Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing further strengthen their partnership by releasing a new boat that is said to be inspired by the Mercedes AMG GT3 race car. The Cigarette Racing Team 41’ SD GT3 boat is pitched as the most powerful “open performance” boat ever.
As usual, the inspirations the boat draws from the racing car are limited to the visual features. Cigarette Racing SD GT3 features a similar paint work as well as Gorden Wagener-designed handcrafted interior and exterior, matte components, a complete teak wood floor and a full extreme marine grade leather interior. The boast also comes with Bluetooth, computerized controls, three high-definition 17” displays, as well as Garmin and Cigarette navigation and audio.
Wheres as the Mercedes AMG GT3 is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine, the Cigarette Racing boat it has inspired boasts a pair of Mercury Racing 1100 HP engines with NXT6 Drives. They provide enough power to propel the 41’ sea craft to an estimated prop limited top speed of more than 100 mph. That’s an impressive turn of speed, but we can’t imagine it would be very comfy for those onboard.
“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.”
