Back on February 2, we were teased with an upcoming speed boat that is the result of a collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and the Cigarette Racing Team. Today, the anticipated boat has been revealed at the 2016 Miami International Boat Show.
This new 41-foot SD GT3 boat was inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT3 racecar and is being hailed as “the most powerful “open performance” boat ever produced” by the Cigarette Racing Team. Powering the boat are two Mercury Racing engines, capable of producing 1,100 hp. That’s like powering the boat with two Bugatti Veyrons. It measures in at 41-ft long, obviously, with an 11-foot beam. With this size, a weight of over 20,000 lbs and the aforementioned power, it can reach speeds of over 100 mph.
“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.” – Skip Braver, President and CEO of Cigarette Racing Team
The interior of the boat is laid with teak wood flooring and full extreme marine grade leather, which is a first for Cigarette. Also installed is a user interface that includes three 17-inch displays that feature Garmin and Cigarette navigation and audio.
If you’re looking for a price for this one-of-a-kind boat, you’ll have to find that out upon request. But, if you’d like to see it for yourself, it’s on display at the Miami International Boat Show.
