Default how many MTI's in the states vs overseas

So i got into an arguement with a buddy of mine and he thinks most MTIs are sent overseas. I assured him that majority of the MTI owners were based in the states.

This just made me curious. How many of these fancy boats get sent overseas? Ive read that fuel/motor taxes were outrageos overseas so i would assume you would only see the high end boats out there.

can someone shed some light on this subject

thanks

Call me an idiot but i dont get it

I meant the more expensive boats MTI, Skater, Cigarette, Outerlimits, and so on. I wouldnt expect to see a Baja or Fountain over there.

I got it, its a joke as it means that an MTI wouldnt be at the high end. I saw a Nortech i.e. at the andalusian coast.
