Default Final inspection before shipping

Went to the the Factory for the last time (for this boat anyway) to go over everything before shipping.

Cigarette has been fantastic to work with. They did everything I asked for no matter how out of the ordinary. The first paint scheme just wasn't right and Gus and Neill worked with me to make it how it is now.

I have owned three boats. All three were custom ordered. This was the best customer experience I have ever had in the marine industry! The quality of construction is beyond compare.

Now for pics. Bear with me, I am showing off our new baby!

These guys were fantastic. They were very professional. I did catch them on "casual Friday" though. Never thought I would say this but I am the tall one.

I will happily do business with them again!

Congratulations on your new boat! It`s great to hear of a company that goes the extra distance to make the purchase of a boat a pleasurable experience.

I can't stress this enough. Every time I wanted to do something different like the Red gel coat bottom, swapping the sides the engines were on, cutting the wind deflector to a custom shape or changing the paint scheme half way though production, the reaction was always the same, "no problem" "what ever you want".

I am SO used to "you don't want to do that" "it will ruin the boat" or the classic "OK, but it will cost you".

Never once heard any of that.

PS. Also need to thank Myco, Phil Lipshultz and Bob Luellen. They all worked to make this a great experience, but is Cigarette is simply the best.
