MTI owners recently enjoyed their annual Fun Run in the sunny Florida Keys. We were so happy to see so many new and friendly faces and are already looking forward to our next event. Continue reading to learn about the changes we made and how it all worked out with many positive comments from our guests!
According to Taylor Scism, MTI’s client relations manager, the eighth annual fun run was limited to 45 boats to keep the experience more intimate than it’s been the past few years. And, after leaving MTI’s concierge and service center at Haulover Marine Center in North Miami on Thursday and enjoying a few days in the Keys before heading back to Miami today, the less-is-more approach was effective.
“(The fun run) has been great!” Taylor Scism exclaimed on Saturday afternoon. “We had 45 boats participate this year, which ended up being a perfect size for everyone to meet new people and for us to be able to spend quality time with our customers. Overall it was an awesome event to kick off our 25th anniversary.”
The list of well-known MTI customers on hand for the fun was impressive, starting with the couple behind MTI, Randy and Cherell Scism, aka offshore racing world champion Taylor Scism’s parents. Shaun and Flavia Torrente of Shaun Torrente Racing in Florida enjoyed the run in their 390X catamaran as did one of the newest members of the MTI family, New Jersey’s Mikey Boyle in his 390X. Team Raging Bull owner Matt Gabriel, also from New Jersey, brought both of his MTI’s—a radical Lamborghini-inspired 48-foot cat with twin Mercury Racing 1350 engines and a matching MTI-V 42 powered by five Mercury Racing 450R engines—to this year’s event and had a blast.
