James "Sonny" Crockett used a white 2006 MTI 40 Series offshore catamaran named Mojo as his main means of water transport in the Miami Vice film. With two Mercury 575 hp Engines and capable of 160 mph (260 km/h), the lightweight, high-speed powerboat is perfectly befitting of his wealthy, drug-dealing playboy alter-ego.
The boat's most notable appearance in the film is in the scene where Crockett and Isabella travel to Cuba, set to "One of These Mornings" by Moby feat. Patti LaBelle. In the Director's Cut of the film, the boat also appears during the newly inserted opening credits, where Crockett and Tubbs take part in a race around Miami's waterways and finish a close second. In this scene, the boat has an enclosed canopy fitted over its usually open deck.
The boat used in the film was designed and built especially for the movie. While externally indistinguishable from a regular racing boat, it featured several additional features to facilitate its use in filming, such as concealed camera mounts hidden beneath hatches in the hull and a large volume of internal wiring for the camera systems.
- The scene where Crockett and Isabella travel to Cuba in the MTI is very similar to the scene from the television series where Crockett and Tubbs travel to St. Andrews Island (in the episode "Calderone's Return (Part II)").
- Similarly, the boat race scene that starts the Director's Cut of the film is similar to the climactic boat race from "The Great McCarthy".
