Here's the first of supposedly 6 David Aronow boats, based on the Midnight Express 32SS(stretched Magnum 27 Sport). Byng Goode let David use the old 32SS mold and David Aronow created a new deck in the tradition of the old Cigarette 28. Supposedly the first two boats were made at TNT and the third was created for Richie Powers by Mark McManus and was a closed deck(see photos). Found a photo of a white one on OSO(below), but don't know which one of the three McManus built, after Richie's boat, that is. Boating legend, late Jay C. Busciglio, (close friend of The Aronow Family), helped market the boats originally.
This specific boat for sale is at the Puerto Del Rey Marina in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, but is a rare and restored boat so I thought I'd post it.

** Priced to SELL
This vessel was recently brought back to original condition with no expense being spared and surveyed by Florida Marine Survey to "Near Bristol Condition" The Boat performs very similiar to Cigarette's old 35' inboard race hull known as one of the best of all time. This is a 32' hull (or 35' with the B -Bracket and outboards ) wich this original hull was built for. This is not a conversion boat ! It is an extended hybrid of the standard Cigarette28 and Magnum 27. Surveyed at over $90,000 , this is a tremendous buy for someone with or without the outboards. Only 6 of these in the world were built and this was the builders personal boat and prototype for the other 5. Very thick layup, you will not find a softer riding deep v-hull in rough water. Runs 65mph with twin 225 or 80+ with twin 300's. Some extras are included, the boat was set up for day charters. 11 people plus driver fit comfortably with plenty of room left on this boat.

This Boat is laid out for versatility. It has a big aft cockpit with removable bench seat for four people, twin wrap around colapsable bolster race seats at the split helm, an open deck forward with seating on split consoles that run fwd and aft along the sides that can be filled in with the removable seat cushions to create the enourmous sunken sun bed or for a sportier look. Roomy v-berth sleeps 2 to 3 people comfortably. The open space leaves alot of room for fishing or diving and tons of storage compartments on board. Garmin GPS with S.E. Caribean card , Keikefer Racing tabs, dual 110 gal fuel tanks located on the centerline below decks fwd and aft tanks can run simultaneously or idividualy for balast manipulation, Blue Led deck and cabin lighting,, full fitted custom canvas cover with snaps, Marine grade stereo with cd /ipod player and 4- 10'' speakers, swim ladder, 50 gal. fresh water rinse, portable head, extra ground tackle, lines fenders snorkel gear, built in and portable soft ice coolers and many extras inluded as well as a triple axle trailer. This vessel is turnkey you won't have to go shopping for anything. High end racing throttles and steering available.

This looks similar to Bill's [olredalert] Gulfstream Cig. Bill's is a 34' with 9' beam. His hull was built by Cig blocking off the old 36' wide beam Cig hull then rigged by Gulfstream. These hulls do get around.

Very cool Mark, thanks for sharing. Bill got such great taste in boats. Love his El Pescador, but this one on steroids I didn't know he had. From what I gathered the early Gulfstream hulls were done by a John Morgan in Naples, FL for Gulfstream. Was Bill's boat one of the ones Morgan did for A.L. Kirkland? Bill's boat then has the same hull design as the wide Apache 33' with a 9'5" beam, which is the Squadron hull based on the cut down Cigarette 36 wide beam.

Like all Bill's boats this one seem to be in Bristol condition and even though it must be really heavy the wide strakes probably helps a little. On a footnote I post a photo of a Morgan Yacht 26 based on the Cary 26. I really like the look of those. Bob Saccenti mentioned that Joe Gismondi purchased the rights for the Apache 33 x 9'5" and made them for quite a few years at his company Marlin Yacht as his 35'. He designed a different deck and I find it very attractive and Saccenti said Joe built a very high quality boat. The Apache 33' x 8' design was bought by Concept from The Feds as you probably know and laid the foundation for their CC's.

Lars, I was with Bill when he picked it up, the seller said Cigarette built the hull but it could have been just the sellers story ????? Bill did get a Gulfstream cataloge with it, & it is a wide beam hull. It runs around 60, but likes 45mph to cruise at. As all Bills boats you have to see them in person to do it justice. Was the Morgan Yacht 26 a Elton 26' Cary hull, or Jean Claude Simon 26' Cary. My friend had a JC 26E Cary that he raced & was a cool boat, & great in ruff water.

The Morgan Yacht 26' is claimed to be off the Cary 26', by J.C. Simon, Mark. It's supposedly almost 27' and has a little more beam than Elton Cary's 26. Here's a couple of photos of a red outboard one and Simon's Cary 26' is a cut down of his 32'.

The Elton Cary 26' was created when Don Aronow made the Cigarette 28 out of the Magnum 27 according to Allan Brownie Brown and he tells it as it was. Aronow pulled two molds from the plug and the lower one became the Elton Cary 26'.

Not surprised to hear that Bill's boat is immaculate. I haven't seen photos of his Donzi Spitfire, but I really look forward to that 'cause every one of his boats are stunning. I'm so impressed with his Fino and that and the Spitfire are two of my absolute favorite boats. 60 mph is also a big number for that large CC with only two Rudes on it. Haven't heard any positive things about the A.L. Kirkland produced Gulfstream boats or his Glasstream either, but maybe Morgan or somebody else did hull and deck for Kirkland? However, Kirkland built a very neat B-Class race boat, 'Turn Of The Century, for himself. Check out the video:

Very cool thread. This Cary 26 is really something to look at. What years were they produced?

Thanks for posting that video. Dont want to steal Bill's thunder on his Spitfire but here are some spy shots I took of the restoration.

I believe the late 60's to early 70's. Here is some more info on them.

Wow ! When I got to post 2 I thought to myself how that boat reminded me of the Cary 26 but no point in mentioning it as I've asked previously here and elsewhere about anyone remembering the 26 Cary and no-one ever replied.
Get down to post 5 and there it is ! I think I used to have the brochure back in the late 60's or thereabouts.

I recall it coming with 2 427 Daytonas linked in tandem . I've just never seen or heard about a single one since other than the brochure . How special would it be to have one of them brutes ?

Thanks for proving that I wasn't loosing my mind after all .

Thanks Mark for the teaser photo of Bill's Spitfire, what a boat! As far as the Cary 26 by Elton Cary, only half a dozen were made, (again kindly told by Allan Brown). Here's a link to the little site where most of us that like Elton Cary boats find info: http://www.jecary.com/marine/cary.html
The page was created by Elton Cary's son James, so I and many others owe a great thank You to James for sharing this wonderful information from an era when his father made probably the best built boats with Aronow's help.

----Thanks Mark for posting the pics and much thanks to Lars for both the accolades and these great Cary pics. I am stunned to see this sight full of Cary pics. The Cary 26 has always been one of those unattainable dreams. I have seen the catalog shots before but have never actually seen a real one. Lars,,,do you actually know how the few Cary 26s that were built were powered. I cant see any possibility of two motors in a row. there just isnt enough room, but I dont understand whats under the bigger of the two hatches either..........Bill S

Thanks for the info on the 26 Cary. The styling is very progressive for the decade. How about the complete callout of the lamination schedule, very interesting for sure. Certainly special pieces of history :smile:

Since Brownie had the Turbo Daytona 482 in the demo, I would imagine that the majority had a regular Daytona 427 in them. I'm not an engine guy, but these Cary 26 boats were meant for the wealthy gents to take a lady out for a cruise in, so wild performance was probably not a priority. I believe the handful 26' made were almost all made 1966/67. In 1969 they had stopped making the 26 and most likely none were made in 1968.

Bill, your Spitfire looks fantastic, but since we got into Elton Cary boats here and Jim jumped in I would be so happy to see you Jim post photos of the amazing Cary you owned too. If I hadn't been on the left coast I would have bought it. Instead I went and bought the Larry Smith Scarab, Flying Flipper 30' and the little Stoker. The truth is though that the Cary was a one amazing original boat and that together with your Critter was an unbeatable combination. By the way Jim, where is the Cary now?

http://www.donzi.net/forums/asset.php?fid=39977&uid=2129&d=1225207028 I have a ton more pic's.... I sold it to a guy from Birmingham that had a condo on Longboat Key Fla, it was kept in an in-out building there for a year or so... I heard recently that he moved it to the Savannah area... I absolutely loved the boat, my family not so much, go figure...

Lars and Smidgeon , thanks for those links and brochure posts . After all these years searching I will come back here again and just drool , often.

Jim , your Cary was absolutely magnificent . I'm so sorry to hear that the rest of the clan didn't like it though. Still, I know what I would have done , even though it goes contrary to the 'Happy wife, happy life' theory . :)

If I had a crystal ball , and Cary had stayed in business , I'd guess that Magnum would have a real competitor in the same class .
