The Performance Boat Center of Osage Beach, MO., has made a promise to “race what they sell”, and this year, the Performance Boat Center’s offshore racing team is proud to debut their brand new Race Boat… an MTI. The team will be racing a brand new 43′ MTI Cat for the 2019 season. Always built with safety and speed in mind, the MTI World Champion Race Boats are uniquely built and designed to win championships. Featuring dual 750HP racing engines and a carbon fiber hull, MTI race boats are built to be lighter, stronger, and faster.
