THE BOATS OF MIAMI VICE
Click here for extra Miami Vice Boats pictures

Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) lived on a 42' Endeavor sailboat called the St. Vitus Dance. Except that the people in the neighboring slips thought he was Sonny Burnett, his undercover personna!

But it is the "go fast" boats we all remember best. In the first season, it was a 39' Chris Craft Stinger. Actually, they used two Stingers, one for the pilot episode and then once the show was picked up a different boat for the entire 1st season.

In all the remaining seasons it was a 38' Wellcraft Scarab KV, which was equipped with two powerful 8.2 Mercury engines, which offer a capacity of more than 840 HP. Wellcraft made a limited run of "Miami Vice" edition boats which had the same color scheme so the public could don a pastel tee and join in the fun.

From the pilot, "Brother's Keeper" the Chris Stinger and the Endeavor. In later years, the Scarab would be tied up to the sailboat.
The Chris Craft Stinger used in the pilot.

The Stinger used for the first season. For fans - can't your just hear Russ Ballard's "Voices" playing in the background?

THE GUNS OF MIAMI VICE


In the pilot episode, Don Johnson carried a Browning BDA in .45 Auto. But once the series was picked up, they needed a stylish and new weapon for Sonny Crockett. In seasons 1 & 2, he carried a Bren Ten in 10MM Auto. However the manufacturer, Dornaus & Dixon went bust. So the ever up-to-date Sonny switches to a Smith & Wesson 645 chambered in .45 Auto for seasons 3 and 4. But wait, by the fifth season Smith and Wesson has a new gun and the ever fashionable Crockett upgrades to the new Smith & Wesson 4506, also in .45 Auto. The piece he carried in an ankle holster was a .45 Detonics Combatmaster.

About the shoulder holster. It had been made before Miami Vice, sold as the Original Jackass Rig. The Jackass Leather Company changed their name to Galco and then Miami Vice hit the air. The rig became so popular that it is now called the Miami Classic rig and can be bought from Galco's website and other places.

Rico Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) had a Smith and Wesson Model 38 Chief's Special and a Model 37 Ithaca Shotgun cut down.
