Ed you are wrong. the OceanHawk design was not from Midnight Express. It was designed from scratch and was not splashed from any other hull design. Jim

I might have slighted Cigarette in an earlier post and I didn't mean to. They also made a decent open boat, but I was only slighted because of a used one I looked at wasnt taken care of by the owner. The boat saw extreme wear and tear and wasn't in good cosmetic shape. I am sure construction wise the boat was constructed like all Cigarettes, built like a brick you know what.

But what about the rumored Cigarette center console that's supposed to debut at this year's Ft. Lauderdale boat show?

I also hear that Richie is back at Monza and he'll be offering a 39" CC shortly.

The Oceanhawk was actually made from the Midnight hull, which was made from the Corsa 30. They stretched the molds and added to the hull sides in order to increase the freeboard. Phil has been around boats for 40 years and he has perfected this one.

My father and went on a sea trial on the Ocean Hawk 33 this weekend. What an awesome ride, even in the moderately rough intercoastal today. The boat was equipped with the 275 Verados. The engines were very quiet, smooth and powerful. I have never been in a Verado boat and was very surprised on how quiet these motors are. When I got on the boat, I was looking around the boat and didn't even realize the engines were running. The throttle response was excellent. We cruised comfortably at 40mph and 4000 rpm, topping in the low 60's. All that and the boat wasn't completely dialed in yet.

The boat ran extremely well with these engines. I would've thought with the added weight in the rear that the boat would've felt stern heavy, but it didn't. What surprised me most is that the boat came onto plane without any effort or bow rise, and that was not even using the K-planes. Even with the added weight of four people and a half tank of fuel, the boat held plane down to slow speed without tabs. I am only 5'7" and I never lost the horizon over the bow.

It is also very nice to take out a boat and have a normal conversation at 40+ mph and barely hear the engines. I sure wish I could come up with a little extra cash to upgrade to Verados, but 250's will have to do for now.

I am moving up from an 8.8 Meter Fountain. As much as I love my Fountain, I am ready to move into an open boat. My father, who is paranoid on my boat felt very comfortable on the Oceanhawk. He rode in the back, both standing and sitting and also on the console seat. He felt secure on the boat even when it got a little choppy. He can't wait until I get mine to take him out.

If you are considering a boat of this style you should check the Oceanhawk out. You won’t be disappointed. If anyone has any questions about the boat or sea trial, please post them and I will try to answer them.

Is the 30 foot vice going to be the platform for upcoming center consoles from Cigarette?
