if he is smart he will take it as slow as possible. building a race cat is a whole different world than a performance yacht. think back to the ill fated 63' Fountain. millions of dollars wasted for an ill concieved product due to the thinking that "its just a bigger version of what we build now". given the right amount of time and the right personel behind it I think in the end it will be a far better product than getting it to market based on a specific date.

Totally agree, and I think that's what John Cosker is doing. It's worth noting that he has a lot more big boat experience than most would-be yacht builders coming from the go-fast side, including work with the late Tom Gentry on the Gentry Eagle. He's definitely not just bumping up the scale.

Mystic has alot of experince with building Hi-performance yachts.

http://www.mysticpowerboats.com/

Check out the SL70, C55 and the C62. I have been all 3 with the SL70 being the slowest @ 80+ MPH.

Check out their website.

dont get me wrong I wasnt saying that they cant build them just that sometimes self imposed deadlines or goals can get in the way of building the product you really wanted. trying to make a certain show when EVERYTHING is not in order may reflect worse than waiting and making the presentation you really want. Mystic as always put out a great product and it shows that they want to keep it that way.
