This classic 1974 cigarette 35 racing boat is true piece of racing boat history. She was raced by the famous Italian powerboat racer Carlo Bonomi, under her race livery ‘Dry Martini’.
‘Dry Martini’ was the third Cigarette 35 built and like her predecessors does not disappoint, powered by her twin Mercrusier 600hp mechanically fuel injected race engines from 1974. These engines were rebuilt in 2010, the compression ratio was lowered which would allow the boat to be run on petrol available at the pump, rather than high octane race fuel. Running on Speedmaster 3A’s outdrives.
Complete with a 6 wheel road trailer and full boat cover, Dry Martini is the most period correct and original class one boat on the market today.
