Cigarette smell


This is my first post on sailNet, so please let me know if this is not the right place to ask that. This seems like a maintenance question so here I go...

I am looking to buy a (my first) used sailboat. I visited one last weekend that seemed in good shape, but the first thing I noticed when I entered the cabin was not a moisture smell... it was a strong cigarette smell. I soon noticed 2 emptied ashtrays hidden n a corner. Looking at the 2 owners, I can conclude that both were smokers that did not bother smoking outside.

How permanent is a smell like that in a cabin? I would hate recognizing this smell each time I open my boat after it was closed for a couple of days...
Is this something that can be completely removed?
