So you cant tell on build quality etc which is what the cig name is all about!!

bit slow but could you justify twin 500's at $7.70 a gallon ??
or diesel at $2.60 with twice the economy ??

Everyone is freaking out at $2.20 a gallon for fuel..my guess is the gas docks will be $2.75..very expensive for here

Here is the configuration of a Top Gun...

Even the cockpit is diffent in the one in Norway.
I wonder if the boat was shipped unrigged to Europe and finished there...

I would agree with cashbrain, either it was sent to Norway unrigged. or Possibly custom built in Florida of the client.
But im almost 100% certain that Cigarette Racing USA only builds its boat in the USA. The hulls that is. Ofcourse we know the are quite a few very nice Cigarettes running around Europe and behond.

Ok, Ok. I think I can guess what this boat really is, Cashbrain help me out here.

If is a true, real Cigarette built on thunderboat row.
However it's is not a 2002 model. I maybe wrong. the Hull ID should verify this.

But what your looking at is an older Cig Top Gun perhaps that has been refitted and re-rigged in 2002 there at Hightec. Because the I don't see steps and the way the deck looks it looks like a 90's top gun.

In the USA we see ads like this all the time. People have the older boat re-rigged then they use that year in their ad, kind of leaving out the real hull manufacted date. Common.

That's not to take away from the boat at all , it looks like a real nice boat for sure. Hull ID should verfiy its real age.

its maybe a 90 thru 98 Cigarette top gun re-rigged in 2002.

I just looked at a nice Pantera like this. He called it a 2004 in the ad because it was re-rigged and totally redone in 2004, but the boat was really a 1984. You could not tell what year it was. ad said 2004, but after talking to the seller he said it was indeed a 84. He wasn't tring to faud anyone it was just how the ad was worded.

Call them and ask them, they might honestly not know, sure looks like a cig to me.

I learn something new everyday.

This was posted on offshorepowerboat.com

38KV: posted

This boat have nothing to do with a Top Gun.
Hi-Tech 3900 was as far as I know a copy of the older Cig 39'
Not a bad boat at all, but not a Top Gun.
Hi-Tech was located in Lysekil, Sweden in the early 90's
Their program was:
Hi-Tech 3000, a 28' version a of a Cig Bullet
Hi-Tech 3900
Hi-Tech 5000 a 50 footer that I think was their own mold

The company moved to Florida in 92 and changed name to Nor-Tech.

very interesting.....! amazing what information can be found out..

do most people prefer the new stepped hull or the older non step.

I know a step can improve speed but make handling different but what about rough water capability/ride comfort??

Personally,I like the traditional non-stepped hull..it's slower,but,more predictable and stable...
