Cigarette Racing Team 42 Huntress is the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG of the Waves
When the name Cigarette Racing Team comes up in boating circles, most people immediately picture a long, low-slung speedboat that’s most at home blasting across open water. However, the Florida-based firm also offers a line of stylish, roomy performance center console vessels. And at the top of this lineup is the new 42 Huntress, a 42’ cruiser that combines a performance hull, a party-centric deck and cabin, and outboard power out the wazoo.
Mercedes-Benz, meanwhile, has rolled out the G63 AMG, a bonkers twin-turbo version of the company’s newly facelifted (again) block-tastic SUV. And considering Mercedes-Benz, AMG and Cigarette Racing have already collaborated on special edition boats inspired by the SLS AMG and C63 AMG Black Series, is it any surprise they’ve concocted this special AMG edition 42 Huntress?
As with the regular 42 Huntress, the AMG edition combines a performance-oriented stepped hull design with an open deck plan, a canopy above the control console, and plenty of seating. On the AMG edition, the benches and lounges are upholstered in white leather with black diamond-stitched inserts and black piping. Naturally, the bridge features all the latest seafaring tech toys, including three large reconfigurable displays. Below decks, you’ll find a cabin that may not be cavernous, but it does feature a galley, a small day bed, and a flatscreen TV.
And just as the G63 AMG packs massive firepower for such an unathletic-looking vehicle, the AMG 42 Huntress is also ate up with motor. The stern is adorned with five – yes, five – Mercury Racing Verado 350SCi outboards. As the name suggests, these babies produce 350hp each. That’s a grand total of 1,750hp, kids, which Cigarette Racing says is enough to get this 18,900 lb. beast up to 78 mph when the water is calm enough. Holy barnacles, bro…
Cigarette Racing Team isn’t discussing price info for the AMG Huntresspublicly but we’re guessing it’s somewhere between “a lot” and “I think I’ll just get a house – or two – instead.” Then again, can you really put a price on being able to host the fastest party on the water? We don’t think so.
