The Fairline Phantom 42 is a family cruiser, making full use of the available space belowdecks, made possible by the compact, space-cheating turbo-diesels. The deep-V hull with its 18-degree deadrise has been designed around these latest generation engines. It incorporates all the best soft-riding features of its predecessors, but with even more comfortable sea-keeping capabilities, particularly in head seas. The sleek lines of the extended super-structure form an extra-long flybridge which contains a double helm seat, U-shaped dining area and a full length sun bed aft, all protected by dark-tinted acrylic codgers. The sweeping curve of the flush-fitting windscreen and the large louvred saloon windows maximize available ambient light. There are flyscreens on the saloon windows and hatch. The large teak-laid cockpit, with port-side transom gate to the extended, teak-laid bathing platform and integral curved companionway staircase to the flybridge above, features a large hold and separate concealed fender stowage. Below decks the Phantom 42 is offered in a choice of genuine, lacquered American Cherry or Maple.
The generously proportioned saloon is fitted with twin settees, one incorporating a fold-out double sofa bed, sideboard and bar. The port-side galley, with its Teak or Cherry floor, features a gas hob, oven, grill and refrigerator. The well appointed master cabin forward, has twin full-length wardrobes, a king-sized double berth, en suite toilet and separate shower enclosure; while the twin-bedded guest cabin has its own integral toilet and shower, which is also accessible from the central corridor. FAIRLINE PHANTOMS: The Phantom Flybridge Series has been created for those with wider horizons than the local coastline and the next easy-to-park-in marina. Serious long-range, all-weather capability is a Phantom's strongest suit, which is why its design and construction usually appeals to the more experienced, adventurous owner who wants to enjoy extended cruising in comfort. Phantoms feature generous fuel and water capacities and plenty of stowage, spacious accommodation with extra-long beds, large washrooms and a well equipped and proportioned galley that can cater proper family meals. The solid, seaworthy hull and advanced engineering systems, strong, high guard rails, and wide side decks (with easy flybridge access) assure safe cruising. The series includes the aft-cabin Phantom 43ac, the Phantom 38 and the Phantom 42. FAIRLINE BOATS: Fairline features three distinct ranges of power cruiser - the sparkling five-boat Targa range, the three powerful Phantoms, and the elegant and stylish the four-model Squadron Series. At the design and planning stage, Fairline pays particular attention to the demands of long-range passage-making. For example, generous fuel and fresh water tankage is provided to increase range and offshore capability, and the use of space is planned intelligently, by people who understand cruising. Creature comforts like long, comfortable beds, big bathrooms with separate showers, and well equipped, ergonomically planned galleys, combine to make living on board a real pleasure. Fairline uses genuine wood veneers throughout their interiors and bathing platforms on all boats are teak-laid, as are the cockpit floors on Flybridge boats and larger Targas. Solid Avonite or Swanstone tops are fitted on work surfaces and vanity units. Fairline offers a choice of light honey-tinted Maple or rich American Cherry. Larger boats feature even more exquisite combinations: American Cherry, Eucalyptus and Burr Elm; or Maple, Bird's Eye Maple and Madrona Burr. The deeply lacquered, protective finishes complement exclusive ranges of overhead and bulkhead finishes and custom-made soft furnishings, the latter available in an extensive choice of designer fabrics. Fairline's materials and construction methods are rigorously tested for durability, colour-fastness, fire resistance and smoke suppression by the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA). Fairline selects the finest marine engines available and design and engineer systems around the selected engines, to enable them to run at maximum efficiency. Aerodynamically-designed air intakes and ventilation systems ensure a continuous supply of cool air. Nickel-aluminium-bronze rudders and sterngear (rather than cheaper manganese-bronze) give strength and long life. Specially designed bonding systems minimize the risk of galvanic corrosion on underwater fittings. Large battery capacities with regulated support systems and oversize starter cables provide real reliability in the long term.
In 1993 Fairline's high standards of design and construction were recognized by the Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) of Italy and in 1994, they achieved full ISO9001 and BS5750 accreditation, unusual among British builders. At the beginning of 1997, Fairline was the very first European builder to achieve CE recognition for its entire range.
