With a little more than two weeks to go until the Super Boat International Offshore World Championships Nov. 6-13 in Key West, Fla., a team from New Zealand is gearing up for victory in the island paradise.
MTI Catamarans ripped through the waves this past weekend at the 2016 SBI National Championship!

Check out the gallery, below,…
Marine Technology Inc. is thrilled to announce that the MTI Fleet thrilled spectators with fantastic performances at the 2016 Clearwater Super Boat National Championship over the weekend! Based on unofficial results, the #03 Wake Effects MTI Took SBI National Championship Title and #3 CMS Offshore Racing MTI took FIRST PLACE in the Clearwater Grand Prix for the Superboat Unlimited Class!
The Wake Effects MTI Catamaran will be just one of the six Superboat Unlimited-class teams on the water for this weekend’s Super Boat National Championships in Clearwater, Fla. There are 28 teams signed up on the Superboat Unlimited-class teams entry list as of September 19, 2016. Several MTI catamarans will be making a splash in Clearwater Florida, including 03 Wake Effects with driver Rusty Rahm, 3 CMS with driver Bob Bull, 7 Team CRC – Sunlight Supply with driver Gary Ballough, and 33 Sailor Jerry/AutoNation with driver Todd Beckman.
The MTI–V 42 was featured on The Boat Show earlier this year. The Boat Show spotlight of our Slot V 42 features many of the highly-favored attributes of the boat, ranging from the latest in boating technology and innovative design, to speed and motor specs, and more! The Boat Show publishes an array of videos focused on on–the–water tests, reports from national and international boat shows, visits to shipyards, boating technology, everyday boat repair and maintenance tips, races, events, celebrities, cooking, safety, charters, and more!
The team’s new boat is an MTI 52-footer that accommodates six people strapped into custom-designed suspension seats in the enclosed cockpit. It flies the Aqua-Mania name and has six fuel tanks with an overall capacity of 1,016 gallons. Power is provided by twin turbine engines maintained mated to BPM surface drives. Merola asked MTI to raise the tunnel by 2 inches to help spill the air when the boat hits extremely high speeds. It must have worked because the second time out, with six people aboard, he and Rosen hit 201 mph.
The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is essentially a home event for Marine Technology Inc, and always a highly-anticipated one at that. The presence of MTI was felt all across the lake, as catamarans and v–bottoms alike hit the water for a LOTO Shootout Fun Run. Check out the video footage below for a glimpse…
Check out the Wake Effects / CMS Offshore Racing video highlights of the 2016 Super Boat International Mentor Grand Prix! Despite a mechanical issue on Lap 9, the #03 piloted by Rusty Rahm and Jeff Harris had strong pace and fast cornering speed. Together with a difference in prop choice, that made for some very…
Beginning with the Wednesday evening Shootout on the Strip—the huge boat display on Bagnell Dam Strip in Lake Ozarks, Mo., that is part of the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout—the team at Wake Effects, the local MTI dealer, has been running full-steam ahead, and will continue through the weekend.
On Sunday August 7th, 2016, the Great Lakes Grand Prix in Michigan City was held at Washington Park Beach, and participants included Marine Technology Inc.!
The 03 Wake Effects Catamaran proved, once again, exactly what it is capable of—an impressive win. In Michigan City, 03 Wake Effects was neck and neck with their competition, but drivers Rusty Rahm and Jeff Harris were able to dominate the race and take home first place!
When Team CRC ran over the back of the #03 CMS MTI Catamaran during the 2015 Super Boat International Key West World Championship races, the team knew some major repairs had to be done before the boat could hit the course once again.
Like anyone who jumps into the cockpit of an offshore raceboat for the first time—let alone a 48-foot catamaran with twin 1,650-hp engines—the experience was quite eye-opening for Rusty Rahm, who owns Wake Effects in Osage Beach, Mo.
These MTI catamarans gave their competition a run for their money. Check out highlights from the race and what the drivers had to say. Sunday’s performances of three Superboat Unlimited-class teams during the Super Boat International Marathon Grand Prix in the Florida Keys surely left their competitors wondering if there’s something special in the water at the Lake of the Ozarks.
This past weekend, #03 Wake Effects, #3 CMS Motorsports, and #7 Team CRC – Sunlight Supply Offshore Race Teams gave incredible performances and dominated the Superboat Unlimited Class at the 2016 Marathon Super Boat Grand Prix.
