallon hot water heater with exchanger. Storage space abounds and the cabin seats are finished in soft-touch glove leather for an elegant feel unlike anything you’ve experienced in a performance boat. Finally, the enclosed bathroom includes a vacuum-flush head, stand-up shower, expansive storage, a vanity area and a sink. A second handheld shower is on the transom.

The layout is bright and airy, with the playpen-like double berth behind curtains in the forward compartment, a comfy settee wrapped around a hi-lo table in the main salon, and the galley to port near the companionway so it’s easy to pass food and drinks into the cockpit. Aft to starboard is the enclosed head, a bright and easily cleaned fiberglass compartment with Corian countertops and an electric vacuum flush toilet with holding tank.

Standard power for the 47 is a trio of 410-horsepower MerCruiser Magnums with Bravo stern drives, which give a solid 50 mph cruise and a top speed of 64+. Our boat has the NEW generation, triple 425-horsepower 496 MAG HIGH OUTPUT Freshwater Cooled Mercruisers with Bravo I’s which allows for even better performance numbers with a cruise in the mid 50’s and a top speed close to 70 MPH. Our engines run happily on 92 octane fuel available at any gas dock, and, unlike many performance engines, our MerCruiser will have a long life given reasonable care.

The cockpit on the Fountain is just as comfortable at dockside as at speed, with a pair of heavily bolstered seats for helmsman and companion, and both seats have electrically operated bottoms that fold away for standing. A pair of rearward facing seats are opposite a bench seat with room for three more guests. The helmsman faces a simple white panel with 20+ gauges including everything from a trio of tachs to transmission oil pressures, but it’s easy to scan. Steering is through a high-performance hydraulic package that is power-assisted. The trio of engine and shift levers are Kiekhaefer units, as are the trim tabs.

On most performance boats, going forward on the deck is a chancy trip but, on the 47, a set of steps lead from the cockpit to the deck, where a non-slip pathway between a pair of grab rails ends at a hidden anchor locker in the bow. Aft of the cockpit is a spacious sun pad for lounging or tanning, and the built-in swim platform on the stern has a hidden swimming ladder as well as a hot-and-cold shower for rinsing off.

Access to the engines is through a pair of hydraulically lifted clamshell doors under the sun pad, and there’s plenty of space for the trio of engines as well as the Kohler 5.0 kW generator, plus room for dive tanks and air conditioning. A toggle switch at the helm actuates an electric cut-out to change from fully muffled engines in the harbor to an open exhaust system for peak performance at higher speeds.

Racing is in the background of every major builder of performance boats, but Fountain has carried that to near extremes. A Fountain boat won first place overall and the Top Gun award at every race on the 1991 American Power Boat Association National circuit — a feat never before accomplished. Not content to leave the driving to owners, Reggie Fountain personally won eight of 10 events and then set the APBA speed record as well using a 47-foot hull. Even more important, the race boats and the boats shipped to private owners are built exactly the same way, using the same materials and lamination processes. In fact, a completely stock Fountain 38 won the Catalina Ski Race in near record setting time and, once the race was over, the racing numbers were peeled off the hull and it was returned to the dealer’s showroom!

Construction on the Fountain is equal to the high-performance breeding of the boat, with bi- and tri-axial fabrics bonded with blister-resisting vinylester resin into a light and rigid unit that uses Klegecell foam coring for added strength. The hull and deck joint is not only mechanically fastened with stainless bolts but also bonded with fiberglass to assure a monocoque structure.

Fountain’s raceboat expertise is obvious not just in the engine room, which is painted with glossy white and filled with Aeroquip stainless braided hoses in place of rubber, but also in the electrical system where the wiring harnesses are carefully color-coded to make adding additional equipment (or tracing a short) a cinch.

Rather than mount through-hull fittings for the engine water pickups, Fountain builds a custom fabricated box-style pickup into the keel, and oversized water filters make sure the engines are getting pure coolant.

Once completed, each Fountain is taken for an in-water test run by one of Fountain’s test drivers. Besides a comprehensive series of Zero-Defect checks, the driver prepares a report for the future owner, detailing the speeds and proper settings for drives and trim tabs at each 1,000 rpm increment for that particular boat. Finally, each owner gets a video owner’s manual that not only shows the correct operation of the equipment, but explains how to get both safe and peak performance from the boat.
