The actual name of the boat is "DE-CLASSIFIED" recently written about on a poker run up north by Powerboat Mag. Also is listed for sale in their classifieds

This boat sold a few weeks ago... supposedly to a Cigarette collector for 20K.
The boat had a 2nd set of "engine hatches" between the bolsters and real engine hatches and no interior.

Friend of mine got one. It is a 1982 Veloce. Boat is built EXTREMELY well. Boat has 7 gas tanks It was at one point rigged for twins but when he purchased it it had tripples. It was busted and then a doctor in Florida purchased it, then a guy in Texas purchased it from him at an estate auction and moved to Maine. My buddy has had it ever since. Anyone know anything about Veloce?

Anyone that knew this boat especially the owner would know that it was too slow. It is just really wide with a big cabin.

How a bout a 39' Squadron 12. (Sort of a Cig). A friend of mine bought it a LONG time ago from the "SALE" . The traded it a few years ago for an air plane . The boat is around 1979-1980... Nothing in it but 3 standup bolsters . NIce and light to carry the "LOAD" ! They say when it was stopped , it was FULL from front to back ,floor to ceiling ! The funny thing is ,it only has stock 400" small blocks for power ! No wonder they got caught ! The boat only did about 50mph empty ! Here is a picture someone else took of it this year . Hope they don't mind me posting it . It doesn't like like the owner loves it much ....

I remember seeing huge deck hatch on a 1978 28ft Cigarette once while at a race. I asked the owner and he said that all the cigarettes "back in the day" had these large deck hatches, he heard that a bail of dope fit inside perfectly!!!

Things that make you go, humm

I don't want to be a drug runner, but I really wish there was a job that I could just drive my boat at high speeds all day. Maybe a modern day Pirate. Then I'd get Chicks AND Money!!!
