LAUDED FOR ITS HAIR-RAISING LINEUP OF SUPER CARS OF THESEA, MYSTIC POWERBOATS DEBUTS ITS LATEST: MEET THEM 5200, A LUXURY BOAT DESTINED FOR THE FAST LANE
BY ARCHANA AITHAL ROSE
Founded in 1996 in Melbourne, Florida, Mystic Powerboats can boast an illustrious history in the performance boating segment, having churned out several marvels of craftsmanship and technological innovation throughout its 27-year history. Its latest entry is the M5200, a svelte performance cruiser that blends speed with elegance for a supercar experience on the high seas. Powered by four Mercury Marine 600-hp V-12 Verado outboard engines, it can touch a top speed of 80mph (or 70 knots). The 52-foot vessel is large enough to support 21 people and boasts a 14-foot beam and mammoth outboards that command attention on the water. Wind-sturdy features like a large all-glass wraparound windshield and carbon-fiber hardtop are juxtaposed with luxury furnishes like diamond-quilted, contrast-stitch upholstery and smooth faux teak flooring. Below the deck lies a pair of air-conditioned guest cabins, an enclosed bathroom, large-sized refrigerator, and a dedicated hangout space for dining and entertaining.
