Boatshed Medway review the Fairline Phantom 48

Sunday, 28 August 2011

The modern Fairline Phantom 48 long range cruiser really epitomises British Boat Building at it’s best. I am lucky enough to have been on board, photographed and had a lovely cruise on a couple of these magnificent long range motor cruisers. I also have a couple of these motor boats for sale, so I thought I have created a boat review for the Fairline Phantom 48 based on the boats for sale that I have on my yacht brokerage based in Kent. The Fairline Phantom 48’s that I went out on are the modern shaped design, 2008 models and both boats look as good as a new 2011 model.
