The 22’ Phantom is the crown jewel of electric boats and elegance exudes from every minute detail, both visually and mechanically, and mechanical. The boat features a sleek and efficient hull combined with exquisitely finished mahogany decks reminiscent of the long deck launches of the early 1900’s. Its unique boxed keel holds the main battery bank and motor, keeping the weight centered and down low in the boat.

This makes for a very stable and comfortable ride even through choppy conditions. The boxed keel design also affords excellent protection for the propeller and rudder allowing the boat to be safely beached. With enough power to run silently for hours at six-plus knots, the Phantom is as robust as it is beautiful.

The cockpit is designed for socializing and features a hidden slide-out table to make entertaining a breeze on any impromptu cruise. (Insert slide out table photo) The concealed icebox built neatly into the aft deck is easily accessed from the aft seat. As on all Budsin boats, the driver’s controls are convenient yet unobtrusive, demanding very little attention. The Sunbrella® upholstered seats provide comfortable seating for six to eight adults with plenty of room underneath left to kick your feet. An optional removable canopy is available to provide shade on sunny days.

The stylish canopy top perfectly matches the compound curvature of the decks. Sliding hatches make entry and exit a breeze. The canopy breaks down and stores on top of the deck when trailering.
