Description

FOR SALE: Classic Brian Taylor & Paul Wright wooden Phantom sailing dingy.

There is an interesting history with this boat - it is number 10 and the kit was first cut in 1972 - however the owner at the time didn't get around to building it. It was purchased back by Brian Taylor in 1995 and was then built. Several years later it was then rigged and finally hit the water in 2001!

I acquired the boat in 2017 and despite being well maintained and dry stored I carried out a full restoration to bring it back to its best.
As you can see from the photos the hull seams were re-taped with GRP and epoxy. Hull was then faired, primed and painted with single part International Toplac.
Decks were varnished and the running rigging replaced. Standing rigging is original but from a later (circa 2001) hull.
Unlike most, this phantom was fitted with a sail track and has a swinging centreboard.

Other modifications carried out by myself;

Dynema adjustable forestay.
Adjustable lower stays.
Improved kicker set-up.
The sail is a Hyde Sails laminate sail and is in great condition.

Supplied with a launching trolley and road trailer...both have seen better days but are functional.

This is a great example of the classic phantom and is as far as I know the 'oldest' phantom in existence!

I am extremely torn about selling this boat but it just isn't getting the use it deserves and it ideally wants to live with someone who has the space to dry store it and keep on top of the maintenance associated with a wooden boat!
