Mystic Powerboats set sales record in 2009

Mystic Powerboats says it set a record for growth in units delivered and new boat orders in 2009.

"We are very fortunate," owner, president and CEO John Cosker, said in a statement. "We've doubled our production ... Currently, our 2010 model-year boats are sold out. New orders now are all for 2011s."

The company typically takes two orders per calendar year, but from the 2009 Miami International Boat Show through the end of December, the company contracted and/or delivered six boats, Cosker said.

The company ended 2009 with $2.8 million in sales, compared to $1 million in 2008.

Mystic builds to capacity in any model year and has sold out of 2010 models. The manufacturer is now taking orders for 2011.

DeLand, Fla.-based Mystic Powerboats has been in businesses since 1996.
