Rene I belive that the PVC is from Germany. But possibly I have understood wrongly. In any case I will find the manufacturers name and will send it over to you (is something like KEHLER MEHLER something like that but will find out for sure).

The hull is not an exact copy of a Phantom but is based on it.

Have a look under the boat and see how the keel shapes at the very end. If it does not look like this is then is not but if it does then it is!

In any case is a very nice looking boat and it will be quite fast
A VERY GOOD choice!

Hi Manos

I didn't understand that drawing of yours either, until yesterday, when I was woorking on the boat again. I came to think of you drawing and crawled under the boat, and the drawing is quit right. The keel is shaped like this at the very end.

Must be like the Phantom then, I so much looking forward to getting her into the water.

Do you think a 200 HP Yamaha Vmax will be good on this boat ?
(I'm also looking at a new 250 Suzuki, but I do have the 200 in stock)

Rene

Rene, is a VERY FAST boat if the keel is as I described it. It is a Phantom modified hull 1000000%
How long is it??.... and who is making this in SA?
With a hull LOA of 6.1 mtrs in mine and flat seas no weights on I do about 57 knots full trim and with 200VMax (carb not the HPDI).
Yours looks much longer about 8-8.5 mtrs so it probably do 60-65 knots even more. It all depends on the boat weight, prop and engine mounting aft. Thrty put it one noch up. You will see that it becomes very responssive to the steering and trim, your top speed goes sky high but is quite dangerous if you don't know what you do. Can go upside down very quickly.
How much does she weighs by the way 500-600kgs??

Hi Manos

The boat length is 7.9 meters, and it's 2.8 meters wide.

the total boat weight without engine is 850 kilos.

I think that I will stick with the 200 VMax for now, and then maybe change later on.

The boat is built by Robert Chowles (in Hermanus, I think) SA.
I have not been down there yet, but I would like to visit the place some day.

It is CE marked for 250 HP, you can calculate this for all boats under 8 meters in the following way.
((Length * Width * 10) - 33 ) * 1,33 = HP
So for my boat it will be.
((7,9 * 2,8 *10) - 33) * 1,33 = 250,306 HP

Looking so much forward to getting her into the water. I just have recieved the underfloor tanks, 110 Liters + 137 liters + 25 Liters of Water (tea anybody)

GPS Garmin 182C
Sounder Garmin 320C
Radar Furuno 1623
VHF Sailor 2048 ( from old boat ).
Engine 200 HP Yamaha Vmax (nice sound)

Regards
Rene

Rene,

Just a bit of gossip that goes around SAfrica about your boat builders:
////
Robert Chowles is the brother of Wildcat-boss Thomas Chowles.
Robert produces Flite rubberducks, has now made a name-change due to reputation? Hope you didn't pay much for it.
////
It will be nice to see the boat from close
