Thanks, but I’d rather have a rowboat so I’m in the water now! Your boat is gorgeous!

Needs the deck color sanded and buffed and some dock rash addressed. Couple gauges replaced and perko latches but it's ready to go.

I gotta say, over the past couple years I've been looking at pretty much anything under 100k. I was looking at 33 and 36 Outlaws (I happen to like Bajas ) I was looking at 340 Baja CC's, 36 Concepts, 30' Concepts, older Active Thunders, 38 Scarabs but of course I always came back to wanting another Cigarette. I'm a cigarette guy. I've always loved Café Racers since OSO member Kevin Schulte (now owns a 42X) had his 93 Café we ran nearly every weekend for years. I was looking to buy a Café Racer in the early 2000's when I was searching for our first Cigarette. But I lucked into a 3A Top Gun Phil hooked me up with and like this Café it was just too good to pass. But the second time around I decided a Café would really meet our needs for the young boys and family with a usable cabin, turn key power and wave crushability for boating out here in the pacific ocean. I basically had an agreement with another buddy that lives in Lauderdale that has a really nice Café that I've known forever too but while I was getting my ducks in a row he went and repowered and decided he wanted to keep the boat. Then the owner of the boat I ended up with called out of the blue and was like, I'm ready to sell (I'd been hitting him up for a few years). So, like I said, it just all fell into place. I find when it's right, you know it and there's no stress, it just flows, which this did. From storage, to insurance to money to the boat itself it all just fell into place easily.

And believe it or not, I plan on towing the kids in a tube behind this at the lake so I'll be posting pics of that LOL
