Default Best years for used 35-38 Cigarette

Considering a used 35-38 Cig. (less than 15 yrs. old) and wanted some advice on what years to look for and avoid. I know company ownership and design changes have occurred over the years. Had a friend that cracked the hull in a brand new 35 out in the L.I. Sound back in 1985. Cig fixed it but the boat was heavier than ever after that. Never found out if it was a flaw, but he did hit hard off of a monster wave. Anyway, I've tried to contact Cigarette support, emailing them twice over the last year about what years they made hull changes. Got no reply at all so I assume they don't care about their used market customers. Any info from the owners here would be greatly appreciated!

I don't think there were any bad years. Certain years they didn't make as many. Got a nice '91 for sale, new engines w/34 hrs, TRS, CLEAN.

How much are you planning on spending? That will dictate what year, power, size.

Lucky, you only have 34 hours on the engines? It seems you are out nearly every weekend. When were they installed?

Joe, I'd look for a nice Cafe, preferably with Bravos and an updated dash. What was the last year Cig made the Mistress? Didn't Don A say the Mistress was the best offshore boat he ever drove? Of course, there have been a lot of others designed since then.
