Yes, I've talked to Pete about it, the plan is for twins - unless a customer wants quads. Twin 1350s will run 170+ in a 46, so even though the 58 will definitely not be as fast, it should still be plenty fast with a pair of1350/1550s. This cat is going to dwarf all other existing performance cats, the intended goal is definitely not crazy top end numbers - they've already got the 438 for that (180+ w/ 1350s).

A 46' next to a 36' Skater looks like an aircraft carrier so this this would leave most awestruck... a 58' cat running north of 130/140 may not have the same sensation of speed inside, but outside it would be unreal.

Interesting to push the size though as there were not a lot of 55 MTI's built (same niche market IMHO)

The engines are going to look so tiny

I've been fortunate enough to see the progress of this project for awhile now, and every time I see it I still have a hard time grasping the size! I have no doubt it will perform very well!

Skater and MTI got a strangle hold on the .1% market. Almost a 60 footer, this is going to be a monster, I’m looking forward to seeing it. Even 18” diameter props and big drives will look like RC boat drives

Put your mother-in-law up front and tell her to hold on.
