While it’s a little—make that a lot—too large to “shoot” the Huntington Beach Pier in Southern California, a new Mystic Powerboats M4200 luxury center console will find a home not far from the famed structure, which holds an iconic place in surfing history. Rob Sebring, who lives in Huntington Beach and formerly owned a 48-foot Fountain cruiser and a Midnight Express center console, should take delivery of his new 42-footer powered by quad 350-hp Verado outboard engines from Mercury Marine within the next month or so. That’s the word from Greg Weber of Shogren Performance Marine, Mystic’s global dealer based in McHenry, Ill.
When finished and delivered, this M4200 will be the first Mystic center console on the West Coast.
“We’re very excited about it,” said Weber. “This could potentially open up a whole other geographic region for us. Unless they’ve been to Florida, nobody on the West Coast has seen a Mystic center console on the water. Between Win Farnsworth’s M4200, which will be on Lake Havasu—and he’s going to run it in Desert Storm this year—and this boat, we’re going to be getting a little exposure on the West Coast.
“It’s a big boat with a very dry ride,” he added. “It should do very well out there.”
Weber said that getting the M4200 in front of a new audiences is a key goal for Mystic and Shogren in 2016. To that end, the company recently exhibited a 42-footer at the Chicago Boat Show.
“The boat was an absolute hit in Chicago,” he said. “They’d never seen anything like it there. We have three potential buyers who saw the boat at the show heading down to the Miami Boat Show next month for sea trials.”
