STANDARD EQUIPMENT and FEATURES:

SPECIALLY DESIGNED HULL WITH BOXED KEEL:
The Phantom was designed from the ground up specifically for electric power. Its unique
boxed keel holds the main battery bank and motor, keeping the weight centered and down low in the boat and making for a very stable and comfortable ride, even through choppy conditions. The keel affords excellent protection for the propeller and rudder, allowing the boat to be safely beached. Also, because the keel ends well ahead of the rudder, the boat tracks and turns beautifully. The hull is constructed of three layers of vacuum laminated cedar. Then it is completely fiberglassed, laboriously hand faired and sprayed with polyurethane paint. The transom is of varnished mahogany. (All mahogany hulls are also available).

 

DUAL BATTERY BANKS AND ONBOARD CHARGERS:
The Absorbed Glass Mat batteries used in the Phantom are completely sealed-unlike standard batteries, they never require water and don't give off any dangerous gasses. The onboard automatic chargers operate with any standard 110 volt outlet and are specifically designed to match the battery bank size and type. At 80% power, the boats will operate for 5 hours on the main bank and 2 hours on the reserve. Each bank is individually monitored to give an accurate indication of charge remaining. A larger battery bank is available as an option.

EXQUISITELY CRAFTED MAHOGANY DECKS AND INTERIOR:
The detail and craftsmanship that go into every Budsin boat is what makes them so special. We'll let the pictures do the talking:

 

 


CUSTOM BRONZE LIGHTS AND HARDWARE:
The lighting and hardware for the boats are custom fabricated for us by foundries in England. The bronze fittings are available either chrome plated or they can be left alone to mature to a beautiful natural patina. As an option, they are also available gold plated, which gives a highly polished look without the work.

TEAK FLOORING AND BOARDING STEPS:
Oiled teak provides an elegant yet practical solution for these high wear areas. Two boarding steps are located at the ends of the side seats. For extra security, a removable boarding pole easily attaches to these steps.

BUILT-IN AFT DECK COOLER:
The cooler is located just behind the aft seat and is accessed by a deck hatch. It holds two to three bags of ice and twelve to twenty drinks. An automatic overboard drain is connected so there is no need to empty the ice.

SOLID BRASS RUB RAILS:
For added hull protection, solid brass rub rails are attached to the white oak bumpers and to the stem.

SUNBRELLA CUSHIONS:
All cushions are covered with easy-care marine rated Sunbrella® fabric. The seat backs are all easily removed to access the storage areas behind them.

DEDICATED LIFE JACKET STORAGE:
Life jackets are stored behind the side seat backs, quickly accessible in an emergency yet out of the way. This leaves the main storage area under the fore deck convenient and available for more frequently used items.

AUTOMATIC SUMP MOUNTED BILGE PUMP:
The Phantom's main bilge pump is located in the boxed keel in a sump just forward of the battery compartment. This means that the boat's bilge area will stay absolutely dry and without the usual couple inches of water sloshing around which is needed to activate the automatic switches found on most boats. An additional emergency pump is located in the motor compartment.

BOTTOM PAINT AND BOOT TOP STRIPE:
The bottom is coated with an antifouling paint to mach the local water conditions, and a contrasting boot top stripe is painted at the waterline.
