Default What Exactly is this CIGARETTE?

I have a friend who owns a 1985 35' Cigarette. He is not sure what they call it and I have never seen another one like it before. He thinks it is called either a MISTRESS or a CLASSIC. Does anyone know for sure?

Second question. It is fully functional, in average condition, twin 330hp motors, twin TRS drives. What is this thing worth? The hull is in excellent condition - no rot, no damage, etc. The engines - while fully functional - look like they need some TLC. There is rust showing, etc.

Is a classic Cig like this worth $40k? 30k?

I'm interested in opinions as to what it is and what it is really worth.

Default cig 35

Looks, to me, like a Mistress. The engine/drive combo sounds right. The value sounds a bit high, unless it's in tip-top shape.
Don't expect too much top end, unless you've got big dough. But, it will crush most seas the weekend boater will encounter.

Its a spittin image of my 28, only streched The older 35's were called Mistresses, but the boat in your pic looks like it has a windshield wich leads me to belive that it is a flat deck. It is definately one of the two. As for the value check out Thunderboat Alley.com and compare it to the ones on there. I have seen them advertised from 30k up to 90k.

Hope this helps.

lots of teak and its a Mistress. Spelled P I G. They had the glass windscreen. 30k if it gets in plane and is rebuildable. Many were bottom painted.

There is a similar boat for Sale in Havasu on one of the brokers lots. Paint is almost identical except it has more black. I am not sure what they are asking for it.

You might try to PM "Semper Fi", he delivered a boat to this place recently and he can probably give you the name so you can call and see what they are asking.

Thumbs up

Yes it is a Mistress and is called that or a Flat Deck. 330 hp was standard and the option was a 400-cyclone. I have 85 but it came with 454-440hp cyclones. I bought it in dec-99 and couldn't get any better than 58 mph. Put on some vitamins, steroids and alot of help from Bruce Dudly and they grew into 540's. I have not done any prop testing and she runs 70.3 on GPS with 4 blade Hydromotive.
The TRS hurt the price but the 330's kill it. SORRY
Tell him to have someone good go through the drives, pump them up to 498 ci. Stay with carbs and be proud to own a CIGARETTE.

Jeffrey, is this boat for sale? If so, where is it and what is the owner looking to get for it? Does he have a current survey? Thanks in advance. Dave
