The first MB Sports boat, August of 1993. Built by Mike and Irv Brendel along with a few trusted partners. This boat was nicknamed "Kermit" because the gelcoat came out such a bright green. It was built at a friend''s farm near Merced and then Irv, Mike and Mike father-in-law, Delbert Briscoe towed it across the country for the WaterSki magazine test.
1993 saw the introduction of the signature series boats from MB.
1994. At this point in time MB was still a very small, very family-run business with Caren doing all the paperwork and answering the phones from a desk right on the factory floor, and Mike and his father Irv worked side by side, day and night with a few other artisans building boats by hand.
Victory Party, 1974. Irv Brendel''s "Hot Damn Hondo 006" broke records and won races in Long Beach and Oakland. In fact they broke and set every record in NDBA, APBA and UMI making history in the racing books and making them legends in their own time. Mike was the driver of that boat and was elected to the Gulf Hall of Fame as a result of those runs.
