Trio are the moulders for Crompton, who also own the Phantom moulds. I believe Trio bought them on behalf of Crompton, and currently mould the Phantom 20, 21 & 23 for them.

I'm referring solely to the phantom 20, 21 & 23, and the apparently slow sales of them - and unless I'm mistaken, they're hardboats?
