The Cigarette 42 Huntress Combines Power and Comfort

Saying that Cigarette knows something about performance boats is like saying that Jackson Pollock was somewhat familiar with paint. Cigarette’s latest speedster, the 42 Huntress, is the fourth collaboration between Cigarette and Mercedes-AMG, resulting in an offshore performance powerboat capable of a blistering 78 mph. Pushing the 42-foot boat to those hold-your-hat speeds are five (yes, five) Mercury Racing Verado 350SCi outboards.

 

In contrast to the reputation of some go-fast boats, the 42 Huntress has a few welcome creature comforts. The V berth belowdecks can sleep two. A stand-up head and shower, refrigerator, and sink are also down in the luxury cabin, and the nearly 12-foot beam lends additional comfort. The 42 Huntress’s T-top shades the helm, where bolsters with pull-down seating give stand-up or sit-down support. Guest seating is provided fore and aft. The lounges can slide together hydraulically to form a sun pad, too. (305.931.4564, www.cigaretteracing.com)
