That is a 35 Cigarette from the 70's.

The same hull was used on both models, the Mistress had a flat deck and the other model, the Awesome, had this deck which as you can see is raised from the rubrail line.

TRS drives also shows the date of the boat.

From the surroundings in the photos it looks like a European boat....the speed limit signs on the trailer and the registration numbers on the boats alongside in the slip.

Europe was a big market for these boats in the 70's. The Greek shipowner Stavros Niarchos bought the first one from Don...yes, the same Niarchos family that is tied up with Paris Hilton now.

TB, yeah, the boats been for sale for along time now.
Its in france and its a 77.
El Indio said his awsome was the best handling boat he ever drove.
Kind of like you(and don) said about it in another thread.
BTW TB, these older boats should have been designed for use w/ transmissions, having the cog moved forward of where a bravo boat would be. How will you be dealing with this?
I think having a cog moved forward would help give the boat a better/flatter running attitude.

Our new deck will be a cross between the old Mistress, flat in front, and the old Awesome or the 28SS raised in the rear to allow more engine space.

A deposit?? Are you trying to be the new Mr Niarchos of the next generation 35???

Of course there were other uses for the 35 hull as well with a flat deck.
