It is nice but also confusing.

Supposedly built in 1994 and the advert refers to Casaraghi and a Class I background but Casaraghi died in the 1990 Monaco crash.

Also interesting that it's named after Doxford's old Cigarette Class I boat. Perhaps there is some connection there.

...
I think '94 is the date of the refit. As far as I know neither that hull/deck combination nor those CMB drives were still produced in '94.

I think I remember that tape and the boat that burnt down was P58 Manhattan.

Aha, that makes sense. Thanks Olli.
