When the second Mystic Powerboats C4400 catamaran leaves the paint booth sometime next week, the third model will take its place. The DeLand, Fla., high-performance catamaran and V-bottom builder also is working on a new 50-foot cat that should be completed this summer, according to Scott Sjogren of Pier 57 Marine, the global dealer for Mystic, located in Gurnee, Ill.
“The delivery of the first C4400 cat during the Miami Boat Show Poker went perfectly,” said Sjogren. “We’re really pleased with the finished product.”
Paint work on the second Mystic C4400 catamaran should be complete next week.
Sjogren said that the two M3900 luxury performance center console prototypes the builder displayed at the 2015 Miami International Boat Show last month are undergoing “final design and detail completion.”
“We wanted to get them out in front of consumers in front of Miami so we could get their input,” said Sjogren. “That was important to us.”
Earlier today, Mystic Powerboats founder and owner John Cosker and Sjogren tested one of the two 39-footers. The boat was powered by four Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard engines, which also were released during the Miami Show. (Read the story.)

“We were very happy with it,” said Sjogren. “It ran in the mid-80s and fuel burn was efficient. It will give our customers a lot of range, and that’s something we know is important to them.
“We ran in four- to six-foot rollers and stayed completely dry,” he added. “The reverse chines on the hull knock the spray down low, not back into the cockpit. And the boat was completely quiet throughout our tests.”
