Cigarette and AMG are tied together philosophically; both companies are attracted to, and driven by the same values--luxury, performance and the highest caliber manufacturing standards--all united in their respective brands. Demonstrating the strong partnership and mutual high regard, AMG's performance magazine has labeled Cigarette, "F1 on water." From this mutual respect, came "The Inspired by AMG 'Black Series' 50' Marauder." This inspiration took the marketing alliance started years prior, a step further when Cigarette produced this elegant model for the 2012 Miami International Boat Show.
While AMG's Black Series tops its performance line, The Cigarette mirrors AMG's performance traits and takes its finishes to a new level of excellence. The boat's striking black and white design scheme was carried throughout from the Mercedes color-matched paint to the all-newly designed interior, upholstered with luxurious Alcantara, an Italian imported composite suede-like material that is durable, yet gorgeous and is also used in Formula One race cars and high-end automobiles.
Billet aluminum pieces--over 100--were integrated throughout, customized for the AMG Black Series boat, incorporating a new formula of anodizing and corrosion resistance. Billet is featured on the dash, handles, seat supports, and in numerous glittering trim accents.
The Garmin navigation system is the top-of-the-line 7212 series with 12" touch-screens, coupled with the Mercury Racing Digital Throttle & Shift which enables a much smoother operation of the twin Mercury Racing 1350QC4v, the company's highest-powered engines.
