I’m sensing a little bit of a theme here, as I am once again writing about the eventful times at Marine Technology Inc., aka MTI, the Wentzville, Mo.-based catamaran and center console builder. Following a June 2017 column (read it here) and another similar one in early January (read it here), the pace hasn’t let up at all this year as the company continues to build and deliver its popular MTI-V 42 center consoles, plus two super-sized 57-footers, alongside catamarans from 34 feet to 52 feet.

Following the all-encompassing Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in South Florida last week, in which MTI announced its new sales, service and storage center at Haulover Marine Center in North Miami, the company jumped right into “Key West” mode as many of its customers from around the country are in town this week for the Florida Powerboat Club Key West Poker Run and Super Boat International Key West Offshore World Championships.
Not only did MTI just deliver a couple of new boats that were on display at the Fort Lauderdale show—a sporty 340X catamaran powered by twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines to Pennsylvania’s Ron Schwartz and an attention-getting four-Verado 400R-powered MTI-V 57 luxury performance center console, a sport fishing-specific model for South Carolina’s Richard Bennett—the company took several orders at the show and even sold its demo model MTI-V 42 center console.
