After much searching it appears Mercury Phantom Black is by Ditzler PPG DU9300.
This link: is it me or is quicksilver phatom black useless Page: 1 - iboats Boating Forums | 552493

I have access to PPG online paint formulations & there are other cross-references to other manufacturer's codes on other websites but all that comes up is 'No formulation found'.
If anyone DOES have a paint code they've actually used to buy paint from a motor factors I'd be much obliged!
That said, I sprayed the lower half of the skeg on mine with 'normal' black aerosol & didn't notice any difference so perhaps a BS/RAL or other standard Jet Black would work.

get a body shop to use a spectrometer on the original paint ( 'cut' with polish the sample area to bring up the colour ) and the machine gives you a colour / code

Yes, that would be the next step to try & get a match - but it doesn't always work.
It will give you either a formulation or a vehicle colour name & code of what it considers to be a match.
I SMART repair professionally & have had a few that I've finished up walking away from as the spectrophotometer & even an eye match by a couple of very good mixers I use hasn't got it right & the only answer would be a whole side respray which is bodyshop & booth territory. Learnt a long time ago to get the colour right BEFORE applying the wet&dry
Just irritating that I can find a code but not a formulation! I've emailed PPG so I'll see what they say.

Mercury Phantom is a solid & the other two are metallic/pearlescent so it'll be a bit noticable - although of the two Java would get my vote as the pearls in it are in tiny quantities so a lot more subtle that Panther.
