I've heard and seen over the last year or so that more money has been put into nice paint and crazy electronics than into quality and customer service. I've seen the Maximus and Stealth sitting at the orginal owners for two years. Scarey. What's the Deal is THe Legand Dying Again????????

I bought their smallest offering and they treated me like 10 million dollars. "You want what? No problem sir, whatever you want sir". (I had to tell Neill to quit calling me sir)

I also currently own a Fountain that I custom ordered to compare to. If you are worried about quality, please know the details that you are never meant to see are the details that get done right at Cigarette. Most manufacturers hide a lot of crap under headliners and carpet and especially under cockpit flooring.

Cigarette Customer for life here. : Just give me a few years until I part with my Gladiator.

As a consumer I look at boats with 1 or 2 years on them and think how was this thing taken care of. Did the owner just run the crap out of it without proper service and then trade it in for a new one to abuse?

I'm at the crossroad of buying a boat and I would love to own a 38 Cig but can't afford a new one and can't afford to buy a piece of beat up crap. Been there done that.

And all the salesmen tell you they were all treated like babies. Yea right.

GReat input. In the past boat owner purchased with the knowledge that they were locked in for at least 8-10 years. For owners to now be in the 1-2 range is amazing. Must mean that dealers are giving awesome trade-ins or these people are puttinga good chunk of change down.

Boat for sale 2004 gladiator 40+ hrs on it. Moving on up in size for something faster

Only joking
This boat is to sick to sell & from these pics I do not see any trouble for Cigarette


I think that with cigarette moving into the new factory they are producing more boats. I have seen that they are more focuses on building 42' & the 46' because there is a market for them.

Yes he does have a list. I have been on a list with Tim G, Phil Lip, Tres M., Offshore Performance, and others for a nice CLEAN, Low Hour gun since last August.

Well, today I finally found what I was looking for. An '02 w/ low hors 575's and resonably clean.
