Iconic Marine puts new models on display at race this weekend

The Fountain 39 NX is one of three new models being unveiled at the Lake Race this weekend.

Iconic Marine Group will be displaying 2019 model year boats from Fountain, Donzi and Baja at the Offshore Powerboat Association’s Lake Race in Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., starting today.

New for 2019, Iconic presents the 32 Thunder Cat powered by twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboards and two center-consoles designed more for cruising than fishing, 39 NX and the 34 CC LS. Also on display will be the existing 34CC, 38CC and 38CC LS center consoles from Fountain.

For 2019, the Donzi line will continue with the 16-, 18- and 22-foot Classic models with a new model on the horizon. Baja will keep building its 24-, 27- and 36-foot Outlaws.

Also on hand will be Fountain’s 40-foot raceboat that the company is using to attempt to break the V-bottom kilo speed record. In addition to the speed record, the company says this boat gives it the chance to merge lamination and other performance characteristics into its research and design program. “Setting the kilo record is a process and an investment we are continuing to pursue,” said Iconic Marine Group COO Joe Curran in a statement. “More important are the benefits the process and its results are to integrating into our production boats.”

The boats will be on display at various events throughout the weekend, which started last night with the annual Festival of Speed at Iconic’s local dealer, Big Thunder Marine, which is also a title sponsor of the Lake Race. Big Thunder just completed a new showroom.
