Phantom International Flying Phantom Foiling Catamaran
Lightweight foiling catamaran
Speed and stability for racing or just speedy sailing
From France-based Phantom International comes the Flying Phantom, a One Design Class of flying catamaran. The Flying Phantom’s design team tried out all different variations and combinations of foils and rudders in its quest to come up with a lightweight, strong, yet fast flying catamaran. It has determined that L-shaped foils paired to T-shaped rudders provide pitch and stability while cruising at maximum speed, as well as the ability to sail in light winds. Featuring a longer and tapered carbon mast; high-aspect code O hoist on top of the mast; monocoque carbon chute; carbon/epoxy hulls; polygonal beams for increased stability; CNC 7075 aircraft-grade aluminum rudder cassettes, gudgeons, and mast foot for lightweight strength; Hi Modulus carbon foils; and increased beam, the Flying Phantom is a stable, powerful, and lightweight cat. Thanks to its L-shaped foils and T-shaped rudders, this catamaran is capable of fully planing above the water, which decreases drag and increases speed. Look for this boat in the Red Bull Foiling Generation race series.
