It had a full 5 seat interior and was a boat that anoyone could of bought hence all the 47 GTX's out there. Triple X was a boat you could check off from an order sheet. It had a removable top just like the rest.

Designed and rigged by cigarette, epoxy layup by skater (Cig doesn't do epoxy and when they do they have skater do it). The Cig kilo boat was sold to a customer and if anyone truly wishes too they can order the same boat from cigarette any time. It was even listed on their line up at the 08 Miami show.

To say it isn't a Cig is to say fountain didn't deserve half their race records or kilo record because skater layed up some of their boats.

Not knocking tripple X. Sweet boat that demanded (as it surely will again) attention wherever it goes. It blew past us at easily 120+ at the Daytona poker run a few years ago. Those dry stacks screaming as it went by about 25' to our port. Phil and I looked at each other with grins from ear to eat...it's an awesome machine.

Skater designed the bottom of the boat for Cigarette. They designed the later 46 bottom as well if I recall.

Whatever the history, this thing is going to be an amazing boat for the price. Wish it was being done a year later . . .
