Default Betty Cook's 53' Cigarette??

http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi...g_id=59909&url

Did Cigarette make such a 53' boat in 1973?

I do know that Betty Cook owned this boat when new, albeit some 34 yrs ago.

Boat is located in CA, not Ft. Lauderdale as mentioned in the ad.

Looks like a Magnum to me! Boat was probably built on Thunderboat Row in Miami back in the Hay Day. Magnum, Cigarette, Apache, Tempest, etc. were all next to each other back then.

The Magnum's nose is much more round. I'd have guessed Cary but the integral swim platform throws me.

Twin 502's? I'll bet she hauls a$$!

Sure has a wide beam. Guess that comes with the 53 feet. Someone's hittin' the vodka and OJ for the photo session though. Seems like a lot of $$ for that boat. Interesting boat nonetheless.

The local broker is selling 1/5th ownerships for $25K with a $400/mo maintainance fee. ?? I cannot see that a boat like this needs a $24K worth of work a year.

$125K seems high for a boat with gas engines.

Hmmmm.....according to the ad, they are looking to get 250k for it, so they'd have to sell 10 1/5 ownerships for 25k per.....someone had better have another boat
