Project: Fairline Phantom 65

Fairline present the Phantom 65 project, a sport bridge yacht of nineteen meters in length based on the platform of the Targa 65 and Squadron 68 flagship models.  Most interesting is that this project returns the Phantom model series name, albeit in a different dress to what it was in the past. A brief history of the Phantom model series which first appeared in 1974 with the raised bridge 32, and then returning in 1990 with the 41 which at the time was the third largest model in the range, and then becoming from 1994 till 2009 the entry level flybridge motor cruiser range.  The Phantom was a successful range, going up in size to a 50 model produced from 2002 to 2009, with its prettiest model being the 46 which sold around two hundred units in a production run which lasted eight years. In 2009 Fairline scraped the Phantom model name marking all new  flybridge boats from there onward as Squadron, something which stays as at today. Enters the sport bridge type of Sport Yachts, and Fairline dust off the Phantom name for this 65, what will be its second largest model in the current line up.  The Fairline Phantom 65 will have a main deck layout with astern galley, while four lower deck layouts are available; with the standard being a three ensuited cabins plus a day head layout. Two other options differ on the three cabin layouts, both of which lose the fourth day head; one of which offers a larger VIP suite forward, and an other option offering an utility room. The last fourth option is for a four cabins layout. A single berth crew cabin is located aft to starboard.  The Fairline Phantom 65 will be standard powered by Cats 1150hp good for 31 knots top speed, and or optional 1622hp engines, which makes top end go up to 35 knots.
