Toys of Summer: Offshore Thrilling

Michael Verdon

The Cigarette 42X Ducati Edition is to the water what a Ducati superbike is to the racetrack. A collaboration between the Italian motorcycle brand and the Florida-based powerboat builder Cigarette Racing Team, the 42X Ducati Edition features a twin-stepped hull and a pair of 1,100 hp Mercury engines that help propel the boat to 100 knots with ease. Like a Ducati bike, however, the 42X Ducati Edition does not sacrifice style for speed. The powerboat, which debuted in February at a base price of $699,000, incorporates several Ducati design elements, including a red racing stripe and the motorcycle maker’s logo emblazoned atop the aft sun pad. The interior is awash in white and red leather, and the boat comes with a custom stereo system from JL Audio—one of the few things that can be heard over the roar of this racer’s engines.
