Terry Herring: The Cigarette—Fastest Boat in the World

March 28, 2013

For those who enjoy machines that go very fast, the “cigarette” (also known as the “go-fast”), a small bullet-like boat designed for speed racing in ocean water, is an exceptionally impressive object. Cigarettes are typically built of fiberglass and range from 30 to 50 feet long and eight feet wide. Equipped with at least two powerful engines and shaped like a sharpened bullet, this boat is made for extremely speedy gliding. With a score of 317.6 miles per hour, the cigarette holds the fastest record for speed boats.

Those who own cigarettes enjoy it for its style and luxury, as well as its indomitable speed. Some of the most famous types include the Top Gun line and the Grand Sport line. 

Terry Herring is a collector and an enthusiast of all things fast. Among his favorite machines are Cobalt Boats, the 1970 Corvette, and Harley-Davidsons.
