You have to wish them well with the new venture.

However, that "new" deck (from the few pictures released) looks equally as dated as the original. Almost a phantom/driver hybrid ........ And an anchor locker?

Agreed, If we had anchor in ours there, by now it would have gone through the deck!

Looks like they're doing a 16 and 18. Are there any better pics anywhere of the new decks?

It is possible to design a new deck that isn't hideous, and add steps that work

Good effort, should be interesting to see the completed new deck design, but canít see this help sell any boats compared to the original design that works well on a classic boat like this.

It’s great to see Phantoms are back, but…
… are these really Phantoms? If you change the deck and possibly even change the hull, add a step or something in that order, is it still a Phantom? Personally I wouldn’t mind having a new P18 but I would rather have the real thing if I bought a Phantom. If the new boat is better and faster and looks better than the old P18 I don’t really care what it’s called
