Center Console boats are getting bigger, and use multiple outboards to get the speed the customer wants. Here, the leader of Go-Fast Boats, Cigarette, puts five Mercury Marine outboards on one of the biggest to create one of the baddest. Wow, five 350 Horsepower Mercury Marine outboards on a 42’ by 11’ 9” boat. That is a lot of horsepower to up from Miami to the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo.

Started by Don Aronow and now owned by Skip Braver, Cigarette Racing Team has been winning races since 1971. Their boats have kept ahead with the bulletproof construction, rigging, and power that offshore racing demands and those same ingredients goes into every boat that they make.

Cigarette has been around in the high performance boat business that their boats went from shaft drive, to stern drive, to outboard power. They have almost always used Mercury Marine power through the years. First with Carl Kiekhaefer, then Fred, the Mackies, and others.
