Since Tracy has been in search of a demo ride in a 39 Cig for the last year now I'd say yes.

I understand that companies have agreements with other co's. In these times, why the F wouldnt a builder just build a hull that the customer wants and have say, TNT, rig it with whatever the customer wants? Money is Money. But i guess 1 boat isnt going to make or break Ciggy

if that is what you want tracy, plenty of 39's for sale with brokers. See if they will do the swap as a pkg deal. buy a 1 year old 39, sell the power and do the switch. I'm sure Ilmore would do anything they could as it would give them the usable info for future swaps.

I'm loving mine best $$ spent on an upgrade to date. Nicely engineered, simple to maintain, shift like butter & increased performance. Very clean installation & rigging. Ilmor thought this package thru before releasing it as they do everything.

As far as the direct replacement for a bravo question I'd say it;s going to be situational b/c from an alignment standpoint it's no problem but if you are cramped for space in the bilge you may not have room for the trannies.

Curious, EXACTLY how many ex-Cig owners do you know that now have Nor-Tech V's? Can you actually name one?
hmmmm.....how about BobtheBuilder to start and Ozzie who just traded his 38 TG and built a 43V (Miami show boat last year).

As for getting out of the single step...makes sense.
Last one Jeff had was a 700/#6 boat.......
