Rik,
I looked at that boat four years ago when it was donated to the local Sea Scouts in Napa. It's been cut and stretched to make it a 53' but they did a nice job. The boat was selling for $20k four years ago... Yes 20k!

Someone has done some MAJOR re-work on her along with painting the hullsides. She looks alot better than she did when I saw her last. The motors that where in it then where blown 454's and looked liked they needed some good lovin'.

It's got a great stabin'-cabin but it's going to take you all day to get to Sams and good luck getting dock space for that stretch! I was thinking of putting a pair of deisels in her but it was way more project for what it's worth.

Looks like she's tied up in the Canal behing Butch's? Short walk for you and Dale!

I read that Cigarette at one point had licensed a manufacturer in Europe to make a 50+ hull and I have seen some for sale now and then but I don't know if this is one of them.

Looks alot like the 42 for sale in the OSO classifieds, that would be a great boat for about 100k

That was OTAM, Jack Kabassa, or how ever one spelled his name made that agreement.

OTAM was basically just a 44' Magnum splash.

Sorry, I am not interested in purchasing a boat. I just met someone at Loch Lomand, that asked about the 53' Cigarette that was for sale.. ??? Didn't think Cig made such a thing in the early 70's but I am by no means an expert on the history of Cig.

Gas, inboards, old... Not worth making a booze cruiser.
