A New Era in Motorsport
In 2014, Vector secured a long-term agreement to become the new and Official Vector Martini Racing Offshore Powerboat Team. Last seen over 25 years ago in competitive powerboat endurance racing, Martini is arguably the most iconic brand in motorsports and is known across the world for its successes in Formula 1, World Rally Championships, Porsche Supercup and Offshore Powerboat Racing.
“Our relationship with powerboat racing started in 1973 and the new partnership with Vector creates an exciting new chapter in this history. The V40R powerboat with its Martini Racing Stripes looks amazing and we are delighted, as Vector Martini racing, to be participating in competitive offshore racing once again.”
SANDY MAYO - GLOBAL CATEGORY DIRECTOR, MARTINI
“It is a tremendous honour for Vector to be the first British powerboat team to bring the excitement of offshore endurance racing to a whole new global audience through this unique partnership with MARTINI Racing.”

Engineered to win
Vector Martini Racing is the marine equivalent of a Formula 1 Team and has close links to other teams in the Martini Racing family, including Williams Martini Racing.
Vector Martini Racing is the first powerboat team to officially carry the Martini Racing stripes in over 25 years. It is also the first British Powerboat Team in history to wear the famous Martini Racing Stripes. The boat was unveiled at the Monaco Formula 1 GP, as part of the Martini Racing launch weekend. The Team then supported the Martini activation weekend around the Monza F1 GP from Lake Como.
Vector Martini Racing won the prestigious Cowes Classic Endurance Race in its inaugural outing in 2014, the first time a Martini boat has won the coveted race since 1979.
