Just one year after the second center console offering announcement at the Miami International Boat Show, Marine Technology Inc proudly unveiled the new MTI-V 57, powered by quad Mercury Racing 400R engines, at the 2016 Dubai International Boat Show.
While the pre-production model showcased at the boat show has hefty fishing features, the production model will boast a more substantial cabin, console, and seating. The official production boat release will take place at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
PERFORMANCE AND ECONOMY
This sleek vessel’s length of 57′, beam of 11’11”, and approximate weight of 19,000 lbs (with quad 400 Verados) allows for zero bow rise upon getting on plane, moving straight forward without altitude change.
While luxury and comfort were at the forefront in design of this addition to the MTI lineup, speed was of equal importance. The quad Mercury Racing 400R engines allow the MTI-V 57 to reach speeds upwards of 65+mph with ease. The new 57′ Center Console averaged 0.9 mpg of fuel at 50.6 mph, with a top speed of 68 mph. All data was recorded with quad Mercury Racing 400R outboards in optimal testing conditions. Other power options are available, and speeds are subject to vary due to load, natural elements, and sea conditions.
