Check out an awesome recap, compiled by Offshore Only, featuring MTI at the 2017 Miami Boat Show!
The Miami International Boat Show docked at the historic Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin and displayed a mix of dynamic machines, incredible power packages and must-have accessories for the performance enthusiast that continues to drive the industry forward.
Today’s new breed of fast-paced designs showcases impressive catamaran, vee bottom and center console models from the industry’s high–performance stables and scored a win-win for MTI.
As I headed for the MTI booth, I remembered Tim Gallagher’s comments when we talked last fall in Fort Lauderdale. His “stay tuned for the MTI-V 57 in February” proved the ultimate teaser not only for the company’s next-on-the-drawing-board model slated to launch in Miami, but for every aficionado as MTI unveiled it’s best and biggest: the all-new 57’center console that boasted a sold sign before the luxury vee bottom even arrived at the show.
“It’s a cool piece,” Larry Goldman, Xtreme Powerboats at Haulover Marine Center, explained. “It’s larger beam, extra length and expanded entertainment area easily carries up to 25 people on board.” Dressed in striking silver/black graphics with a quad Seven Marine 627 outboard power package, this big brother of the MTI-V 42 is set to run in the 70 mph zone.
MTI also featured a new 340X catamaran (owned by multi-titled offshore competitor, Bob Bull) that sported a clean white hull with black/orange graphics and powered with the latest outboard from Mercury Racing – twin 400R Carbon Edition Verado engines.
