The revolution continues, after the launch of the first production foiling catamaran in the world 3 years ago, over 100 Flying Phantom are now foiling in 26 countries.
The Flying Phantom is a unique racing boat using the finest technologies from the aeronautic industry. Phantom International is now introducing a new range of high-end foiling boat oriented for freeride.
The Flying Phantom Essentiel is an 18’ all around boat easy to use, able to foil in a wide range of conditions and attract new people to foiling. This new boat is based on the expertise Phantom International has built up over the last 5 years being the pioneer in foiling catamarans.
The Flying Phantom Essentiel is foiling with both dagger boards down like we tested on the first Flying Phantom prototypes in 2012. This foil configuration makes the boat to be more user friendly and less physically demanding for the crew. She is able to reach 20 knots in 10 knots of wind ! The boat can be stowed on the beach as the dagger can be fully removed from the top. The L shape rudders increase safety for the crew if anyone falls overboard.
The Flying Phantom Essentiel is equipped with optional side wings in place of trapeze to improve crew accessibility.
The boat will be officially launched during the Paris Boat Show in December, production will start early of 2017 for spring deliveries.
The Flying Phantom Essentiel will offer a unique opportunity to a broad spectrum of sailors to enter into the foiling experience !
We look forward to present you this amazing boat.
