Paragon 28Canadian custom tender builder Carbon Marine today announced the initial list of suppliers for the production and outfitting of the Paragon Super Sport 28, featuring the world's first fully exposed, carbon fiber production hull. The innovative new tender will be launched at the 2016 Miami International Boat Show (in water slip 560, Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin, February 11-15).

Bringing to the water the aesthetics and high performance characteristics of the world's finest supercars, Carbon Marine’s innovative use of carbon fiber has created an offshore hull that is stunning in appearance, while lighter, faster and stronger than a conventional fiberglass hull - resulting in an unheard of combination - higher top speed and superior gas mileage.
