Black Diamond 52′ Cat Virtual Tour
The “Black Diamond” is the first MTI 52. Black Diamond is the third new MTI built for it’s owner, who plans to use the boat at several poker run events in between his family trips with the boat. The family will certainly be comfortable in this 52… The air conditioned enclosed canopy has seating for six, in leather trimmed bucket seats. Suspension seats for the driver and throttleman add comfort when running the boat at the extremes.
There is no shortage of engine, or Audio/Visual power. The audio and visual systems are entertaining underway and at the dock. Speakers have been integrated into the forward deck hatches adjacent to LED TVs, and the engine hatches follow suit with additional speakers to get the spectators going dockside.
The twin Mercury Racing 1350hp engines are tied to BPM surface drives to maximize the performance. The polished stainless steel rudder is certainly hard to miss. 150+MPH is a normal occurrence in Black Diamond…
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…
We are extremely proud of how Black Diamond came together. For those of you that missed the boat at the 2013 Miami Boat Show, we hope you enjoy this virtual tour of Black Diamond, one of our most outrageous creations yet..
