Phantom 40 - Making an Offer and looking for info

Post by DLJ » Fri Sep 21, 2018 12:27 pm

Hi All,

I'm new to this forum as I'm just negotiating the purchase of a 2004 Phantom 40 with Volvo power. I cruise in Southern New England (US) and there isn't a lot of info in my neck of the woods on this particular boat. I'm curious what I should be looking for in the sea trial and survey. If there are any problem areas or replacements for a boat of that age and what I can expect as far as her cruising ability, etc.

Initially I'm concerned about the Low Radar Arch - I'm nervous about the helm and bimini interfering. We run in a lot of fog and at night so reliable radar is a must. Any issues/solutions out there?

Like I say, I know very little about this model (not sure when it was discontinued) so any info or sources would be very much appreciated.

Thanks & Happy Cruising!
