Last weekend in Miami, Mercedes-Benz AMG teamed up with Cigarette Racing for the sixth year in a row to unveil the Cigarette Racing Team 41′ SD GT3 boat. Inspired by the sleek, Mercedes-AMG GT3 racecar, this luxury, “open performance” machine is the most powerful boat ever produced by the Cigarette Racing Team.
The Cigarette Racing Team 41′ SD GT3 is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1100 HP engines with NXT6 Drives. The 41′ long and 11′ beam boat is able to achieve an estimated prop limited top speed of more than 100 mph with a focus on big water performance and weight of just over 20,000 lbs.
The design and fittings reflect the dynamic characteristics of the Mercedes-AMG GT3. A handcrafted interior and exterior, featuring matte components, a teak wood floor and a full extreme marine grade leather interior – a first for Cigarette – was designed by Gorden Wagener and his team.
User interface technology is also maximized with Bluetooth, computerized controls, three high-definition 17” displays, and the next generation integration of Garmin and Cigarette navigation and audio.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Mercedes-Benz performance brand again this year to design our fastest open performance center console powerboat yet,” said Skip Braver, President and CEO of Cigarette Racing Team. “The 41’ SD GT3 embodies our brand’s commitment to innovation and craftsmanship and once again shows the strength of our collaboration with Mercedes-AMG.”
Whether on land or water, Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing are united by their focus on delivering the ultimate in performance. Similar to its Mercedes-AMG super sports counterpart, Cigarette Racing powerboats are among the world’s fastest and most exclusive machines. These boats feature custom-made, handcrafted quality for enthusiasts and are tested under the most extreme conditions.
