With more than 250 members of the Marine Technology Inc. family on hand to celebrate the Wentzville, Mo., company’s 25th anniversary this evening at Camden on the Lake Resort in Lake Ozark, Mo., MTI founder Randy Scism announced that the manufacturer is developing a new 48-foot inboard-powered catamaran.

Called a 480, the new model features totally new tooling and molds and a completely updated cockpit design from the company’s traditional 48-foot catamaran that was a huge seller MTI for many years.
