Built by Fairey in 1973 as number 5 of approximately 9 Fantomes built and is one of only eight left in UK . The Fantome is one of the Fairey GRP production cruisers of a very futuristic design for their day, which like the other Fairey designs has stood the test of time to become the classic of classic cruisers.

She had a steady refurbishment with the last two owners. The Sabre engines were replaced some five years ago, with a pair of almost unused units, the hours run are considered correct as this pair came with the dash board panel. 

A top speed of approximately 30 knots maybe achieved in clean bottom conditions, whilst a comfortable cruising speed of between 25/26 knots at 2200 rpm.    She currently has three bladed propellers, which gives economical cruising together with a good turn of speed.

She has many small careful features to make this boat special if looking for a GRP Fairey. She sleeps six with the two cockpit berths in comfort afloat and took the ‘Owners Club Salver' for the best Fantome in 2009.

She is an absolutely cracker of a very original GRP Fairey Fantome and currently afloat at the end of this 2009 season.
