The SkyMaster is so named for its 'Bahamas House' – a voluminous superstructure featuring vertical windows that enhance the plentiful interior space while at the same time diminishing heat and A/C load. And the vessel will also feature Paragon’s new 'Bahamas Cockpit' design – a large tiered mezzanine and cockpit area aft of the main salon designed to be an entertainment platform. The covered upper mezzanine includes a seating area with ample storage, while the lower cockpit features all of the amenities wanted at hand while enjoying Bahamian waters including a Viking gas barbecue, wet bar, ice chipper and built-in cooler.
Designed specifically to tow a large tender, the SkyMaster features integrated tow line stowage on the interior port and starboard sides of the cockpit. It also features a RINA-certified, 1136l gasoline tank and pump designated for fuelling the tender.
From the engine room through the main salon, to the carbon fibre radar arch and the all-carbon flybridge furniture, the SkyMaster has been engineered to the highest vibration attenuation specifications.
Within an interior designed by Marty Lowe, the SkyMaster accommodates eight guests in three king staterooms, a fourth queen-size stateroom and an additional bunk, and includes accommodations for a captain and three additional crewmembers, all easily serviced by three full sets of laundry machines.
“We are very proud of the new SkyMaster,” says company founder and president Scott Robinson. “To say we are meticulous in our design process may be an understatement, but this collaboration with owners who are experienced boaters and who are familiar with our process is proving to yield a fantastic result.”
The SkyMaster is currently in build at Paragon’s Kaohsiung, Taiwan-based shipyard, American Pacific Boatworks. She will conduct sea trials in August and will debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October, 2014.
