Cigarette Racing Team Debuts Super Yacht

    Pulsing through the water at an impressive length of 55 feet, and with speeds reaching upwards of 60 miles per hour, the Super Yacht is like a powerboat on steroids. In June 2007, after four years of development, Cigarette Racing Team, the world’s leading manufacturer of luxury yachts and powerboats, unveiled its largest yacht ever. The Super Yacht is designed for both speed and luxury, and it comes with amenities unlike any other powerboat Cigarette offers, including a built-in dining area with an electric grill, Wolf convection oven, refrigerator, and icemaker. A master queen-bed cabin and two guest cabins accompany the main salon, and the retractable roof makes the Super Yacht appealing rain or shine. Prices start at $1.7 million for the model with an 800 hp diesel engine and go to $2.2 million for the version equipped with 1100 hp engine.  (305.931.4564)
