There are a handful of things that we give coverage to no matter what. The annual Mercedes-AMG Cigarette boat is one of them. For a decade now the two motoring brands have put their heads together at the beginning of the year and released beefed up versions of the fastest vehicles in their line. 2018’s Mercedes-AMG Marauder Boat continues that tradition.
This monster of a boat measuring in at 50 feet long is powered by two 4.0 liter V8 Mercury Racing engines that can pump out a combined 3,100 horses. Depending which key fob drivers grab before hopping in the boat, the engines can switch between operating at 1,550 or 1,350 horsepower each. You know, if you don’t always feel like operating a boat at ludicrous speed. Along with changing the powerplant on this incredible vessel, much of the material making up the hull has been switched out for a lighter carbon fiber – dropping almost 1,300 pounds from the original boat’s weight. And to top it off, the boat features a ‘Green Hell Magno’ paint that corresponds to the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R. Prices are available only on request. [Purchase]
