New from the factory in 2005, CELESTE, a 48'6" Fountain Express Cruiser with a 12' beam, was custom built for a very discerning yachting enthusiast, who has a passion for high performance. This is not your typical production built Fountain, as the owner was very involved during its design, construction, and provided many of his own interior finishing materials. The boat was shipped to the owner in the Portland, Oregon area after its construction and has been kept under cover and on a lift when not in use. (THIS MEANS NO SUN OR SALT WATER DAMAGE) No expense has been spared in upgrades and upkeep over the years he has owned the vessel. CELESTE was Re-powered in 2008 with three Cummins QSB 5.9 480 Hp engines, has only 450 hours, and along with the three Arneson drive units with 5 blade SS props, will push this sleekly designed vessel to speeds over 60MPH!!! The engines and all systems have always been professionally maintained, no expense spared!
CELESTE has a forward Master stateroom and an aft Guest/VIP stateroom. Interior joinery is high-end Cherry wood with hi-gloss finish throughout the vessel. A second settee was added to the forward Master stateroom sharing a large centerline berth. There is an entertainment center to the port side and a deep cedar lined hanging locker to Stbd for a good amount of storage. Upgraded window coverings have also been installed throughout. Additional lighting was also installed, and give the vessel a great ambiance for evening time relaxing aboard. High quality carpeting has been installed throughout the interior as well as "Gator Step" in the cockpit area, to provide a comfortable underfoot surface if you are someone who likes to be barefoot on your boat.
To create more interior space, the owner decided to have the vessel built with a single enclosed head/shower, which has upgraded plumbing fixtures, Corian countertop and SS sink, and is just the right size for this express cruiser. By having just the one head/shower aboard, this allowed the salon to be enlarged giving additional seating space at the dining table, and making this an excellent salon for entertaining additional guests. The Galley is to the Starboard side and has an electric two burner Princess Stove, upgraded plumbing fixtures, a Sharp Carousel microwave oven and a Nova Kool R2600 refrigerator. Interior space, as well as the cockpit(with full canvas enclosure), is supplied with Marine Air A/C and Webasto Hydronic diesel heat to allow perfect climate control all year long, no matter the weather conditions. ALSO A WHISPER QUIET PANDA GENERATOR.
When entering the cockpit area from the large sport deck you instantly see the enormous amount of seating there is, providing an awesome entertainment area. There is a removable dinette table to stbd and a wet bar to the port side with Raritan ice maker. A sun-pad atop the electric engine hatch makes for a nice area to suntan, and can also convert into additional seating if needed. There is a full array of electronics including a KVH Trackphone, full Raymarine Navigation suite, ICOM VHF, Autohelm Remote Anchor Windlass Control, and much much more! The console looks like something from a private jet, with Livorsi gauges and throttles. A full canvas cover is included, which attaches to the factory arch and encloses the entire cockpit area if desired.
Hull configuration is Deep-V shaped with the dynamic step-hull design, adding to its efficiency, speed and stability. Walk-around side decks with SS handrails and Bow Thruster are also a part of this fantastic Fountain Express Cruiser. This vessel is a must see for all Fountain and go fast enthusiasts!
