This year’s Miami International Boat Show will hold special significance in the fact that Miami Vice star, James “Sonny” Crockett’s 1986 Wellcraft 38KV Scarab will be featured at the main entrance for all to see.
This famous performance boat that epitomized the action, adventure and thrills of the iconic 1980s hit television show is the one and only original “filming boat” used to hunt down and apprehend drug lords on the show. After extensive restoration over a period of many years, this multi-million dollar craft in perfect condition and one of the most iconic boats to date due not only to its famous background but because of its unparalleled craftsmanship and design. This craft is simply irreplaceable. It takes its rightful place as the most sought-after boat and collectible in history, verified with the original plaque from Universal Studios as well as the original certificate from Wellcraft.
The nostalgia overload doesn’t just stop there. Along with the Scarab, the show will also feature the accompanying Miami Vice Daytona car built by McBurnie and Carl Roberts. The Ferrari Daytona Spyder will sit alongside its partner, sure to gather a massive crowd of true enthusiasts. Boat and car supplied courtesy of David Martino of Fort Lauderdale.
