Skye Freighters

Skye Shipyards Incorporated, as a subsidiary of Corellian Engineering, began operations as a repair and refitting industry around 4,500 BBY. In 4,100 BBY, Skye began producing short runs of high-quality transports for private use. In 3,960, Skye Inc. rolled out the first prototypes of the Skype Industries 960 Privateer Freighter. While it could easily compete with Dynamics and other ship designs, its rollout during the Mandalorian Wars slowed its sales, but when the war ended, it was marketed as a performance freighter for those hoping to make their fortunes ferrying supplies to the worlds in need of rebuilding. However, the Jedi Civil War soon erupted after and once again throttled attempts to rollout the ships.

In 3,958, the Intrepid Trading Company bought five of these vessels fresh from the surplus hangers. They commissioned the Skye Shipyards to further modify these five vessels with increased functionality. These Skye Freighters formed a nearly identical force of traders for 148,300 each.
