Default Looking for info on 35' Cafe or 35' Top Gun...

I hope to purchase my first Cig next year, but I am getting ready to build a new garage and want to be able to store it inside. Can someone tell me how long they are from the trailer ball to the drives?

Thanks for the help, this forum is awesome!

Make sure you go at LEAST 45 feet. You may find a deal on a 38' Top Gun.

There is no rule of thumb, but my 37' boat is 45 feet from the coupler to the tip of the drives when trimmed out for towing.

I asked this exact question last month, the common response was 46 feet for a Top Gun so figure 43 feet for a 35 Cigarette

45' sounds right...

Or you could get a Fountain 35 and only have to build a 30' garage...

I have a 35 Mistress it is 43 and change so you need at least 44' you sure would not want to be short. The Mistress is really 35' 6". I have a 2001 prestige trailer. Of course you can always use a garage stretcher...lol

I would build as big a garage as the county/city would let you - you never know when the perfect deal on a Rough Rider comes around!??!?!?!
