There are two things today's discerning luxury-boat buyers covet: an accommodating private stateroom with en suite, and an interior that wows family and friends. That the new Phantom 48 has. But this latest Fairline from the regal British boatyard goes further, offering a full-beam cabin amidships and a white-oak interior that wouldn't be out of sorts gracing the pages of the latest European interior-design magazine - real wow factor.
The Phantom 48 has a generous amount of deck space, especially up top for entertaining where the views are smashing. Having said that, the cockpit is big enough to mount a lunch table and a couple of loose chairs before the transom lounge, under which is a hatch leading into the crew cabin. And, bravo, there are generous walkaround decks with semi bulwarks, and cool blue LED lighting for superb access to the bow during, say, mooring duties or, when the clip-in cushions are fitted, for kicking back on the anchor.
