Default Cigarette 38 Offshore

I'm back looking around again. There is a 1985 model available locally with twin 502-440HP, claims 170 hours, TRS drives, detailed engine compartment, perfect cabin, new cockpit upholstery, trailer, etc. He wants $49,000. Does that sound like a reasonable price if she checks out OK?
Is the 38' a desireable model or should I be looking for a 35'?
Thanks for any help. John Gov.

I've had (1) Flat Deck and (2) Mistress's. The Flat Deck was an '83 with 482s which was a stock Merc. engines with TRS engines. VERY VERY heavy boat. Probably ran 58 MPH with the wind behind you and low on fuel.

I had one '85 Kevlar 35' Mistress and one '81 fiberglass. Big difference.

If you don't want to go fast, have a lot of money for fuel, and need the extra room - Go for the 38'.

If you want to go fast and don't need the extra room - go for a 35' Mistress. Go for the Kevlar if you can find one. They are stronger, lighter, and more efficient on fuel and probably 7-8 MPH higher for the same power which, in turn, costs you less to go each mile.

As you can see, I've had lighter and heavier boats. I prefer lighter for a lot more reasons. Ask anyone who owns a Cigarette.

For 35k more you can have a 1991 Carbon Fiber Top Gun with 525SC that runs 74 MPH.

I hope this helps.

The 35 and 38 are to different styles of boats. They ride different, handle different and perform different. The 38 has more life as it is more popular. cb

That boat, though I don't know it personally has been advertised for a long time (maybe two years) at the same price. I have always liked the style of those flat decks. I wonder why it has not sold.

I'm not sure. Here is a picture of it, and you can see how high it sits out of the water.

Bryan,
So you think this one might have been on the market for a while. It's in a slip at Port Edgewood marine in Cranston, RI. The owner has a business in Norton, MA so it may show up as advertised there.
The same guy has another (much TLC needed) Cig 38 and a Hustler 38 or 40 for sale. John Gov.
