I can't believe after 67 posts you sleuths haven't figured out who's boat this is!




What family on the board is die hard Cigarette?







What family has two sons?







What family has their current Cig in the OSO Classified?








Feeling Lucky?







Anyone care to take a Strike at it?










Congrats to Jason.....hope he gives his older brother a ride every now and then!!!

LOL, this thread has so many twists and turns in it. Let me assist you all.

Peter Pavkovich of Custom Marine Sales www.custommarinesales.com built a 46' Cigarette called Helois (pictured below). It was delivered overseas. Shortly thereafter two 50' Cigarettes were built the second of which is pictured above.

The one above has 850's which are stock and painted 1000 at the request of the owner. The original 850 stickers were left on the motor to prove their real identity.

The family that purchased the boat is not from Pompano, FL as you suggest.

The Motors are not tuned down, or tuned up, or a new product.

OSO Steve used to work with Pete at Custom Marine Sales when it was a part of TNT Custom Marine.

TNT www.tntcustommarine.com is now on 135th Street in North Miami and is owned by World Champion Throttleman John Tomlinson (who runs the Bud Select boat with Dave Scott) and his partner Mike Thomas therefore the TNT (Tomlinson and Thomas). TNT is known for their Custom Rigging and Maintenance of some of the Fastest and most Expensive boats in the World. John Tomlinson does boat testing for Powerboat with Bob Teague. JT as they call him also was the stunt double for the Miami Vice Movie (see article in last months Powerboat Magazine for details)

Custom Marine Sale www.custommarinesales.com is located on 33rd Street in Ft. Lauderdale just down the Street from OSO Headquarters. Pete Pavkovich is a transplant from Toledo, Ohio area some 18+ years ago. He is very knowlegeable in Cigarettes, Skaters, and MTI's as well as most other boats. If you are ever in the area stop by and see him, you are guaranteed to learn something. He is easily identified as he and his partner in crime, Mr. Fugs, travel everywhere together. Mr. Fugs is a small Palmaranian who lives in a travel bag.


Simple as that.

Steve,

I know that isn't LS's new boat but figured he wouldn't get to read any of this until Monday after the Sarasota run he might enjoy everyone else's speculation...........

Boat is badazz, don't know why everyone is so jealous though. you can't tell me if you were 15 and could have a boat like this you would turn it down. I don't even have a boat right now, and i say congrats to the kid and let her rip.

This is the sister ship to the one that was at the Miami boat show. They were custom built by Cig (only two ever made/ stretched 46's) for a prince or some crap over seas and his son(s).

15 year old with a two off custom built 1mil+ Cig....It's royalty baby...Nothing is above them.

Oh, and Helios is currently at SC Marine in Huntington Beach.....That is also a SWEET AZZ ride in perfect condition. Due to go back to Europe as soon as it's serviced!!!

Here's a shot of the interior of the sister ship. This was the one with the tripple motors that were inverted (two in front one in back).

No, the sister boat had 1075s (I think!) but was a tripple motor boat.

I'm sure Skip will build you your very own if you want to pay 1mil+. You'll be the third...DO IT!!

The motors are also custom from Merc. Again, royalty will get you whatever you want bro.
