I would prefer the Cigarette. I couldn't possibly afford to maintain the 1,000's I would need in the Apache to run in the high 90's. A TS Cig (38 or 42) would run high 90's with alot less power. This is my "practical" thinking.

If money was no object, I would go for the Apache. They do have an awesome ride.

Apache. . . .

It's the exclusivity, the 'Outlaw' heritage, the racing heritage, the mystique of the marque. . . . and owning the "baddest of the bad" in offshore v-hulls. No hull in the Cigarette line ( or any other line ) can approach the nearly mythical status of the 41 Apaches.

Chris if you had to chose between Cig or Apache which one would it be? If neither then put neither.

i agree with everyone that votes for cig and apache. like i always say when people talk about the best boat lines ,best offshore boats i always say "cig or apache enough said" ,but every kinda of speed boat is always referred as a cig even if it was made in your backyard, and it takes a lot to earn that respect and recognition . i do think that apache hold the value more then a cig, for ex one of my all time favorite apache is "tonto" and i would guess if he was to sell his boat he would sell in the upper 200's and it's a boat that is at least 13 yrs old (if i'm correct) and yes it will take him a while but in the long run he will get it. the one thing i do like more about apache is that due to the fact that not so many were built, so every single one of them has it's own piece of history. but i would go with the cig ya just can't add a # 1 to the side of the boat without earning it.

theres no other ride like an apache, if you have had the chance to drive one your answer to the question would be fairly easy. NOTHING RIDES LIKE AN APACHE

I can tell you I LOVE cigs and think there isn't a finer boat around...except ONE . If money is no object I would take a 41' Apache with #6 SSM dry sumps and some 1200HP's.

As a matter of fact I can tell you the exact one I want...GOSTRUNNER...that has been my favorite boat for a long time...just too much money to maintain. Apache has an unbelievable racing legacy and real boat people know Apache .
