GM Powertrain (GMPT) has held a leadership role in marine engine technology for four plus decades. When they tasked us to design and build a showcase display for the 2015 Miami International Boat Show, we gladly jumped on board. The display focused on their commanding presence anchored in the gasoline stern drive and inboard engine market. The curved platform was designed to convey a nautical feel, complete with steel boat railings and “water-droplet” overlays. Etched acrylic panels featured state-of-the-art engine cutaways, while LED-lit pedestals isolated exclusive engine and marine parts. The idea was to provide an up close view, and let quality and craftsmanship speak for itself.
