This lot will be auctioned via Iconic Auctioneers, London Concours Lifestyle Sale 2024 on Wednesday the 5th of June, Honourable Artillery Company. The world famous Cigarette Racing Boat Company was established during 1969 in South Florida by legendary power boat racer, the late Don Arronow. He went on to win numerous powerboat World Championships and set several World Records in his famous Cigarette racing boats which are still built and winning today. The Cigarette design is instantly recognisable throughout the world and their designs and style have set the highest standards in power boat racing across the globe.This fabulous example is a 36-foot Gladiator model built in 2004 and fitted with 'Richie Zul' V8 American engines producing 775hp each, coupled to IMCO Bravo XR racing outdrives with five-blade Hering surface-drive propellers giving the boat a top speed capability of 108mph!The boat was supplied new to its first owner, Ivan 'Putch' Rodriguez, in 2004 and was originally based in Marina Botafoch in Ibiza. It was subsequently sold to our vendor, a private enthusiast with several other serious motor yachts, in January 2010 having logged c.160 engine-hours. He moved the boat to Mallorca, where it is currently stored indoors (and has always been stored indoors whenever not in use), and since then it's been looked after by Nigel Figgins of NJF Marine. Nigel has been instructed to maintain the boat regardless of cost, and all the documentation and invoices covering this annual maintenance are present with us and can be seen and inspected. They total some 128,000 Euros over the period to the current day, despite very little usage during this time. This work included a full engine overhaul to both engines by Richie Zul as well as a rebuild of the complete drivetrain. More recently, in 2023, new batteries were fitted as well as a new seawater pump and the usual annual maintenance which has been consistently carried out throughout our vendor’s period of ownership. It is now available 'turn-key' and ready to use. Potential buyers can arrange to have the boat surveyed, or inspected, in Mallorca at their convenience and expense. It will need collecting from Mallorca as it is being sold 'In Absentia' and not physically present at our London sale, although all documentation will be there to inspect. Please call Iconic Auctioneers Chairman, Nick Whale, for further details. Please note, fresh photos to follow by 21st May.
