While mid-summer is traditionally among the slowest times of the boat-building year, Marine Technology, Inc., in Wentzville, Mo., reportedly is swamped with orders for its custom high-performance catamarans and center consoles. That’s the word from company principal Randy Scism, who said MTI has added 20 employees in the past six months—working six days a week—to help handle the increase in business.
On the cat side, Scism said the company has 44-, 48- and 52-footers in production, with “orders behind them.” While MTI is getting orders for its cats with twin Mercury Racing 1100 and 1650 Race engines, most are going out the door with the company’s 1350 mills.
MTI typically builds 10 to 12 boats a year, according to Scism. He said that the company is shooting for a 50-percent increase in business this year, and he credits the sharp increase in orders so far to “pent-up demand.”
One of our more recent product deliveries went to the Revis’, from South Carolina. MTI would like to thank our friends Fred and Judy Revis for their wonderful southern hospitality!
We delivered the Revis’ new 40 R/P to their home on Lake Murray in central SC, and we think we enjoyed the delivery as much as Fred and Judy.
Check out a few shots of their beautiful new MTI below!
