Sunshine, beautiful beaches, and bright lights are the first to come to mind when you think of Miami and its pastel landscape. The city’s essence was captured perfectly by Miami Vice, the iconic television show that captivated North American households throughout the 1980s. Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas were the ultimate trendsetters as detectives James “Sonny” Crockett and Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs. Miami Vice ushered in a new era of style, music, and culture. Especially with the legendary Wellcraft Scarab 38’KV and Ferrari Daytona Spyder. Miami Vice proved to be more than a television show. It was an essential building block which helped Miami achieve its status as one of the greatest cities in the world. Due to its immense popularity and success, David Martino has embarked on a journey to solidify Miami Vice’s iconic status.
Martino, a successful entrepreneur and visionary, founded Dreamstar Productions and Props to help fulfill his dream of preserving iconic movie props that forged a lasting impression with society. Martino recently added the Miami Vice Fast Boat to his vast collection, and its already proven to be a significant addition. Martino stems from an innovative and entrepreneurial family. His father, Larry Martino, was an accomplished fashion designer with renowned clients such as Judy Garland, Ann-Marget, and Eydie Gormé. Like his father, Martino possesses a creative gene, and he’s focussed on using the original boat to organize an official Miami Vice reunion.
