Check out this great coverage of the official debut of our latest addition to the MTI lineup… the 340x Catamaran, powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 400R Engines, as written by Jason Johnson of SpeedontheWater.com.
There was an obvious sense of excitement amongst Randy Scism, the owner and founder of MTI in Wentzville, Mo., and Tim Gallagher, the company’s sales and marketing manager, at the docks of one MTI’s best customers when we were standing next to the very first 340X catamaran. And for good reason.
The new 34-foot cat—the smallest boat ever produced by the company that specializes in high-performance catamarans and luxury performance center consoles—was two years in the making, and was about as fine-tuned as any debut model I’ve ever seen. From the fit and finish throughout to the handling characteristics, the 340X, which is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines and 15 1/4″ x 33″-pitch Mercury CNC propellers, was darn impressive.
In fact, the red, white and black six-seat catamaran featuring a wraparound windshield and in-house paint job from the talented crew at MTI was worth the wait.
