Default One Question

Has any one currently working at Cigarette ever actually been in offshore conditions at speed, or maybe it's just been too long ago. Unfortunately the only people who will seriously consider these boats are those who have little or no experience but plenty of money, they'll be in and out of the sport after one nightmare of a boat, never understanding what the real attraction is, pity.

I'm sorry. Those are two of the most un-ergonomical, thoughtless and unappealing helms I've ever seen on an offshore boat.

Looks like the talent has left Cigarette
The new 'dragon" is what cigs should evolve into
Maybe Martin or Lip-Ship will step in & help Cig with direction ??

Truth is, I doubt that they're listening...When the Stealth boat came out last year the reviews were mixed at best, and to repeat that performance times 3 just proves my point.

Someone please tell me what they are hoping to achieve here, because I'm lost.

I agree with birdog and when Jackie started that last post, I expected to see something great...I seriously doubt Martin and Lipshutz have influenced these designs and would hope they would weigh in at Cigarette and tell them what the customer REALLY wants.

C'mon Cigarette...remember your roots. Build a rock solid boat that will run in anything...leave the digital navigation, redundant GPS/LORAN/Chart Plotters, etc to the fish boats...

And while your at it, build a fishboat...the 33 Open was a great boat and there's no question that the market exists for this type of boat...

I'm about 5'10' and I could not see over the console in the new Rough Rider.
I have my sites on the Dragon.
