Well I'll be buggered, you're right! No race at Le Mans - guess I just put F1 and Europe together and came up with Le Mans. Oops...

How about we put Nurburgring or Monaco in there instead?

Challenger Offshore currently has molds of 2 styles of 42's that have the crooked side in them. The mold is an old Aronow mold that was used by several different companies. I think before Challenger got the molds these boats were called Axium for a while and built in west michigan. That the story as I know it. Dwight

IMHO There were two boats with the Stepped sheer line .One was a 40 Foot Cigarette which was the Old 36 stretched to 40 (the one with the Wale) and the 39 Foot cigarette which was a Lengthened 35 The one. With the Fold in its side.

Mr. Aronow sold the 40 foot Mold to a company in Fort Lauderdale Called Performer, The 39 Mold I do not know where it went after Cigarette. It was Good Rough water Race Boat in its day. And one of them was US1 a Flat Deck version! Now the “Bubble Deck” was on the 39 and that went by the wayside as it is Ugly!

I am curious which of the molds Challenger has. I had looked all over the web for the stepped side hull and until now I thought that it was either a really old cig hull or it was something that Challenger aquired from somewhere else. Sounds like it may have been a little of both. Later Dwight

I just saw the Challenger Offshore Companys 42' It could be the old 40 as the Beam shown is 9'-6"

Also Challenger Offshore bought the assets Of "Challenger Boat Works" Cedar Springs Mi in August 95 or so.

Guess the guy liked the Name too!

This is not the first time this boat has been on ebay. I think he tried to raffle it off a couple of years ago around here. And yes its ugly.
