Top Fish 39 Cigarette Racing Team with Mercury Outboards

Introduced originally with a cuddy cabin, a second Top Fish model followed last year with an open bow design for additional seating or improved “fishability.”

Both models feature a stand-up head and shower and plenty of fishing accoutrements. The magazine was particularly impressed with the latest option for the Open version, a retractable foredeck that can rise to serve as a casting platform, sun pad or table.

Now in its 34th year, Robb Report describes itself as “the international authority on the luxury lifestyle. Each month, the magazine reports on exceptional products and services for the affluent connoisseur.”which includes the Audi R8 Spyder V10, the Porsche Boxster Spyder and the Richard Mille RM 028 sports watch, but the Cigarette is the only powerboat on the list.

“Inclusion in the ‘Top 10 Toys of Summer’ means a great deal to Cigarette,” says Skip Braver, President and CEO, “The Robb Report reader recognizes quality and performance and that is our legacy and ongoing commitment.  The Top Fish added an attractive component to Cigarette boating. It is every bit a Cigarette — which is, after all,  not just a boat, but a lifestyle.”

Cigarette Racing Team is the icon of the powerboat industry as most use the term “Cigarette Boat” to refer to any performance boat.

The company was founded in 1969 by Don Aronow, the notorious Godfather of Powerboat Racing who won numerous World Championship titles, and raised the profile of his company by association with stars, presidents and kings who were customers and friends. Cigarette is not just a powerboat, it is a lifestyle.
