ROTOMOLDING PLASTIC BOAT PROCESS
- An extensive array of colors and styles
The Phantom’s plastic alloy provides various colors and new phosphorus-glowing materials.
The Phantom’s durable plastic composition is made to last and requires minimal maintenance. Its buoyancy is achieved by way of positive floatation Styrofoam insertions through the hull.
- Durable and Lightweight
The lightweight hull is purposefully adapted for electric propulsion and easy hauling. The Phantom is 30% lighter than its fiberglass counterpart.
The Phantom is a self-bailing boat which allows water to be expelled automatically.
