Bound for a buyer in Naples, Fla., the first completed Mystic Powerboats M3900 luxury performance center console hit the road—on a trailer of course—this morning. On board the 39-footer yesterday afternoon for its final sea trial before delivery were the boat’s new owner, Mystic principal John Cosker, Scott Sjogren of Pier 57 Marine, the global dealer for the brand based in Gurnee, Ill., and two additional passengers.
Four 300-hp Mercury Verado outboard engines power M3900 hull No. 1, and Sjogren was delighted with its performance.
“The boat is done, and it’s awesome,” said Sjogren. “It ran fantastic. We had five people in it and 175 gallons of fuel, and it ran 74, 75 mph on rails with quad 300s. I would not want to pull up next to it in anyone else’s 39.
“The windshield changes we made, the luxury yacht cabin in it, all the other changes—they all worked,” he added. “The customer was so happy. It’s a beautiful boat, absolutely beautiful, and it rides perfectly. No noise, no creaks, nothing like that.”

According to Sjogren, six of the 10 Mystic M3900 center consoles sold so far are in production. For Cosker, the 39-foot stepped hull, epoxy-and-fiber-reinforced model is a major—and welcome—departure from the canopied 50-foot Mystic catamarans he’s logged most of his time in since he started the company.
“I absolutely love it,” he said. “It does everything it’s supposed to do with a lot of comfort. It’s not as thrilling (as a Mystic C5000 cat), but it’s a hell of a lot more enjoyable. I’ve had my family out on it twice now. You can really go out and enjoy the day on it. It has a great sound system and three ‘congregation areas’ with nice lounges.
“I really enjoyed my day on it,” he added. “I can’t wait to build more of them.”
