Named ‘Cigarette Racing 50’ Vision GT Concept’, the new boat is currently being shown to visitors at the Miami Boat Show, where it lines up alongside its four-wheeled inspiration.
It’s powered by twin 1650HP Mercury Racing engines, tuned to a higher state than their application in the 50’ Cigarette Marauder. Also weighing approximately 450kg less, thanks to the use of lightweight materials, the Vision GT boat has a theoretical top speed of around 140mph.
This unique concept racing boat has been valued at $1.5 million by its creators, although it’s not clear whether it’s available for sale.
