So common are quad-outboard, performance-oriented center consoles that four-engine power packages appear to be almost “standard” these days. That’s no surprise given the number of current and former go-fast boat owners buying the popular products. And yet in a “mini trend” at Mystic Powerboats in DeLand, Fla., at least three of the builder’s M3900 center consoles currently in production will be equipped with triple-outboard-engine power.
Headed for Miami when completed, Frank Sacco’s 39-footer will have a trio Mercury Marine Verado 350 outboards. The same engine setup will power Ron Szolack’s 39-footer (pictured above), which he’ll keep at his winter place in Pompano Beach, Fla., (his primary residence is in Michigan), as well as Al Dougherty’s M3900 headed for Cape Coral, Fla., when complete.
According to Scott Sjogren of Shogren Performance Marine, Mystic’s global dealer in Gurnee, Ill., the M3900 center console under construction for Denver, Colo.-based Win Farnsworth will be powered by 400-hp Verados, but could end up as a “triple boat” pending the buyer’s final decision.

“Our boat runs so well and has such great CG (center of gravity) with triples—and to top it off it has great performance with them,” Sjogren said. “At the end of the day, we’re building a Range Rover, not a sportscar. If you want to go really fast, you can buy one of our cats.”
