Mystic M3800 hull No. 1 was pulled from the mold yesterday.
With the first M3800 luxury center console pulled from the mold yesterday, the team members at Mystic Powerboats in DeLand, Fla., are reportedly pleased with their progress and are almost complete with tooling for the 38-footer’s deck and T-top. The carbon fiber reinforced hull was laid up using the resin vaccumm infusion process, as are all Mystic center consoles and catamarans.
“It came out great,” said Scott Sjogren of Mystic Powerboat Sales. “We’re pleased with our progress and can’t wait to see it with a completed deck.”

Mystic company owner and founder John Cosker said he does not plan to mock-up a deck so he can water-test hull No. 1 before installing the first finished deck. “We did that the last time with the M4200, and we really didn’t get that much out of it,” said Cosker, a trained naval architect. “At this point, we’ve learned so much from the first boat—and this boat was developed off the first one—that we don’t need to do that.”
Mystic M3800 models reportedly have been pre-sold. Delivery is scheduled to begin in early summer.
The M3800 is based of the popular M4200 (above).
