Cigarette Racing 52 Thunder Cigarette Racing has a new boat and it is called the Cigarette 52 Thunder. In the last few years the news cycle has been preoccupied by the 59 Tirranna from this builder. It is good to see them stepping back at this juncture in terms of length and not bringing a longer boat than the Tirranna. The Thunder was introduced back in June and represents a new path forward for Cigarette Racing. It is the first boat launched since the new ownership of the company as well as the first with the new V-bottom. While the Thunder may not be as long as the Tirranna, it has the same 14-foot beam which still will make it a very spacious center console category boat.
