New Brand From Jackson Kayak Readies for Launch With Kickstarter Campaign
Blue Sky Boatworks excites anglers, enthusiasts with stability, speed and comfort
Sparta, TN, March 6, 2018 (Newswire.com) - After teasing the market for several months with glimpses of their new design, the team behind all-new Blue Sky Boatworks have invited fishing professionals and avid outdoors people to test late-stage prototypes to get their feedback. And the response has been unanimous: "When can we have this boat!"
"We have had several anglers from the FLW Tour, recent Bassmasters Champion Chris Lane and fishing legend Jimmy Houston on the new Angler 360 and their responses have been overwhelmingly enthusiastic," said Eric Jackson, President of Jackson Kayak. "They've given us great reviews and some terrific feedback. All that's left now is to put the final finishes on the boat and get it into production for an early summer delivery."

To help with that ambitious schedule Blue Sky is launching a Kickstarter Campaign the second week of March. With funding from the campaign, the development team can accelerate boat production as well as completion on the Blu Sky E-Drive electric motor. "All Blue Sky Boats come standard with our amazing FlexDrive propulsion," Jackson said. "The E-Drive is an add-on. It's powered by a lithium ion battery, switches out with the pedal unit in seconds and it will amaze you how quickly it moves the boat. The FLW guys loved it."
With the push from Kickstarter, final boats will begin delivering in June and July, Jackson said, and the E-Drive should be ready by November, 2018. "Kickstarter supporters will be first in line to receive boats," Jackson added. "They will also be getting significant discounts. Blue Sky Boats are already an incredible value at full retail. But our Kickstarter supporters will be getting more than 30 percent off of that! We only have so many Kickstarter boats to sell so I urge anyone with interest to sign-up for alerts at our website, blueskyboatworks.com."
About Blue Sky Boatworks
A new brand developed by a team from Jackson Kayak and a group lead by industry veteran Andy Zimmerman, Blue Sky Boatworks is an entirely new line of quiet watercraft that takes comfort, ease of propulsion and stand-up stability to new levels. Launching in 2018 with two models — the 360° Angler and 360° Escape — these boats ride on sleek twin hulls and feature a patent-pending, full-turning luxury seat, patent-pending Flex Drive pedal-drive system (with lithium ion-powered E-Drive soon available) and a generous platform for full-circle casting from any angle. These super-stable craft offer easy access from the beach or dock, and open a world of possibilities for those who seek more than current kayaks offer. Blue Sky Boatworks are built at Jackson Kayaks' plant in Sparta, Tennessee.
