Looking to make a big splash to start the year with reenergized lines, Fountain Powerboats and Donzi Marine will display an array of models at the Miami International Boat Show February 13-17. The Washington, N.C.-based boat builder will exhibit 2020 model-year Fountain and Donzi offerings in the water at slips 550, 552, 554, 556 and 639 at the Miami Marine Stadium venue on Virginia Key.
On the center-console side of its line, Fountain will exhibit its new 34 SC, 34 CC, new 34 TE, 38 CC, 38 LS, 39 NX and 43 NX models. Powered by twin Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines, Fountain’s new 34 Thunder Cat will be on display—and available for demo rides—at the Mercury Marine in-water exhibit (slips 207 to 224).
The reintroduced and retooled Donzi 38 ZRC sit-down sportboat, which is powered by Mercury Racing 860 engines, also will be on display at the show. So, too, will the versatile Donzi 41 GTZ.
Fred Ross, the owner of the boat companies who will attend the show alongside Fountain Powerboats founder Reggie Fountain, Jr., and chief operating officer Jeff Harris, said he is eager to start the boat show season.
“This is what I do for fun,” said Ross. “I don’t go on vacations. I don’t play golf. This is what I do for my pleasure. But it’s also a business, so we are treating it like a business.”
Coming to Miami next month, the Fountain 34 Sport Console, 34 Thunder Cat, Donzi 41 GTZ and more.
