Gorgeous. I said it before and I will say it here. Both are fast but....
Fountain = Corvette
Nortech = Bugatti

i dont agree with that analogy.......not because the Fountain is a Corvette, but because it doesnt apply to boats or this scenario. You can pay a guy $20-40/hr to redo some chafe protectors or other workmanship on a fiberglass boat like a Fountain. But you cant redo the hull. Not so for any car, unless you are talking about swapping the tires. The Fountain is the Bugatti at speed.

I'll let you guys duke it out when it comes to comparing boats. Fountains are fast, no question. We also compete with them on the performance boat side and yep they're fast there too. That said a lot of Nor-Tech owners used to own Fountains. Not bragging it's just a fact.
We never set out to build the fastest hull. IMHO a big top end # ranks 3rd. We set out to build a very high quality all around boat. I hope we've accomplished that. I don't expect to sell these in large volumes either.
Rod BTW I'm a little confused by your transom comment. With the seat folded in and the live well in the transom it seems pretty roomy to me.
Unfortunately there's always some kind of trade off.

The engines are so far away from the fishing area, how do u clear a line around the engines without actually going out the door and walking around the livewell? This probably isnt a big deal really. But at the very least alot of space back there that wont be used much.

edit.....i also now see a half-hatch that you can walk on near the engines. What supports it in the middle? What is under it? I guess ill have to go look at it for myself this weekend.

Very nice with some creative thinking. The dash and top are works of art.

Two molded supports in the well.
I'm calling it a day/night.
Hope to see you at the show!

I agree. Nor-tech is way more of a custom then Fountain just like Bugatti to a Corvette. That's what i think Demeanor is trying to say not that they are faster or slower. More of quality and prestige. You see Fountain all the time, how often do you see Nor-tech. I mean cc or sport boat id take a Nor-tech over Fountain any day and i LOVE the 34 cc Fountain.

Very nice Fit & Finish! Those are some very good #'s with Trip 300's. Hull has some very nice lines to it. Graphics are excellent!

I will second about the carbon fiber on the dash. I have it on the electronics pods on the 70 and the glare can be annoying. I have 4X the shade from my hard top and the glare is still a problem.

It looks great for the show but keep this in mind for real world boats

what would be your suggestion to lesson the glare.. a different carbon fiber color, a different material can be used, painted and clear coated.. what you have in mind. thanks

Looks well built but a little flashy for my tastes. The hull lines are beautiful, the interior less so. Reminds me of the 39 Cigarette Top Fish. I can't decide if the dash and electronics box look more at home on a Vetor W2 or a TIE Fighter.

Nor-Tech has been using carbon dash panels in all of the performance boats since'97 with no shade at all.
Never had a complaint but if you want a matte finish we'll be happy to build it that way.
Here's a shot of the bilge. Every wire and rigging run is supported with stainless cushioned clamps, no plastic. This is true throughout the boat whether visible or not.
Also note we use sea cocks. I believe there was an entire thread based on that topic of discussion.

If this new 39 isnt enough reason to stop by the Nor Tech booth you should see some of the chicks hanging around that booth I was next to them at the Miami show with Jupiter marine and most of the time we were just staring at all the eye candy

My earlier comment was not about speed. Both boats are fast as I said. If it didnt make sense, you probably have not seen both cars or both boats. Although I have never driven a Nortech or Bugatti Veyron, I have had the great pleasure of looking them both over in person. There is nothing wrong with a 38 Fountain, that 39 Nortech, like the Bugatti, is just a work of art.
If anyone is ever in Fort Myers, stop by the Nortech facility and then drive down to the Bugatti dealer in Naples! Last time I was there they had a maroon/silver Veyron for 1.7 milloin and I would bet Nortech could design you a 39 to match it
Thanks for the pics!

So Jassman, whats next? Is that your 39?

great looking boat....but they better offer more than a 330 gallon fuel tank as mentioned on the website or they will never compete with the rest of the hardcore/fast big cc's ( seavee, fountain, invin, yf etc). to me, you need 485-500 min. that would be alot of coin to drop for a 115-120 one way range

Whoever did this deserves a BONUS! I will be glad to pay every penny of his time & then some if this was my boat.
