2022 Fountain 42 Lightning

More than a year in the making, the most legendary high-performance V-bottom to ever hit the water. Sporting a next-generation deck, transom, cabin, cockpit and dash, the only thing we didn't update on the 42' Lightning is the boat's time-tested and race proven bottom design. As rivals have learned on racecourses and waterways around the world, you can't beat Fountain's 42' Lightning when it comes to top-end, midrange acceleration and ride control. The boat flat gets it, and is now more user-friendly than ever before.
