Reggie Fountain Announces RF Powerboats


o follow up on the announcement from Reggie Fountain—the founder and recently resigned chief operating officer of Fountain Powerboats in Washington, N.C.—that he was starting RF Powerboats, Powerboat’s Editor at Large Matt Trulio contacted Fountain by phone on Wednesday. He agreed to speak with Trulio, who writes a blog on, with the understanding that we would hold the interview until today.










Here’s what Fountain had to say:

So what is RF Powerboats?

RF Powerboats is Real Fast Powerboats. Right now, I can’t legally use Reggie Fountain as a name for a boat company, though it may eventually become known as that.

What are your plans?

We are going to be heavy into service, heavy into brokerage of boats and heavy into building boats. My first two boats will be a 43-foot sport boat, a greatly enhanced and up-tuned version of my 42 but just a hair larger, and a 39-foot center console, which will be an upgraded and up-tuned version of my 38. I haven’t upgraded the styling of either of those boats since 2004.

My third boat will be a 32-foot center console. I also plan on producing two cruisers—a 40-footer and a 50-footer. We have six boats sold so far.
