Default Stealth Cigarette-any pics out there?

I've seen the picture of the cockpit. Looks like something from that Hulk Hogan TV show.

But does anyone have a pic of what the boat itself looks like.

Thanks for the pic.

It would appear from the dash that they are trying to follow the lead of the aircraft manufacturers and go to a digital dash. I don't know how I feel about that yet. Some of the airplane dashes look real cool but they are in a more controlled envirnment as far as heat and humidity when in use.

I am curious how they fight the glare of sun on the sreens. LCD has come a long way but it still seems that with a bright overhead sun you would have trouble. Also keeping the electronics cool in that black dash has to be some issue.

Still it's an interesting concept.

Someone, anyone, help me find a pic. Here's info on it.


Think of Cigarette Racing Team's new 46 Stealth as a Cigarette with attitude. A one-of-a-kind concept boat. The Stealth was the brainchild of Cigarette Racing Team CEO and President Skip Braver and Executive Vice President Neill Hernandez, who purchased the storied boat manufacturer this past May. The powerful, yet stylish Stealth symbolizes their vision for the company. "We wanted to build a concept boat, something like they do at car shows with concept cars," Hernandez said. "Skip is an airplane pilot, and we wanted to do something that looked like you were sitting in the cockpit of a plane."

Everything in the 45-foot, 7-inch boat, which is at the center floating dock at Bahia Mar Yachting Center, was custom-built by Aventura-based Cigarette. That includes the throttles and shifters, which were molded to fit the driver's hands. The aircraft-style bolsters are hydraulically controlled and can be moved up and down to accommodate drivers of all sizes.

The Stealth is powered by a pair of 1,050-horsepower Sterling engines, and can hit a top speed of 115mph. Instead of standard gauges, you monitor the boat's performance by viewing a computer screen with images of gauges.

The boat's custom paint job features a Stealth jet on each side. Half the boat is red and half is blue, both inside -- carpeting, cushions, seats -- and out.

Another intriguing feature is the infra-red thermo imaging system, which senses heat to allow you to "see" floating objects such as boats, boards, 55-gallon drums and containers while running at night.

"You drop a cup of hot water in the water and you can see it disperse on the screen," Hernandez said.

Cost of the Stealth is $890,000. Hernandez and Braver plan to build additional concept boats that reflect the interests of their customers as well as the input of their employees.

If anyone has a current catalog, there are several pictures in it. I don't have a scanner.
