The MTI 390X is making waves with its extreme versatility, power, and size. Below, performance boater Kevin Primmer talks about his new MTI 390x and how it will be totally different since it will be running Mercury Racing 450R outboards.

As if the whole shelter in place restrictions weren’t difficult enough, Canadian performance boater Kevin Primmer, who many people know from poker runs and such in and around the Great Lakes or up and down the coasts of Florida (and places in between), has to stare at the new MTI 390X catamaran he recently took delivery of sitting on its trailer in his garage next to his Statement Marine V-bottom and other motor vehicles. The one consolation he has is that it’s not yet boating season north of Toronto so he likely wouldn’t be using the beautiful cat at this time anyway.
However, he likely would have made a trip to Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri to pick up the 39-footer, which is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 450R engines, and test drive it rather than pick it up in Sarnia on the U.S.-Canada border and take it back to his garage. Either way, Primmer, who lives in the town of Huntsville in Ontario, is very happy with the boat and all of the custom touches MTI implemented to it.
“I’m more than ecstatic about the boat, which, as far as I can see, is pretty flawless,” said Primmer, who earlier this month sold the twin Mercury Racing 400R-powered MTI 340X—MTI’s 2018 demo model—that he ran for about a year before ordering the newest model in MTI’s lineup. “I loved the 340X but I have a feeling my 390X is going to be totally different thanks to the 450s. Plus this boat has everything I could get in it.
