Default Fresh off the grave vine. Cig + Apache=WOW

Now this is really rumor starting, but I heard from a VERY reliable source within Apache that the owners of Apache may be buying Cigarette. If this happens, none other than Bobby Saccenti would be put at the helm of this new high performance powerhouse. Now that's a man that knows how to build a boat!

Could it be true? What have you heard? Or was it just a dream?

Well, according to recent publications, the current owners of Cigarette are more interested in leveraging their brand than in building boats. And with their reported problems at their new facility, selling the boat part could be a prudent move. It's done all the time. Volkswagen bought Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini.

Awe come on Ron. You know no rumors are ever spread on OSO. LET ALONE STARTED!


As Sargent Joe Friday would say " Just the facts mam, um, sir"

Lets just say I wouldn't start a rumor that had no merit. Of course things can fall apart at the last second but this seems to be on a warpath if you know what I mean.

Question

i got an email from someone close to Apache. My take was they are exploring the idea of purchasing the entire operation, but it was only in the rumor stages.

I know if I bought a Cig/Apache I'd call it Smoke Signals!
