Even before the debut of the 42 Huntress, Cigarette boats have served as tenders for speed-loving boaters (just look at the toy alongside Christensen’s Remember When). Equipped with up to five Mercury outboards (300 or 350 Verados), this powerful entry in the luxury tender market rockets up to amazing speeds (try mid-80s, as in mph). But the beamy Huntress (12 feet at its maximum) is not just about speed. Its T-top (affixed in only two places) allows nearly unimpeded 360-degree views. Ergonomic forward-facing lounge chairs near the bow, a side-entry door with a hideaway ladder to facilitate entry, two bench seats aft that convert to a sun pad at the touch of a button and a luxuriously appointed cabin—flatscreen TV, mini-galley, storage, full head and more—with over six feet of clearance, contribute to onboard comfort. The latest Garmin navigation system interfaces with Mercury Racing’s digital throttle system, and the dash accommodates two 15-inch screens, all customizable of course.
