The Fairline Phantom 65 features a wonderfully clean design with a single fluid styling line sweeping up past the windscreen into a compact sports bridge before evolving into a low-level radar arch. The outside spaces appear to deliver a finely judged balance between sleek lines and practicality.
The sports bridge is a particularly smart piece of design, barely detracting from its sporty profile but still finding space for a proper dinette and small wetbar in addition to a pair of helm seats and a second lounging area tucked behind the smoked glass. With two more al fresco dining and lounging spaces on the foredeck and aft cockpit respectively, the Fairline Phantom 65 fits the bill as an impressive versatile craft.
Sliding glass doors separate the cockpit from the saloon and stack over to the port side under the sports bridge steps. This leaves a wide walkway through to the aft galley, equipped with a full-height fridge freezer and oak flooring.
The Fairline Phantom 65 is available in three or four-cabin layouts with the option for owners to choose between oak or walnut veneers with satin or high-gloss lacquer. Located amidships, the owner’s cabin occupies the full beam with its large ensuite helping to insulate it from engine and generator noise.
The VIP double is located at the bow with an ensuite to port featuring Jack-and-Jill doors that also serve as a day-head. The twin-bed guest cabin and ensuite are to starboard.
An optional fourth bunk cabin is amidships on the port side. Alternatively, this area can be kitted out as either a utility space or a fourth shower room and day head. The single-berth crew cabin is accessed via lifting transom steps that caneasily double as an extra guest cabin. Powered by a pair of 1,150hp Caterpillar C18s on straight shafts, the Fairline Phantom 65 is capable of reaching a top speed of around 35 knots. Her voluminous tender garage is able to accommodate a William SportJet 345 tender without impacting the stunning lines of the yacht.
