Sky’s the Limit
Supreme’s V-Pro Sky is for the water-sports enthusiast looking for performance, safety, quality and value, but the manufacturer also aims it at a family looking for comfort and conveniences. While that may sound like a tall order, they are not off the mark with their ambitious description. There are some changes from last year’s boat, the V220 LS. First off, it has all-glass floors, a black no-glare dash, a formed glove box and a Sony CD stereo standard.
One of the most interesting features is the dual-battery power management system. The forward battery powers the boat’s vital functions such as ignition, blower and bilge. The rear battery powers the auxiliary features such as the lights and the radio. So, if by chance you ever run your battery down from playing the radio you still will be able to start the engine. And, once the engine starts the alternator re-charges the rear battery. Another great attribute is that the new MerCruiser 350 Magnum MPI engine is Smart Craft capable. Smart Craft is the new multi-featured, GPS-driven boat control system that takes the place of all dashboard functions with one big-screen display.
With its features, comfort and wakes that are nearly perfect – super solid and gigantic when weighted down – the Supreme V-Pro Sky is one of the pleasant surprises of our tests.
The wake supplied is clean and more than ample in size to take anyone’s wakeboard session to new levels.
Ballast gauges in the cockpit tell you how full the tanks are, and help you balance the weight as necessary.
Jump seats in the cockpit area provide more than enough seating room for everyone.
Snap in bow carpet makes it easy to remove and clean.
Limited engine noise.
Dual gas fills are an unparalleled convenience that allow you to pull up to any side of the pump.
The combination low seating and high freeboard gives a sense of security and comfort.
For a V-drive configuration there is not a large amount of storage available.
The latches on the rear trunk are uncomfortable to grab and lift.
A little slow out of the hole.
