Mystic to Build Powerplay

Mystic Powerboats of Deland, Fla., will build the Powerplay line of high-performance sportboats and center consoles. That’s the word from John Cosker, the founder and owner of Mystic, and Tom Mason, the owner of Powerplay—and former owner of Midnight Express.

“John is a lamination guru and one of the best, if not the best, boat builders in the industry today,” said Mason. “We are proud to have him building the Powerplay line.”

What will the 33-foot Powerplay look like after John Cosker at Mystic gets through with it? At this point, neither Coskser nor Tom Mason, the owner of Powerplay, are saying.What will the 33-foot Powerplay look like after John Cosker at Mystic gets through with it?

“I’m looking forward to it,” said Cosker. “I’m also going to be helping them modernize the Powerplay line.”

Asked to elaborate on what “modernize” means in terms of actual changes to Powerplay’s existing hulls and decks, Cosker declined to comment. Mason also said he preferred not to reveal specific plans for changes to Powerplay models at this time.

“We’re not ready to talk about that just yet,” said Mason. “That’s for a few months from now.”

Unlike the Mystic’s exotic epoxy-and-carbon-fiber-built catamarans the standard Poweplay V-bottoms will be built using conventional materials including vinylester resin and fiberglass. “Composite” lamination will, however, be offered as an option.
