The new PHANTOM 500, with its 15 m in length, represents SEA WATER’s new flagship and a new landmark for our shipyard in terms of design and technology. The most recent addition to our range and now SEA WATER’s leading RIB, the PHANTOM 500 can be supplied in an open configuration, with an enormous sun-pad and an array of spacious lockers for use as a day cruiser, tender or chase boat or with a spacious bow cabin and a custom maxi T-Top for comfortable cruising. The PHANTOM 500 can house either twin inboard diesel engines with sterndrives or other propulsion drives or triple and even quadruple outboard engines and together with one of the new Joystick piloting packages, available both with inboard or outboard engine configurations and/or a bow thruster, manoeuvrability and ease-of-use become unmatched.
Deck layout has once again been designed according to our SEA WATER philosophy: a simple and functional layout, where everything is in the right place and where beauty means simplicity. Starting from the immense bow Sun pad with a series of huge underlying storage lockers or, in the case of the cabin model, the large bow cabin with overlying sun-pad protected by two generous stainless steel grab rails and where the large stainless steel bow mooring pole gives the boat that unmistakable SEA WATER look that you can always recognise. Wide and comfortable passageways lead towards the Stern and, at the centre of the boat, to a large steering helm that houses a spacious and complete bathroom. The driver's position and the visibility from the helm are excellent and designed to make the PHANTOM 500 easy to drive and always safe. The dashboard is able to house all the instruments and all other fittings necessary for comfortable, safe and fun pleasure boating. Further astern, beneath the protection of the big T-top or the sun cover, the boat’s living area offers spacious and comfortable divans, a large table and an even larger refrigerator. The Stern is also home to a gigantic sun-pad and other passageways lead to an immense bathing platform (on the inboard model) with an elegant and practical hidden boarding ladder or generous side boarding ladders on the outboard model.
SEA WATER is a shipyard that can truly boast the fact that it has never built two boats alike and our concept of customisation and the search for a ‘tailor-made’ product, capable of being shaped to meet the exact needs of the customer, is even more tangible and clear on our new leading model. The options to personalise colours, cushion and upholstery textures and on-board equipment and fittings are virtually endless and engines, electronics and on-board domotics can be configured to satisfy all our customers’ requirements. Quality is always a major concern for us and on such an important boat, in the best SEA WATER tradition, high-quality stainless steel, generous solid teak decks and metallised marine paints make the PHANTOM 500 modern and aggressive but also an elegant and sober rigid inflatable boat.
The PHANTOM 500’s aggressive and elegant looks will turn more than a head, but the sound practical solutions on-board, the intelligent deck layout and the virtually infinite customisation possibilities will astound you even more. The Phantom 500 truly is a RIB and a RIB for all seasons.
