A 43-Foot MTI with Teague 1200s turns heads in Key West as they head to the Florida Powerboat Club Key West poker run. Check out the article below, originally posted by Speedonthewater.com.
If you didn’t see the note in my OffshoreOnly.com column during the week of the Key West Poker Run in November, you may have missed the fact that MTI was delivering a new 43-foot catamaran powered by twin Teague Custom Marine engines just in time for the Florida Powerboat Club run.
Well here is your chance to take a longer look at the beautiful blue, gray and black MTI 43—the fourth 43-footer built by the Wentzville, Mo., company—thanks to the images of Pete Boden, who captured the boat during the Saturday morning Speedonthewater.com photo shoot.
A couple of hours after the shoot, the boat’s owner—a performance boat enthusiast from Switzerland who owned a TCM-powered Fountain Powerboats V-bottom—opted to enjoy as much time as he could in the boat by joining the scheduled lunch run with the MTI owners and hitting the Florida Powerboat Club raft-up just off of Boca Grande Key.
“Between the trip back and forth from Miami to Key West and all of the other boating we did while we were in Key West, I think we drove the boat 700 miles that week,” Teague said. “Our customer was there to boat so that’s what we did. Well, boat and swim. They loved to get out of the MTI and swim around.”
