I thought about the "best V-hull" a long long time and my final decision is the Cigarette 46' Rough Rider. There just aint anything that's ever been better or ever will be better, period. How's that for starting some chit?

The test of time and endurance has only been proven by two of the boat manufacturers on this list, Cigarette and Apache.

Thats all nice and cute but!!!!!!!! I guess we still fly in fabric planes with wood propellers...Get a grip the new materials first off will far out last any of that old antique system used from the past because it was cheap .Christ the modern plastics have life cycles into the next century..

The new Vee Hulls are getting better and better Weight is controled ,They are STIFF and Strong ..No one wants a Hull that is 60% efficient..just look under some of that legendary equiptment if you cannot see what I mean RUN to the EYE doctor..They have these new Boats running 160 MPH !!Unheard of..NOT 60.. The old guys are getting/have been passed and that my friend is progress.
