Great 1992 Fountain with twin 2000 model 225 EFI mercurys. Approx. 800 hrs. on engines that have always ran flawlessly. Complete Raymarine C-70 electronics with a Garmin 178C as back up. Three sets of stainless props. New plugs,thermostats, alternator belts, fuel filters, water pumps checked. Nice cabin with enclosed head, and an aluminum hard top. Plenty of inside storage to protect your valuables. Large live well and fish box. The boat cruises nicely at 35 mph in a 3 ft. chop, and will top out at 60. It sets on an Owens and Sons aluminum trailer that is ready to go anywhere. 15 in. aluminum wheels with 2 complete spares including hubs. Stainless Kodiak disk brakes,LED lights, and an electric winch. The first $26,000 takes this rig. It is located in northwest Colorado. (Grand Junction) Pull it anywhere, and fish tomorrow.

It is. My offshore dream boat, rigged the way I wanted it. At 65, I need to down size at little. Definitely a trade off. Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys. Pluses on this boat are, it is very well built, rides very smooth, trailers really good, and will spoil you with speed when you can use it. The cabin doesn't have a lot of head room, but will sleep two very comfortably. Radar, navigation, and fish finder with a 1kw through hull transducer reads the bottom to 1500 ft.

Until you've been that fast in a 31 ft boat, you truly can't appreciate how nicely they cruise at 35 or 40. Fish more, run less. The length is what smooths out the chop. It just spoils you when your running to a spot and can't wait to get there!

we have a 35 cigarette with twin 540s and 871s strapped on top of them, i got the speed part. but yes most do not have the or have had the experience of driving a true go fast boat. getting places in 3 to 4 foot chop cruising and not getting pounded is the best.
you should have no issues selling that boat at that price. very clean and fun. good luck and hope the downsize goes well. i actually wish i had the cash to pick that beast up.

How are these? The live well is in the box under the helm seat, and fish box under the passenger seat. This has been a great offshore fishing machine. I just need to down size. Someones going to get a hell of a buy.
