Factory Fridays: Cigarette Racing Team's Boat Building Process - EP. 9
In this episode of Factory Fridays, we visit Cigarette Racing Team's boat building facility in Opa-locka, Florida to get an inside look on how this legendary builder designs and constructs their high performance boats for their customers. Host Marilyn DeMartini joins Carlos Ruga at Cigarette for a in-depth tour of the boat brand's building process and philosophy.
Founded by Don Aronow in the 1960s, Cigarette Racing Teams remains one of the most famous brand names in the performance boat building world, and is synonymous with the entire market segment. Cigarette boats continue to push the envelope in terms of innovation and design in the world of powerboats. From the 59' Tirranna center console beast powered by a whopping 6 outboard engines on her transom, to the sleek 42-foot Auroris and the blazing 515 and 50' Marauder SS (with 3,100 horsepower) go-fast boats, the company's line of vessels remain greatly coveted to this day.
