Sky Supreme 220 SP
Supreme knows versatility is a key characteristic for many water-sports enthusiasts shopping for a boat, so the company has created the Sky 220 SP.
Without the tower, you might assume it's another ski boat with its direct-drive engine, narrow 90-inch beam and good tracking. Yet with the standard Sky Supreme package you get the tower, ? pounds of factory ballast, core riding graphics, and it transforms into a wakeboarding machine.
The deep-freeboard interior is just as versatile. The oversized steering wheel and comfortable driver's seat make it easy to drive for a skier. But when a wakeboarding posse climbs aboard, the surprisingly extensive legroom from the rear bench and the cup holders on the back of the engine box come in handy. Under that seat bench is a self-draining cooler, and the trunk offers access from both sides of the transom. Along with the fact that the deep-V entry handles rough or calm water, the Sky 220 SP is ready for anything.
We found the softest wakes at 15 off going between 30 and 32 mph. If you're good enough to go shorter and faster, you may run into wakes that are more on the firm side of the spectrum. Tracking stayed fairly straight and true with a skier in tow.
With a 90-inch beam, beginning to intermediate riders will have a perfect table for nice transitional wake-to-wake moves. The lip is also nicely defined. The double-ups are pretty easy to get in for riders, and despite a slight bounciness, the boat can power through well. This boat works best for riders ready to graduate to intermediate maneuvers.
-Versatility is the buzzword here as the 220 SP easily switches between skiing and wakeboarding.
-The well-padded interior is set deep for a secure passenger ride.
-The in-floor storage is a welcome, convenient option for gear.
-The deep-V entry smooths out to a semi-V bottom to slice through all kinds of conditions.
-The teak swim platform is removable.
-Grab rails, pull-up cleats and bow rails are made of stainless steel.
