I assume you mean 315 thousand Euros, or 220 thousand GB Pounds?

Not trying to screw up the deal but that is considerably more expensive than when it was new.

I'm well aware of the price disparity between the US and Europe having lived in England for 19 years and being involved in the marine trade there as I am here.

The price just seemed a bit high, that's all. Just for the record, a 2006 Fountain 42 with staggered 600s would have sold new at a non discounted price (manufacturers suggested retail price) of $428,000 here in the States. Given that the the Euro today stands at $1.43 that would have made it $622,000. Yikes!

This boat is one of few boats in this size with windscreen. And you will love the windscreen after a day out

Full served and in mint condition.
