[QUOTE=automobili_v12;3532787]That aronow 47 was a boat similiar to a cary or magnum and had like a 12" or 14" Beam, the one they are talking about is a 8" Beam.
It may have a 12' beam but holy chit thats a cool "express cruiser!!"
That's a pimp cruiser right there! lol
We had one of those monster 47's in our area for a while. it was traded for a pershing a few years back.
How does this boat compare to the 49' Cigarette Grand Sport in terms of power, speed and handeling?
from powerboat 98
I found this stuff researching my 37.
That 47 is a BEAST!! 35,000 lbs!
Owner Tony Frisina commented “Don Aronow is world reknown as the father of offshore powerboating and is an American Legend. In tribute to Don, we will build Hull #1 exaclty as he designed it, creating a state of the art time piece in his honor. This large offshore boat has a large luxury cabin, a spacious cockpit and features one of the largest engine rooms ever designed in an offshore powerboat.
The 47 Aronow Tribute will be a one time build and is being offered to the public to purchase with multiple engine packages available. The Frisini Motorsports version of the 47 will be completely updated with changes to the design for more of a modern era look and feel. It will boast a large and roomy cabin as well as a plethora of amenities for boaters who demand only the best. It will be offered with Mercurys new 1100 and 1350 Twin Turbo engines and It will also feature a new state of the art step bottom giving it the performance that is the epitome of the Don Aronow legacy.
”The performance boat market has seen better days for sure, but a Legendary boat like this will never die” said John Cunningham, head of Marketing and Sales “The response from avid offshore boaters has been incredible to say the least and am shocked to see how many boaters have interest in this Don Aronow original. I am looking forward to taking her out for a ride for the first time"
Frisini Motorsport's corporate office is based across the Hudson river from New York City on the Jersey shore and the boats are being built in the current manufacturing plant in sunny Fort Pierce Florida.
That big 47, Midnight express built that also,now looking at the picture, it needs to be 6-8 feet longer.
