A recent cruise through the used-boat ads at Fountain Powerboats’ Web site turned up one listing with a remarkable selling point: a 31-footer formerly owned by George H. Bush.
The 1998 center-console model, named Fidelity II, was advertised with twin Mercury 225 EFI outboards and a fully packed helm. The current owner also promised to deliver a letter of authenticity proving the Presidential heritage.
How much does it cost to acquire a piece of Bush history? The Fountain was listed at $64,999. If you’re interested, check out www.fountainpowerboats.com/sp_salepres.htm to see if she’s still on the market.
