Default Bad Boy

I have always enjoyed the ads that Cigarette has put together. They've defined the brand and set a standard for style that is unmatched in the industry.

As a younger man I remember well the campaign:

"Does this mean I get a ride in your Cigarette now?"

I always thought that this was one of the greatest ad series ever and it did'nt even show the boats in most ads. Much less talk about speed, horsepower, or ride.

And recently how many of us remember the nameless blonde looking over the sunpad. WITH NO CAPTION and a foggy logo. Man if that's not style and understatement. Some might even call it BADNESS.
These were always the things that I thought of as an owner not just the ride and speed issues.
Heck if i just wanted a fast boat I could get a skater or fountain.

But that said Cigarette has always been the brand leader in the catagory of offshore image and recognition. When was the last time you saw a guy pointing out into the ocean and saying "look son there goes a Donzi" or "oh look that's one of those fountain boats"
No they say " look it's a cigarette" regardless of what the boat has on it . In most cases if it's long, loud, and pointy then it's a Cigarette regardless.

The fact that the boats themselves have been redesigned and reengineered to reflect the best technology available today speaks for itself.

Yeah there are cheaper and less expensive products available out there. And there need to be. You always need to have an alternative. Not every one wants Vanilla Hagen Daz.

Speaking for myself. My Cigarette is not the largest or the fastest boat around but when I pull into Shooter's, Monty's, The sand bar at islamorada, the Casino on Kelly's Island or just my local marina it is a CIGARETTE and boaters and landlubbers alike seem to recognize that and take notice.

Whether they think I'm a "Bad Boy" really doesn't matter, What matters is that to me is that I think that I am, just a little bit and that's real fun.

Best to all

Hey Kurt, that would have been me! Glad to have it home.

BTW do you know anything about the profile with the scoops on 5 just north of camdenton, that boat looks real sharp.
