Fairline Americas has announced its line-up for this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will feature the highly anticipated US debut of the award-winning Phantom 65.

The British luxury motor yacht manufacturer will also be showcasing the F//LINE 33, Targa 45 OPEN, Targa 50 GT and Squadron 50 at the event which runs from 25 - 29 October 2023.

The Phantom 65 is Fairline’s first sportbridge yacht and brings an incredibly clean and modern design to the model range. It offers a huge array of al-fresco dining, entertaining and lounging spaces to soak up the sun. Synchronising the volume of a Squadron, the Phantom brings the streamlined proportions of a Targa, epitomising luxury, handling, performance and space.

The exterior of the Phantom 65 is based on the technical platform of the award-winning Targa 65 featuring sleek lines and large, expansive hull windows teamed with a glazed sunroof to bathe the interior with natural light. It also boasts a tender garage suitable for a Williams 345 SportJet and offers two engine options - twin Caterpillar C18-1150’s with 31-knot performance, or twin V12 Caterpillar C32-1622’s reaching 38 knots.

The main deck of the Phantom 65 is made for flexible entertaining. It brings the owner an abundance of usable spaces, from generous dining to comfortable saloon seating. At its core, the Phantom 65 offers effortless flow, blending seamlessly from one space to another, creating a haven of tranquillity to relax in.

Steve Leeson, President of Fairline Americas, comments: “We are excited to bring the Phantom 65 to US yacht buyers with this show debut. The 65ft Phantom is part of the investment we’ve made into the future growth of the brand with a really exciting period ahead of us as we look towards next year’s US debut of the Squadron 58 and world debut of the new Targa 40. We’re really looking forward to hearing what visitors think when they see the Phantom in person.” 

Fairline will be represented at its FLIBS stand by its network of dealers alongside key personnel from Fairline’s design and manufacturing teams to ensure visitors are provided with the brand’s world-class service and everything they need to know about Fairline and its range going into the 2024 season.
