If the recent Marine Technology Inc. Owner’s Fun Run to Marathon, Fla., was any indication of what’s in store this year, MTI V-bottom and catamaran owners better be ready for an eventful 2016 season. A dozen of the Wentzville, Mo., company’s boats participated in the run from Miami to Marathon’s Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club the weekend following the Miami International Boat Show, and all of the participants enjoyed their time cruising around the Florida Keys.

Here’s a look at some more MTI Fun Run images captured by Shoot 2 Thrill Pix’s Pete Boden.

The event, which was captured by in photos and video by Joe Marin of New Orleans-based Lumintec Media (check out the slideshow and video below) and Florida-based speedonthewater.com photographer Pete Boden of Shoot 2 Thrill Pix, featured a lunch run on Saturday to Key West, which is where Boden caught up with the group and shot the image above.

Tim Gallagher, MTI’s sales and marketing manager, said the fun run was well received and that the company is looking to do a few more events for its owners, including a large outing around the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in Missouri in late August.

“We’re planning a pretty big gathering around the Shootout,” Gallagher said. “I’ve got a couple of other venues in mind but nothing we’re ready to announce. Our owners truly enjoy each others company so we’re trying to provide more opportunities for them to get together.”
