As far as I know the Only 28 hulls that Cig made were the 28ss wich I have, and the 28 open. If you want to know more about the Firefox and the 28 hulls then check out www.thunderboatalley.com it is an awesome site ran by OSO's Sean. The site is packed with tons of info on all the classic Aronow hulls.


here is a pic of my 28 ss

What Thillseeker said! Sean's site would be the one to look at.

Hey Thill, hows the Cig running?

Here is a link with some photos but very little info. I think I have a brochure in my materials somewhere. They made both a 24 and a 20 ft
Hope this helps,
Bob

Do you ever go down to LOTO? If so, maybe we can hook up sometime.

There was a line of boats at one time named Imperial, but if I remember correctly they were fairly generic family boats. However there was a company called IMP boats that made a fairly agressive "offshore type" boat during the 80s. There were a few of them here on Lake Ontario and I remember them as be very stout and solid "Dick Butkis" kind of boats.
Hope this helps,
Bob

I could be wrong but I think IMP was related to imperial And the boat around that size that looked like the firefox a little was the 23 eleganza. there was also a 25 and a 30 but the 25 looked more like a sport cruiser kinda like a nova. Again I'm not real sure if any one can verify please do.

There is only one model/brand Firefox. 24 Cigarette. If your asking about Cigarette type hulls there are similar but not the real thing. The Firefox was a deck change to the 24 hull which was in the Cigatette model range with a flat type deck. Craig
