    Three of us Ferrari Chatters got together this past weekend to experience the awesome spectacle of offshore power boating. A few lucky owners were generous enough to take a few of us out in their Cigarette boats (the Ferrari of powerboats). These are 37 foot plus long 1000 plus horsepower machines are capable of 85+ MPH on open seas. Each hull is custome made down to the smallest detail including the color of stitching on the seats! No two boats are made alike and orders can take up to four months to complete depending on options for drivetrain and graphics/pain schemes. We left Newport beach for a trip to Long beach screaming along the California coast at speeds reaching 90 MPH in three foot swells. It was an amazing experience to say the least. The trip took about one hour in each direction and we stopped for lunch at an excellent restaurant. It made for an amazing day on the water, certainly one that we will never forget!

    For privacy reasons names have been excluded but I would like to again thank the generous owner who most graciously acted as host. Concerned parties can make themselves known at their discression.

    Here are some amazing photos of these amazing machines!
