1979 Cigarette Rabco 41

Shediac, New Brunswick, Canada

C$79,900

Probably the ultimate classic powerboat, this Cigarette ‘Bubbledeck' by Rabco is the first of 2 Cigarette Racing 'Bubbledecks' ever built by Don Aronow (the founder of Cigarette Powerboats). This first boat was built in 1979 as cigarette leisure style cruiser boat with all ofthe comforts and amenities included in any large cruiser vessel, however designed for speed.

The second / lighter Cigarette Racing 'Bubbledecks' boat was designed and built in 1980 and is probably the best prepared historic race boat anywhere in the World. The second boat was a lighter boat with a Kevlar hull originally for Al Copeland Senior ‐ of 'Popeye’s' Chicken Fame and is is the famous original “Popeye’s” Raceboat and was also raced by, Chuck Norris, Malcolm Meynard and Ben Kramer then in latter years Steve Curtis.

Being a proper “Deep Vee” Cigarette Race Boat, this boat comes into its own when the seas are rough and choppy. This has to be one of the best classic offshore race boats in the World!

Both engines were upgraded with fresh water systems and new header in 2018 and the fully refreshed and rebuilt in November 2019.
