The hot Sig 45 cruising cat was launched three years ago, but Hugo Le Breton has had a tough road getting the ultra-high performance to production.  It looks like he’s got the kinks ironed out, thanks in part to moving production to US builder Westerly Marine, and Sig 45 number 2 hit the water a couple of weeks ago to the satisfaction of her new US-based owner.  The VPLP-designed speedboat hit 25 knots in her first outing, and she’ll be playing in Puerto Vallarta for a couple of months before heading to San Fran for some fun in the big breeze.

“We now have a yard and tooling in the United States, ready to start on the next SIG45. We have noted a surge in interest over the last months, and expect to close a deal for the next SIG45 in the short-term. We are also working on new models of 60 and 80 feet in response to specific enquiries,” Hugo said.

How cool to see yet another hot design (from another long-time supporter of SA) coming out of a US yard.  Check ‘em out here.  And thanks to Top Gear for prompting the title.
