Statement Boat to Appear in "Pain & Gain" Movie
St. Petersburg, FL – February 14, 2013: A high performance powerboat built by St. Petersburg, Florida-based Statement Marine will appear in the upcoming Michael Bay film “Pain & Gain.”
A Statement 42’ “Ultimate” vee-bottom high performance boat, powered by twin Mercury Racing 1,100-horsepower engines and boasting an eye-popping orange and green metallic paint scheme, was selected by director Michael Bay for use in the film. Filming took place last year on Miami’s Biscayne Bay.
“We were initially contacted by the production company and began discussing available boats from the Statement high performance line,” explained Statement’s Josh Stickles.
“When I saw this exotic, performance machine I thought it would be the perfect luxury item for one of the characters in ‘Pain & Gain,’” explained director Michael Bay. “Everyone at Statement really helped us out.”
To be released by Paramount Pictures on April 26th, "Pain & Gain" is an action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie based on the unbelievable true story of a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.
