The official chase boat for the upcoming 35th America’s Cup is on show at the Miami International Boat Show at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin on Virginia Key. Insetta Boatworks’ 45-foot center console has been chosen to provide four boats for several events scheduled during May and June in Bermuda.

Scottie MacDonald, vice president of sales and marketing for Insetta Boatworks, is running sea trials on the Insetta 45, a tunnel-hull power catamaran, during the Miami show through Monday.

“We’re honored and proud to be a part of this epic event, and for Bermuda itself,” MacDonald said. “We will supply VIP chase boats for each race program.”

Built in St. Mary’s, Ga., the boats’ research and development is impressive, said Insetta’s corporate Capt. Chris Day. He runs the guest transport and supply boat for the Miami show.

“It sounds cliche, but the Insetta handles like a dream, very smooth,” Capt. Day said. “Even at speed it feels like a yacht.”

“This is exciting,” MacDonald said. “We are in the action and on the course.”
