Default 74 Martini 7meter

Hi everyone,
New to the site.By any chance does anyone know where I can find pics of this boat as in the title...The boat was a tan with a brown, beige and some orange-ish color mixed in with the stripes;..Had the martini glass on the back as well with the name.
.
I remember going out almost every sunday in one as a kid and would love to find pics of one..Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If I recall it Had a single 454 with a mercruiser 330hp outdrive (sticker had the power on it).


Some of you in Miami may remember an island called "beer can Island" just inside the haulover cut bridge...I remember going there many times as a kid.

I had a 1979 7 meter SS model that was almost like new about 2 years ago with the same 330HP TRS engine package. Great boat that I probably should not have sold. Bill

[ Great boat that I probably should not have sold.] Bill I have said that too after a sale, but we cant keep them all. Some time we have to let others enjoy them.... Mark

Nice; ty...a few different trim items but definitely the same deck and hull.

My step brother ended up with the boat but not sure what happen to it...He ended up getting a Corsa 26ft to race the APBA A class...maybe some of you remember a purple and white boat called "Subluxator"...Think the number was A-16...This is over 10-15yrs ago though I think or maybe longer ...Last race I recall was in pompano beach florida and team powerplay ended up running into them putting both boats out of the race..lol...Think hes won a championship or 2 with it...When he got out of racing the boat ended up being sold to someone in the Bahamas.

The boat pictured in post 2, was just recently on Detroit Craigslist-on Mullet Lake for 15k. Still looks super nice.

Mark, I thought my wife liked the 28' Warlock much better so I sold the Martini to a friend who used it for one season before selling it.

Yep, that's the same boat. It is such a time capsule boat that handles great that it is hard to believe it changed hands so many times recently. I helped my friend sell it to a guy and he is selling it now. It will eventually get into someone's hands who will never sell it. 25 degree deadrise true V hull handles the rough stuff.

I have always liked the Martinis. If I was shed of one of the boats I have now, I would be seriously checking that one out.
