Powerboaters took the Emerald Coast by Storm last week for the annual Boat Week and poker run festivities. Check out the video, below, showcasing the stunning Black Diamond 52′ MTI Catamaran alongside the new twin outboard 340X coasting along in Destin, FL, as captured by Bird-iView Aerial Photography!
The Black Diamond was the first MTI 52′ catamaran, and the third new MTI built for its owner. Boasting an air–conditioned, enclosed canopy with seating for six and leather-trimmed bucket seats, this slick vessel features stellar comfort for all riding along, even including suspension seats for the driver and throttleman.
Few boats can even come close to the completed design, look and performance of the 52′. The details throughout the boat are true art… Custom molds were made for the headlight and taillights, the custom steering wheel was custom machined from a solid block of aluminum and the recessed LED lighting across the top deck is flush mounted and disappears into the gloss black finish when turned off… Something never seen before in an MTI.
Why call it Black Diamond? Well, the owner had recently sold his 48’ MTI and did not want to be without a boat which put a great deal of pressure on the crew at our Wentzville MO factory. Pressure Makes Diamonds… and black was the preferred color…
