This partnership is a major milestone in Phantom International history says Alex Udin founder of Phantom International. "We are very proud to work with McConaghy. Very few boat builders met our extensive requirements in terms of technology, quality and delivery. Looking at the sales forecast we wanted to give ourselves the right production tool".

Mark Evans, Managing Director of McConaghy said: "We are excited to form this parthership with Phantom building their high tech foiling multi hulls. We will bring to the partnership our 50 years of experience, along with the latest in production techniques and equipment.

We believe our two companies, both with solid backgrounds, will make a strong team to push these high quality products into the market place.

We will also be working with Phantom International to develop new products."
