Foul,
It's not a one off boat. It's a full production model. That one has been sold since the day it was tested. They have also sold others. No, not everyone can afford it, but some can.


Congratulations Phil and Richie for building the best Cigarettes around.

I still think that any "of the year" vehicle, be it a boat, car, motorcycle, or what have you, should be something that an "average" person could afford. Personal view I guess.

And I've not seen the Enzo picked at the Car of the Year by any of the major car magazines.....

Nice boat... even better engines.
But PB mag seems to write up the same manufacturers, so its not much of a surprise. I don't see them writing about the new big sutphens?(for example).

Every time that I am at TNT's new marina, I take time to look at Phil's boats. They are really nice units.
