Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing presented the all-new Cigarette 41’ Nighthawk AMG Black Series special edition boat alongside the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. As the 13th boat jointly developed in this longstanding partnership, it comes latest in an impressive line of highly exclusive special edition performance boats. Combining performance with iconic design and luxurious features, the 41’ Nighthawk boasts of exclusivity and craftsmanship unlike any other performance boat in its segment.
Like the AMG GT Black Series, this special edition boat also sets new standards in performance. It is the first in its model range to feature five racing-grade outboard engines, all of which are a 4.6-liter V8 Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines creating 450 peak propshaft horswpower, each. The combined 2,250 output accelerates this boat to a top speed of more than 145kmph while offering comfort for more than 10 people onboard.
The eye-catching Magmabeam orange and black exterior of this special edition is influenced by the AMG GT Black Series, and also offers optional orange elements in its interior. This is further enhanced by small AMG logos painted towards the bow of the boat, each of which is individually painted – there are no decals. The center trim pieces of the engine cowlings are also painted in Magmabeam orange, uniting the distinctive aesthetic from bow to stern. The layout of the Cigarette 41’ Nighthawk AMG Black Series focuses around a central console with a helm and cabin in the center of the boat, with the ability to walk around on both sides, and an open bow for seating up front.
The interior is primarily grey and black, with distinctive orange detailing, uniting the exterior color scheme with the attractive interior design. The vessel also features the unique Cigarette Cool upholstery, which dissipates heat so that dark colors can remain comfortable, even when exposed to consistent sun and heat. The forward helm seating consists of two rows (three seats per row), with the front row featuring height adjustability, enabling the captain to achieve an ideal yet personalized seat height for spirited boating. The 41’ Nighthawk AMG Edition also impresses with its advanced control-interface design. By reducing the total weight of cables within the boat, the overall weight of the boat is also lowered, enabling higher performance. A lithium-ion battery system further reduces weight, providing high power density, better durability and lower maintenance.
There’s an Audio Marine audio system with an advanced lighting system, and a bow thruster as well. Additional Garmin multifunctional displays are located at the aft seating and bow, providing guests with easy access to the digital switching system to control lighting, stereo, chart plotting, and other amenities. Loaded with the latest technology, the 41’ Nighthawk AMG Black Series is truly as luxurious as it is thrilling to drive.

Whether on water or on land, Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing are united by their focus on delivering the ultimate in performance. The special edition boats from this unique partnership share the same interpretation of Performance Luxury – the brand aesthetic that has been defined for Mercedes-AMG. This turns them into a perfect technological and optical match.
