MTI and the Westrec Marinas are teaming up for an epic fun run in Chicago this coming June. This is going to be an event where MTI owners are able to come together and enjoy each other’s boats as well as all that Westrec has to offer. Come join MTI in Chicago and be ready to have some fun at this year’s fun run! Read more below about the events and how you can attend.
During a press conference at the company’s display, which included an MTI-V 57 sport fish-focused center console, an MTI-V 42 center console, a 48-foot cat and a 340X sport cat, MTI owner Randy Scism said he was excited about adding another independent event for MTI customers, especially one held in partnership with Westrec Marinas, the company that manages 11 marinas—totaling 7,000 slips—in the Chicago area, not to mention the Haulover Marine Center facility in North Miami where MTI’s new sales and service center is located.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with Westrec to bring this new event to our clients,” Scism said. “Chicago is a very cool city that we believe will be a great venue for our new boating event.”
Scott Stevenson, executive vice president of Westrec Marinas and manager of the Chicago Park District Harbors, was on hand for the press conference and shared several details about the event that is going to be hosted out of 31st Street Harbor.
“We look forward to showing our friends at MTI the Midwestern hospitality Chicago is famous for,” Stevenson said. “We’re going to have several events to see some of our harbors and do some fun things. For example, on one day we are going to take all the boats through the Chicago locks, up the Chicago River and right in between the buildings. We’re going to tie up and have a reception at City Winery. We’ll also do fun runs to other marinas—one to North Point, which is about 50 miles away. It should be a really enjoyable weekend. Chicagoans know how to have a good time and I think that will be clear to everyone who joins us.
Stevenson said one of the highlights is going to be a private party for MTI owners at the practically brand new 31st Street Harbor marina at its new floating pool, restaurant and bar.
“We’re going to roll out the red carpet and make things easy and fun for everyone on hand,” Stevenson said.
