S H Grainger Cigarette For Sale by headquarters Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
CIGARETTE BOAT MODEL 48”x12” This cool model was built by S.H.Grainger & Co., Marine Models Division, Walsall, England. Originally designed as a display model of the famous Cigarette racing boat, this would make a great conversion project to either gas or electric. The hull and top deck are in good shape (a few mounting holes but no cracks) Many of the decorative parts in a bag. This will certainly take some TLC, but the basic structure is of laminated fiberglass and well built. Unfortunately I'm in Miami, Florida. Asking $75 plus shipping from USA. Any suggestion on where to post this would be appreciated.

Thanks so much for the great Info on my boat. I could tell by the mahogany stand that this was built with pride. I would like to give It a new home with someone who can Invest the time to restore her original beauty. I live In the US, any suggestions?

Unfortunately this was built as a display model with no working Internals. I's probably going to take a real commitment to get her Is cruising shape. Not sure I have the time or money to do that.
