Mercedes-AMG, Cigarette Racing Reveal GT3-Inspired Boat in Miami

When you want your car and your boat to match.

For the sixth year running, Cigarette Racing and Mercedes-AMG have partnered up to build a high-performance speed boat that looks like one of AMG’s fastest cars. Last year, the pair developed a Cigarette Racing boat that matched a Mercedes-AMG GT S street car. This year, it was the Mercedes-AMG GT3 racing car that served as inspiration for the aquatic performance machine that debuts at the Miami boat show.

The new Cigarette Racing boat is 41 feet long and wears the same livery as the racing car: Silver paint with green and yellow stripes. Motivation comes from a pair of Mercury Racing 1,110-hp marine engines; Cigarette Racing says the boat can manage 100 mph despite weighing more than 20,000 lb. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 racing car, meanwhile, campaigns in FIA GT3 racing with a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-8 engine and a six-speed sequential transmission. By contrast, the road-going AMG GT S packs a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
