Cigarette Racing marks 40th Anniversary and Powerboat Magazine Award for 39 Top Gun Unlimited

We couldn't go on too much longer without noting that 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of Cigarette Racing, and the company, under the leadership of President and CEO Skip Braver, has done an outstanding job of maintaining and building upon its iconic reputation. Originally founded by the legendary Don Aronow, Cigarette has always been synonymous with high-performance powerboating - to the extend that for many years, all high-performance deep-V hulls were commonly referred to as "cigarette boats."

That tradition of excellence continues with the 39 Top Gun Unlimited, which has taken home Powerboat Magazine's 2009’s OFFSHORE V-BOTTOM OF THE YEAR award; it marks the sixth year in a row that Cigarette Racing Team has won accolades from the magazine as part of its annual Awards for Product Excellence. The 39 Top Gun Unlimited is also the company's best selling model. "We created this boat to meet the needs of our customer," explained Braver. "They've said they like it and we're glad Powerboat agrees."

The 39 Top Gun Unlimited has a LOA of 38' 9" - a beam of 8' and an overall weight of 9,900 lbs. Standard power includes twin Mercury Racing 700 SCI engines, but it can be ordered with 600s, 662s, 850s or 1075s. If you can swing it, a new or used Cigarette is always a good investment, as they are universally noted for holding their value over time. To find out more, head over to their website.
