Greg,
It's actually Mystic powerboats that designs/builds/rigs all of the Callan Marine boats. And yes, they are located in Deland. Here is their website, with directions to the shop:

http://www.mysticpowerboats.com/

I've got to head up there one of these days, and start tweaking my HP500s to install them in the Nordic.
Dean

This was incredible, (1st pic), this is unbelievable, (2nd pic)!!

at 4,000lbs for a 50' hull, I dont think it would even be close, Mystic, If it was'nt the fastest why would the biggest names in offshore racing be racing them, Cosker is at the top now.but a new midwestern made hull will soon be on the scene that will challenge for top dog.

I going to make a guess here as to this new cat that will challange for Top Dog, a 2009 488 Skater LP Race deck?
Sounds like a new design from Peter H. Very cool!

That doesn't matter, we can still bench race with the best of them.

cuda,
If you head over to Lake Monroe, RIGHT NOW, John and his crew are there testing the Callan C50 for LOTO! Go to the ramp on by I-4
I can't make it, I'm swamped @ work!

You got that right...When it comes down to it they are all good in one way or another. It is which ever manufacturer that will take care of you after the sale is what's important.
