Name another fish boat that even comes close. Like their fresh water counterparts on the bass-fishing circuit, king mackerel tournament anglers value speed, performance and style. That’s why the Fountain 34 is a sure hit with the salt water crowd. It looks like a racy fishboat, and it performs like a racing fishboat. This is one hot-rod machine!

In order to maximize performance, the 34 incorporates several design features originally tested on the company’s offshore racing models. The hull includes a notched-transom, twin positive-lift steps for ventilation and a pad keel to minimize drag without sacrificing control. The weight is kept in check by using composite, hand-laid fiberglass with high-density foam coring and vinylester resin. The end result is only 18 inches less bottom-running surface than the 38-foot Tournament Edition, yet the performance characteristics are very similar.
The 34’s open bow design provides enough fish-fighting room forward and aft for a team of anglers, and the wraparound coaming bolsters offer comfort for extended battles. And as you’d expect, the 34 is equipped with four gargantuan in-deck fishboxes (800-quart total capacity) that are fitted with macerators and drain overboard. All split-lid hatch covers are cored and gasketed to allow easy opening and provide a tight seal. This boat is also self-bailing, with deep deck channels that funnel water quickly to the scuppers.
The transom features a padded seat with handrails, conveniently located between the transom door and bait-prep station. The live well, which can hold enough hardtails or goggle-eyes to last all day, is located underneath. Both salt and fresh water washdowns are standard, and an in-deck cockpit hatch provides access to the bilge and pump systems. There are also plenty of storage compartments to house tackle and other gear.
While the Fountain 34 is built for speed, it’s also built to last. The hull, deck and inner liner are laminated with fiberglass, then pop-riveted, glassed, through-bolted, screwed and finally sealed with marine adhesive. The rails are heavy-duty stainless steel and through-bolted, while the 360-gallon, baffled fuel tank is made of welded, heavy aluminum and locked into position three different ways.
Overall, the well-built and well-designed Fountain 34 is more than capable of meeting the demands of offshore sport fishing, tournament or otherwise. Just get ready for plenty of eye-popping stares if you ever decide to slow down.
