Default 2000 Cigarette 42 – 2nd Chance

This Cigarette started out life with a pair of Mercury Racing 900sc’s / SSM #6 drives. The cockpit and cabin design are very unique to the boat, the rear bench seat is elevated to accommodate a generator. The cabin doesn’t have a standard vberth, it was built with a fwd section enclosed head area with full cabinetry. Sometime in the past few years, the engines and drives were removed from the boat and the previous owner had moved on from the project.

Pier 57 purchased the boat with no power, no drives and no trailer with the goal to put the boat back on the water. A decision was made to re rig the boat with moderate power and bravo style drives to keep the boat affordable. The 1st stop for the project on the way to Pier 57 was Captain Nabbers Shop ( Morris, IL ) to have a new transom installed. Captain Nabbers & Crew turn the project around in about 5 days, using 2 sheets of ¾” marine grade plywood. They filled every hole inside & outside the transom to give the Pier 57 Team a blank canvas to start. Upon completion the boat was transported to the Pier 57 facility to have the old engine mount holes filled, thru hull water pickup removed and filled. After the dusty mess in the bilge was cleaned up, the bilge received 2 coats of Super White Bilge Kote. The next step was to measure & setup the “ X “ dimension for the transoms. Our team measured, checked, double checked again and again. Once we were satisfied the transom cutout jig was mounted and the surgery started. A ½” drill bit, hole saw, sawzall and sander were used to punch out the home for the transom assemblies. Both cut outs were sanded smooth and sealed with 2 layers of fiberglass resin ( a must when bare wood is exposed ). With the resin cured, the transom assemblies are installed, sealed and torqued into place. Finally it was time to install the engines and set the mounts, at Pier 57 we have a “ mock up block” that makes setting engine alignment and marking the motor mounts a lot easier than working around a fully dressed long block. After both engine mount locations are set drilled and sealed, the 468’s can be permanently mounted in the bilge. We opted to use the same Stellings headers that came with our 468’s. Originally we were going to try and modify a set of existing CMI tailpipes, in the end we fabricated and welded water jacket extensions on the Stellings in house. After welding and flow testing with water, the headers and extensions were polished for a seamless look. The business end of the boat received a pair of 1.50 Imco shorties, Cigarette swim platform and Imco full hydraulic steering.
The cockpit of the boat received a good cleaning, padding added to the existing carpet. All gauges on the dash were made functional with the exception of the fuel pressure gauges. The boost / vacuum gauges now operate strictly as vacuum gauges. In the cabin a 12v tv / dvd combo was added where the existing 120v was originally mounted. Cushions were made for the cabin using 3” foam and a combination of silver c/f vinyl and white marine grade vinyl. The original Pirelli flooring was removed from the cabin and replaced with blue carpet to match the rest of the interior.

The current owner of the boat preferred that the engine hatch scoops were removed to make a usable sun pad. All of the hatch modifications were done in house by Pier 57 staff.

I swear I remember seeing that boat at the factory on 188th being built when Neil was there. I swear I remember hearing that that boat was built for the owner of cigarette.. At that point it would have been Jack or skip..... lsJr would know

The boat currently doesn't have the Gen & A/C. All of this was removed from the boat prior to us taking possession and starting the project. If the current owner wanted to add it down the line, all the ground work is laid for it. In its final setup the boat ran 67-68MPH which is right on par with the last 2 42 Tiger flat bottoms with 500EFI for power. Thank you for the comments.

Boat looks great and cool project but I'm curious what is the market for a 42 foot cigarette that only dies 65-68mph? I understand that's a respectable speed and the boat is probably turn key as they say but I can't help but think you'd just want to go faster than that in a boat that size. Just curious. Is there a market for that?

The boat was listed and sold in its current condition. The new owner is happy with the speed and fits his needs of what he was looking for in a performance v bottom.

Thank You,
