Mercedes-AMG and Cig­a­rette Racing have marked their 11 years of col­lab­o­ra­tion with the de­but of the most im­pres­sive and in­no­va­tive per­for­mance boat ever con­structed by the iconic Mi­ami-based boat man­u­fac­turer. De­signed from the ground up us­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and method­olo­gies, the Cig­a­rette

Racing 515 Project ONE was in­spired by the highly an­tic­i­pated Mercedes-AMG

Project ONE hy­per­car. The spe­cial edi­tion boat is 51’ 5” in length and fea­tures an in­creased beam of 9’ 6” that al­lows six pas­sen­gers the abil­ity to be seated com­fort­ably. The new boat of­fers an in­crease of over 30% greater sur­face area when com­pared to the ex­ist­ing 50’ Ma­rauder, while still pro­vid­ing sim­i­lar per­for­mance and an im­pres­sive 225 km/h top speed through the use of a highly op­ti­mised com­pos­ite struc­ture con­sist­ing of car­bon fi­bre, Kevlar, and E-glass. Cig­a­rette will cus­tom-build each boat to in­di­vid­ual spec­i­fi­ca­tion, but be pre­pared to splash out like a bil­lion­aire.
