Our old pal Alex Udin officially launches his Martin Fischer-designed, Franck Cammas-tested Flying Phantom at next week’s Paris Boat Show; will this sexy, well turned-out 18-footer finally open the floodgates on production foilers for the masses? It very well might be, especially if, as we’ve been told, the Phantom is exceptionally stable and easy to fly. We’re also told it won’t break the bank, you can get it in about 17,000 different colors and patterns, and they’ve got piles of orders from everyone from old mothies to America’s Cup teams.
Have a peak at this excellent official promo video out yesterday, and for a more in-depth discussion on the boat and its creator, here’s a longer chat between Alex and Mr. Clean last month in England.
