CMS offshore racing team owner Bob Bull impressed competitors and fans alike by fielding two Unlimited-class Marine Technology, Inc., catamarans in the 2014 Super Boat International World Championships in Key West, Fla. The CMS team will continue that two-boat strategy not only at the 2015 Key West Worlds, but during regular season races—all in Florida—including the SBI season-opener in Cocoa Beach, the newly added Marathon event during the July 4 weekend and the SBI National Championships in Clearwater.

Bull and throttleman Randy Scism, the owner and founder of MTI, will run the 52-foot cat. Driver Jeff Harris and throttleman Johnny Tomlinson will run the team’s 48-footer. Both boats are powered by twin Mercury Racing 1650 engines.
“We had fun with those teams in Key West last year, so we might as well go with them again,” Bull said. “We’ll probably also do the Lake Race on the Lake of the Ozarks.”
If all goes to plan, the Unlimited class will have at least four boats in the Cocoa Beach, Marathon and Clearwater SBI events. The Envy team, which runs a 50-foot Mystic cat, has released plans to compete in those races. Marc Granet, the driver of the 44-foot Victory Miss GEICO cat, has confirmed that the team also will compete in those events. All four teams have confirmed that they will compete in the 2015 SBI Key West Worlds in November.
