The Forenski family, who are known for their custom marine work in Delaware, are “all in” with the MTI 390X! It only took one ride for Forenski to fall in love with the “Big Cat” and his approval is evident for the high performing boat. Read more below to see why this MTI Big Cat has the Forenski Family excited.
A self-proclaimed “Cigarette guy,” Bill Forenski, the owner of WMF Watercraft and Marine, a Delaware-based Mercury Marine/Mercury Racing, Yamaha outboard engine and multi-brand pontoon boat dealership, didn’t really ever see himself owning a performance catamaran. Forenski and his wife, Patience, have owned seven Cigarette models, including a 2000 model-year 20-foot Baby Gun he said he will never sell, throughout the years and loved every one of them.
And then he took a ride in an MTI 390X powered by twin Mercury Racing 450R engines with his friend, Shaun Torrente, who designs and builds parts for a variety of high-performance boating applications through his company, Shaun Torrente Racing in Southwest Florida. Forenski, who owns a second home in Cape Coral, Fla., and is an active member of the nonprofit club Fort Myers Offshore, was sold—as was his son, William, Jr.
“I’ve been a big Cigarette guy my whole life so my son, who is a senior in high school, has always been into Cigs,” Forenski said. “He’s pretty much always said he’d never own anything but a Cigarette. That was until we went for the ride with Shaun, who had been telling us for a few months that we needed to drive a sport cat. My son was sold—right when we got back in the truck after the ride he said, ‘Let’s sell the Cigarette.’
