MTI Going With Seven-Boat Fleet For Miami Boat Show

Though the MTI won’t pull the sheet off a new model during the Miami International Boat Show—after all, the Wentzville, Mo., company introduced its 440X catamaran just two months ago—there will be plenty of eye-candy for fans of the brand during the February 15-19 event. The custom high-performance powerboat builder will display V-50 and V-42 center consoles and 440X and 390X center consoles inside the Miami Convention Center, which reopened to the event last year after significant refurbishment.

An MTI V-50 center console is among the models that will be available for demo rides at Haulover Marine Center—and another will be on display inside the Miami Convention Center—during the Miami International Boat Show next month.

As the company did in 2022, it will offer demo rides out of Haulover Marine Center in North Miami Beach, where it has a booming concierge business. MTI will have not have boats in the water at the Venetian Marina and Yacht, formerly Sea Isle Marina, across Biscayne Bay from the convention center.

According to MTI customer relations manager Taylor Scism, the builder will have three models—an SV 50, a 440X and a 390X—at the Haulover location. Demo rides are by appointment and need to made in advance. “People interested in demos should call me or (MTI sales manager) Tom Stuart at MTI to set up their appointments,” she said.
