First & foremost, allow me to publicly express my appreciation for the detailed and thoughtful review provided by Carl; and to my fellow Forum members, thanks for the kind words of encouragement.
We at Shadow Marine believe that our product offers incredible yachting capability with unparallelled options at a non-yacht price; though the safety, seaworthiness and quality of the product are there in spades.
To update all of you since our FLIBS debut, the reception of our concept has been so strong and so positive that we have purchased two more platforms for conversion. Along with big sister Paladin Shadow at 170 feet, the 159 foot Mystere Shadow will be ready in time for the Miami Boat Show; following closely the 125 foot Island Shadow in 3 months; then presenting the ultimate yacht support vessel, our 205 foot Allure Shadow will be delivered in about 6 months.
Mystere Shadow and Island Shadow have no guest cabins as seen on the Paladin; however, Allure will boast 4 guest suites; a forward facing, 270 degree view sky lounge on top of the pilot house; an aft facing "ready room" overlooking the helo deck; as well as a full gym, massage room and beauty salon. She will be able to serve either as a Shadow vessel with guest "overflow" areas for the main yacht or as an owner's principal yacht.
Thanks again to all for the support and we stand by to answer any questions or to discuss any and all issues relating to yachting, engineering, cruising or the sea in general.
