Yes the owner will not reply to any emails providing HIN's or any information about the engines age conditions etc.

Did it not finally sell on ebay over the weekend as it was getting toward what he was looking for ?

It's not real, and is the worst possible example of a shite copy. Phantom never built a stepped 28 anyway.
It fell appart the first time it was run hard (basic race)

Not certain if it was built in Holland, or Belgium, but definitely not Sittingbourne.

I believe 'Sterling' on this forum probably knows who built it.

Question

It been on Boats and Outboards For a load of Months
Started at £12,000 now at £8,500
I seen it at first rang the guy up to find out about it, the guy is very dry almost angry on the phone, pleaded he knew nothing about boats, me thought this was a bit strange cos this is'nt the first kind of boat you go out and buy this is where you end up after going through the ranks!!
It was a just wierd phone call !!!!!!

But it seems here from everyone who knows it, its just a floppy lot old crap which has been hit in the side.

Raced in Johnny Bravo with Dave Spurling a few years ago at LA Basic. What a terrible boat. We stopped after 2 laps.
