Remarks
Built by Fairey in 1972 Approximately only 9 Fantomes built.      The Fantome is one of the Fairey all GRP production cruisers, with 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 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.             The Ships papers are extensive,manuals, History, refurbishment/care & title.

The Fantome is a fabulous Seaboat and the current owner has had much family fun with trips to France.    This is a rare opportunity to purchase an all GRP Fairey in 'cracking condition' fitted with the modern 300TI Perkins
