Cigarette® brand powerboats are not ordinary boats. A Cigarette® boat is designed by artisans, craftsman and engineers, working hand-in-hand. The current Cigarette® lineup not only shows dramatic technical advancements, but also addresses the diverse customer needs that are not served by mass production boat builders. Other companies make “go-fast boats,” but only Cigarette Racing Team can create a Cigarette®. Our engineers and craftsman have studied the interaction between human and machine, and the emotions generated.
Technology is appreciated best when it relates to real physiological or emotional needs, like wonder and adventure. There’s only one Cigarette® on the water. Own a legend.
Mystic Powerboats Inc. was founded in 1996 by John Cosker in Melbourne Florida. After graduating college with a marine engineering degree, John spent six years working with industry notables such as Phil Rolla, Tom Gentry, John Connor, Mark Nemschoff and Fabio Buzzi. Mystic was started in a backyard barn with the goal of building the finest offshore boats in America. The first model was a 32 ft. offshore catamaran prototype which hit the water in 1997. Shortly after the completion of this boat John was contacted by David Callan who had just founded Callan Marine. Mystic was contracted for the design and engineering on a 55 ft. turbine powered V hull and the company was moved to Port Orange Florida near Daytona Beach for construction of that boat. The 55 footer was powered with a pair of gas turbines and ran 120 mph.
This project was closely followed by the refit of an offshore racing catamaran which was built in Italy with a pair of gas turbines. This was the first offshore catamaran to exceed the magical 200 mph number consistently and was crowned Top Gun at the 2004 Lake of the Ozarks Shootout with a speed of 203 mph.
Outerlimits has become more than a boat–it is a lifestyle. Owners have a camaraderie that comes from sharing the pleasure of boating at events with friends and family. They proudly display their personal works of art, both on the water and at the docks, a statement of achievement and enjoyment. This pride of ownership stems from the company culture that creates America’s most admired high performance boat. When you arrive in an Outerlimits, you ‘have arrived’.
