1978 Cigarette 28 SS - #1

Conceived, born and bred in the demanding environment of blue-water ocean racing by legendary racer, builder and designer Don Aronow, this Cigarette 28 SS is designed and equipped to perform as a thoroughbred racing machine while at the same time providing all the comfort and convenient of a calm water pleasure craft.

At the time of its introduction 50 years ago, equipped with standard power at that time of less than half what this particular boat has, it was the fastest production boat made, able to get up to 45 mph with twin 165 horsepower Mercruisers.

On the other hand, this boat has twin custom high performance race-shop build engines (build sheets available in due diligence) with through-transom stainless wet headers, of approximately 400 horsepower, (and perhaps as many decibels :-) coupled via Imco extension boxes and torsional driveshafts to heavy duty Bravo One drives with external hydraulic steering and prop vents to enable those engines to quickly get up to their optimal torque and power curve, at which point you should be flying along at around 85 mph as will be indicated on the Gaffrig GPS speedometer with Tattle Tale memory. All engine info provided by the seller.

So, if you are an adrenaline junkie with a need for speed, this boat was made for you to meet your maker.

On the other hand, if you consider yourself mature and civilized but with an inner wild streak to keep you young, like to show up the kids from time to time or fancy yourself dressed in your tuxedo making a grand entrance at the casino dock and ordering your vodka martini shaken, not stirred... this boat will certainly outrun all the machine-gun toting, black-turtlenecked henchmen chasing you and your date later in the evening with their Zodiacs.

Either way, painted in all-American theme and colors, in absolutely excellent cosmetic and operational condition, not to mention being a legendary classic boat built by a boating legend, this boat will be a head turner wherever you go, for sure.
