Andy Stoneham and Luis Martins make return to powerboat scene

New boat will be similar to this Doug Wright catamaran

Former top powerboat racers Andy Stoneham and Luis Martins are set to return to offshore racing in a major way, with the pair currently in the final stages of preparing to compete in the American Power Boat Association National Series.

Stoneham and Martins are expected to take possession of a brand new, 32' Doug Wright catamaran for USA Super Stock class racing within the next two months, with the craft having the ability to reach speeds of up to 110 mph.

Both men have previously triumphed during Bermuda’s Round the Island race and upon entering the highly regarded APBA National Series will be able to test their mettle against several of the best drivers and throttlemen in the Stock class .

A recent report published on the Super Stock website, announced the pair’s intentions to compete.

“Prepare for the ultimate adrenaline rush with S-12 Nuff Said Bermuda, where driver Luis Martin and throttleman W.J. Andy Stoneham create an unstoppable force,” the article read.

“Their synergy epitomizes precision and power as they commandeer their cutting-edge vessel through the offshore waters. Both pilots are in search of excellence, showcasing their relentless drive for victory and their quest for performance perfection.”

According to Stoneham the intended team name is “Nuff Said Bermuda“ and the venture will mark the first time the pair have sought to compete in the spectacular APBA, P1, RWO series, in which local racers Steven Bridges and David Selley compete as Team Bermuda.

It is anticipated that the boat will be unveiled in local waters soonn as Stoneham and Martins look to get a feel for the craft and each other prior to returning to the Sunshine State.
