IM Making Waves in the Boat Wrap Industry 
November 2, 2009 @ 4:17 pm

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The world’s first quadruple Zeus®-powered vessel is making its public debut this week in Fort Lauderdale, sporting the wildest look ever seen on a sportfish boat. at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show is a 60-foot convertible, powered by four Cummins MerCruiser Diesel QSC8.3-liter 600-hp engine/pod units, giving it joystick maneuverability and outstanding speed + range. This boat was on display Oct. 29 though Nov. 1 at the Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in conjunction with the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.  And it was hard to miss: It was wrapped with a mural painted by renowned marine artist Steve Goione.  Design, layout, and printing was the responsibility of Image Monster's own head designer Zach Schaeffer.  A boat wrap of this proportion required the assistance of some of the nation's most experienced installers, seen here at CMD’s Integration Center in Charleston, SC.

Steve & Zach worked hand in hand to create a stunning design that would bring people closer to see what really makes special: its state-of-the-art marine propulsion system.   The result of 15 years of research and testing, Zeus pod propulsion delivers a whole new level of performance, fuel efficiency, protection and vessel control.

Image Monster releases new website! 
July 3, 2008 @ 1:56 am

It's been a hectic summer as we organized all the data for the re-launch of our website, but here it is. We appreciate your patience with the temporary site while we worked to get the new one up and running. Hopefully, it will offer you a far more enjoyable experience.

As with any new product release, there are a few things we need to tweak and polish before we can call it a day and relax. There will be further page changes and features added. However, we feel the site is currently able offer all the information of the old site in a much cleaner and easier to use format.

So thanks again for hanging in there while we worked to develop our web presence, and be sure to let us know what you think. We welcome any feedback you might have.

-The Image Monster Team.
