Willy Cabeza purchased new MTI 390X from us here at TNT Custom Marine in order to go racing in 2022 and beyond! The MTI 390X made its competition debut in 2021 in the brand new Factory 450R class with Taylor Scism and John Tomlinson at the helm, however, next year they’ll have some new competition from Mr. Cabeza. The new craft is being maintained by TNT and we cannot wait to see Willy’s new MTI 390X hit the water next year!
Ordered through Miami-based TNT Custom Marine, a longtime MTI catamaran and center console dealer, a new MTI 390X raceboat for the 450R Factory Stock class will be on the offshore racecourse sometime next season. The 39-footer was ordered by South Florida’s Willy Cabeza.
The boat is the third new build Cabeza has ordered from the Wentzville, Mo., high-performance powerboat company through TNT Marine Sales. MTI will rig the canopied catamaran with its spec Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines for the class, which debuted this year.
“I met Willy a couple of years ago at a boating event and we kept in touch,” said Steven Fernandez of TNT Marine Sales, which in addition to new models from MTI offers pre-owned boats through its brokerage arm. “He ended up pursuing a new order and he took delivery of a new MTI 390X with 450Rs in January. During the MTI Owners Fun Run in March, he gotten bitten by the MTI-V 42 bug and ordered one. It will be delivered next summer. Now, he wants to go racing so he ordered a 390X for the 450R Factory Stock class.”
The boat will be maintained TNT Custom Marine and housed in the South Florida facility, which includes indoor storage and a marina and specializes in rigging and service.
