Technology

At MTI, our race and pleasure series boats are the product of industry leading computer-aided engineering and structural analysis coupled with real world experience and testing in all types of conditions both on and off the racecourse. While each of our finished creations is unique they all share the same highly advanced structural and lamination process which begins with a host of exclusive features like an aircraft grade balsa core structure followed by vacuum bagged epoxy lay-up with the latest in multi-axial stitched fabrics all hand laminated then post cured in a climate controlled environment in a process that is exclusive to MTI hulls. For fit and finish that is beyond comparison, all our interior and exterior laminated panels are hand finished from computer designed molds and fixtures by expert craftsmen one at a time. For the ultimate in strength and durability, our hulls and decks are bonded together and finished in high gloss white gelcoat before custom paint and graphics are applied in our new state-of-the-art paint department. Our in-house upholstery and interior division integrates even the smallest details like fabric textures, colors, and stitching patterns into the overall look and scheme of each custom boat. Every aspect of the construction process at MTI is specialized and only the highest quality materials, products, and hardware are used in our boats.
Engineering and Design
Our in-house engineering department utilizes the latest in sophisticated structural and finite analysis combined with real-world test data to insure that every boat we produce meets the industries highest standards for performance, safety, and quality.

The distinct design elements incorporated into our race and pleasure models are the direct result of innovative thinking, extensive aero & hydrodynamic testing, and the knowledge gained in over a decade of racing worldwide by our industry leading engineers, designers, and racers. Each model is the perfect balance of form and function.
Lamination and Finishing
Our lamination schedule is one of the industries most advanced featuring a vacuum bagged epoxy lay-up with the latest in multi-axial stitched fabrics all hand laminated then post cured in a climate controlled environment in a process that is an MTI exclusive.

After the lamination and curing is completed, the hull and deck are joined together then bonded, prior to the complete boat being carefully hand finished and prepped for assembly and paint.
Rigging
During rigging, boats are fitted with the engines, drives, cockpits, dashes, plumbing, steering & electrical systems, as well as, the cabins and any optional equipment. Rigging is a key part of the construction of any boat and MTI's rigging division leads the industry in awards, innovation, and racing success. The pride and craftsmanship we take in engineering and rigging each of our boats shows through in every boat we build. With the principle of combining the buyer's wishes with our team of skilled individuals, our rigging division tackles each project meticulously with expertise and artistic flare, creating a unique floating masterpiece of engineering each and every time. At MTI we take the time to work with clients on a one-to-one basis to insure every detail meets their wishes. For the more extreme or custom projects we are proud of our association with SuperCat Rigging, headed by president Gary Stray who learned his craft on the UIM and European race circuits, where he enjoyed great success. Gary teamed up with Marine Technology in 1999 and has implemented his skills on both Cats and V-Bottoms, winning multiple World and National Championships along with awards and accolades from the media and his peers.
Electrical and Upholstery
Our boats use only the finest OEM quality electrical components for years of reliability in the most extreme conditions. Our vast experience in the demanding world of offshore racing gives us an edge when it comes to durability and fit. Every harness is hand built and individually tested before installation. When the electrical system installation is complete it integrates perfectly into the boat and is truly a work of art that looks like it would be at home on one of the world's finest automobiles or mega buck custom hot rods.

Our Upholstery department selects the highest quality materials and matches them perfectly to the overall theme and color selection of the boat. Our interior experts coordinate with our paint & rigging departments to compliment other design elements that are being used throughout the project with custom designed embroidery, interior panels, and optional cabins.
Graphics and Paint
Our in-house graphics department works closely with the client in designing a custom graphics package that suits their tastes and expresses their individuality. We also work with other well-known designers on custom and race projects too. Our boats are built on a custom basis and we know when it comes to your project there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all.

Custom paint finishes and graphics are applied in-house at our new 2000 square foot state-of-the-art downdraft paint booth. Our factory-trained experts apply custom colors and finishes mixed in our computerized paint-matching center. We also work closely with some of the nations most renowned paint shops on custom and theme projects as requested by our clients.
Final Assembly and Testing
After the boat has passed through rigging, paint, and upholstery the final stage of assembly takes place where the engine and drive packages, plumbing, electrical, and steering systems plus all of the interior including the completed panels and trim are final fitted in place. This process is time consuming and our final assembly team carefully puts every last detail in place.

Every boat goes through a rigorous set of pre-delivery tests to insure that it meets our standards for quality and performance. Every boat is thoroughly tested and personally inspected by our President and World Championship winning racer, Randy Scism before the customer takes delivery.
