With D6 Volvo Penta diesel engines and Volvo out-drives this yacht was designed to travel at planning speeds up to 29 kts WOT and cruise at 24 kts comfortably or run very economically at trawler speeds of 8 kts. Either way you enjoy being on the water Skebanga will take you there in grand style. The classic trawler style with all the teak interior will appeal to the traditional yachtsman and his or her crew. The shallow draft of this vessel at 3' 2" makes her a perfect Chesapeake Bay, FL, Intra-coastal or Great Loop candidate, she is a versatile vessel. The standard bow thruster in combination with the dual control drives will make docking a snap as you can position her with ease into almost any docking position.
Skebanga combines long distance travel opportunities at trawler speeds of 6-8 kts with true fuel efficiency while also offering 24 kts of cruising fun if you want. She also offers accommodations you would find on a much larger vessel.
- 39' Island Pilot Overview
- With D6 Volvo Penta diesel engines and Volvo out-drives this yacht was designed to travel at planning speeds up to 27 kts WOT and cruise at 24 kts comfortably or run very economically at trawler speeds of 8 kts. Either way you enjoy being on the water Skebanga will take you there in grand style. The classic trawler style with all the teak interior will appeal to the traditional yachtsman and his or her crew. The shallow draft of this vessel at 3' 2" makes her a perfect Chesapeake Bay, FL, Intra-coastal or Great Loop candidate, she is a versatile vessel. The standard bow thruster in combination with the dual control drives will make docking a snap as you can position her with ease into almost any docking position. Skebanga combines long distance travel opportunities at trawler speeds of 6-8 kts with true fuel efficiency while also offering 25 kts of cruising fun if you want. She also offers accommodations you would find on a much larger vessel. Note the customization features including; a swim platform, teak treads on the bridge ladder, fold down radar and satellite arch and the design of the guest cabin which also serves as a navigational station or desk. The interiors were custom designed by Donna Christhilf (Annapolis Boat Interiors) including all linens and towels. The boat has been kept on a lift since purchased new.

- 39' Island Pilot Accommodations
- Skebanga has a total of two cabins. The first is large master stateroom forward with generous access to both sides of the berth. This stateroom has over 6' of head room with separate sink and head, 2x hanging closets and large drawers under the bed for storage. A flat screen TV is mounted in perfect position for the owner's viewing pleasure. The second cabin provides a full size desk and work area for computer access and an "L" shaped settee. This cabin has another flat screen TV & hanging locker with a clever privacy door and many storage compartments. The large helm windows 37"x 60" provide plenty of extra natural light which is carried down into the living quarters by open area behind the helm area constructed in a way that adds a sense of volume to the inside of the vessel.
- 39 Island Pilot Aft Deck Area, Engine Room & Salon access
- Beneath the cockpit is a big argument for stern drives. Since the engines are up against the transom, much of the eight-foot-long space is available for other things, like the standard genset. Three side-by-side hatches provide full-beam access; you could easily pull both engines, yet you’d never need to, because once you step down inside, you have 2'4" between the motors and on each side. Since there’s no exhaust plumbing and no main engine-intake strainers (both water and exhaust go through the drives), the D-350s really look lost. The genset raw water strainer and the Racor fuel filters are right in front of you. Under the salon floor you will find generous access to the freezer, washer/dryer combo, battery banks and many of the AC and thur hull seacocks that make for easy maintenance.

- 39 Island Pilot General construction observations
- The laminate appeares to be well executed, with generous mat overlaps in high-stress areas and no exposed raw edges, and the cherry joinery was well crafted and well finished. Both plumbing (fuel lines are copper) and electrical systems seemed to be thoughtfully engineered and executed—exceeding many domestic boats. The quality of the exterior gelcoat is good—not a flaw in the standard blue hull—you'll find a nonskid pattern forward on the deck and gunwal surfaces. Skebanga's profile is different, purportedly inspired by pilot boats that must go out in all weather, she has a high foredeck. And where pilot boats typically have low centers of gravity, the Island Pilot looks tall, surprising since tenderness is often cited as an argument against stern drives. (She’s not tender.) She is practical, however. Her foredeck is flat and easily accessed by wide side decks, and high, sturdy rails surround her to port, starboard and on the stern. Add port and starboard bridge doors, and you’ve got a cruiser that can be easily and safely worked by a couple. You'll appreciate a generous hardtop to hold a dink with adjuustable chaulks for your dingy, which comes with the veesel, and outboard engine. The aft deck provides room for a small dining set and lounge chairs if you choose to so equip her. There’s no full-beam swim platform, just two large, molded-in centerline steps that provide easy stern too access for most impoortantly safe, easy, hassel free boarding for guests and pets.
