I tried it a few weeks back, although I prefer hard boats I thought it went really well. Very impressed indeed.

Are there any pics of it rigged? The picture on the site shows a bare boat. What engine have they got and whats the performance like compared to a standard P16?

Currently rigged with a twin consul, side by side seats and a 85hp engine. Don't know what typr of engine so don't ask, sorry.
With 3 up it did approx. 45mph between the piers (Bmth/Bosc) recently. Might get some more pics myself soon and will post them here.

The engine is an old 85 Yamie, re-built.
I think a whisker under 50 was achieved between the piers with some air-born anticks thrown in for good measure.
Very Very impressed.
Not to keen on rhib's myself ,,,,, but this is GOOD !!!!

Agree! - I know 'retro' styling is a current trend, but that seems to accentuate all that was bad about 70's design!

I'd like to know a little more about the 'pad' they've added to the P16 hull.

Obviously the colours are a bit way out, and could be changed, but the console looks a tad boring, and I hope to god the offset was intended!

Dunno much myself have to give Clive and Graham a call.

Just got to remember it's a Phantom under there and looks can be deceptive...
