The Cigarette name has become synonymous for high-speed, high-testosterone powerboats. People who wouldn't know the difference between a Nordhavn and a canoe know what a Cigarette looks like.
In the beginning, Cigarettes were for racing. But since there are only a limited number of people who wanted to race, most were sold to the general public. Under Braver's stewardship racing has been dropped as a focus, and recreational boats is its primary business. As day boats they are designed to go reasonably fast, make a lot of noise, and catch the attention of anyone on the water or in a waterside bistro or snuggery.
Over the last couple of decades, poker runs have become popular and it is here that many Cigarettes strut their stuff. These days most poker runs are more like a boat rendezvous for all sorts of boats, not just high-performance. They have become outings for the whole family in many cases. Needless to say, at the marina before and after the poker runs, the Cigarettes get their share of the spectator attention.

In order to go fast, a boat needs to be light and narrow. The 38 Top Gun has a displacement of 9,900 lbs. and has an 8' beam. This compares to a normal express cruiser which might run anywhere from 15,000 lbs. to 25,000 lbs. and be from 12' to 15' wide. Compared to other go-fast boats the 38 is about the same or even a bit heavier than some. One factory spokesperson told us, "Cigarette does not compromise on its construction for the sake of lightness to achieve speed."

Bottom shape is a given: Ray Hunt designed a 24-degree deadrise boat for Dick Bertram and the first Moppie and that deadrise angle has stuck, at least at the transom. A constant deadrise angle was used years ago, but has been pretty much superseded by the variable deadrise that most naval architects use now when designing high-speed boats. By making the bows with a sharp entry they are more comfortable at high speed going through rough conditions.

This Top Gun is in Ft Myers. No trailer is included.

Don Aronow had a different approach to selling boats, and he was a master at it. Over the course of a year he might sell 50 boats, many of them himself. Tall, tanned, lean and handsome, he nearly always had a quick broad smile and a clever quip, and people enjoyed his sass -- including billionaires, presidents and kings.

His two favorite sales pitches were:

1. You can't afford this boator

2. It's too much boat for you.

Prove him wrong with this lightly used Top Gun.
