The Phantom is alive – The legend lives on!
2006 Riviera / MTU Game fishing special Project / Show boat.
Superbly built and maintained regardless of cost.
Striking Silver hull with MTU 1085 hp engines.
In full survey & fully equipped for offshore Game fishing.
Few opportunities come along to own an iconic boat and this is one of them. With its Silver hull and powerful MTU Engines the Riviera 51 Phantom is as striking as its character.
From inception as a Riviera / MTU joint venture in 2005, Designed and built by Riviera to showcase in 2006 what they could do in the prestige Game fishing tournaments, “Fascination 11” as she was then known, has wowed people from at Tournaments from Melbourne to Cairns in 2007. She was then named The Phantom by her current owner and involved in the 2008 series in Cairns. Then Phantom was involved in the 2008 / 2009 light tackle season in SE Queensland, winning several tournaments along the way.
In June 2009 a re-fit was undertaken putting new Leather throughout, new TV, washer/dryer, upgrade to the live bait system, new game chair & other major fishing equipment. The electrical system was upgraded to allow 3 phase shore power, under water lights and rear deck 12 VDC for power reel fishing. Galley refrigeration and freezer units were upgraded plus an Icemaker installed to keep everything cold.
The 2009 Cairns season followed by the 2009 / 2010 light tackle season kept Phantom busy until the GFC dried up charter bookings so the 2010 / 2011 light tackle season was completed with a follow up in 2011 / 2012.
Phantom has to be inspected to be fully appreciated. The Phantom is very versatile Sports fishing yacht with many custom build features such as removable swim platform, four MTU controls stations allowing fingertip control from all points, through to its custom galley and all encompassing electrical system with respect to both fishing and long duration accommodation requirements.
The Phantom is truly unique amongst the larger Riviera Sorts fishers as we know the best minds and build crews at Riviera & MTU were involved in her creation. This together with extensive Riviera, MTU and Twin disc warranty / maintenance programmes make her a must to inspect for serious Game Fishers, Game Fishing charter operators and resorts.
Phantom is seriously for sale now. While an outright sale is preferred the current owner will consider a similar high quality 40’ trade in. Full Usage history and service history is available including details of a recent refurbishment of over $200,000 to Engines, generator, eutectic refrigeration system and other appliances that will reduce expense for the future.
Take the opportunity to visit this compelling Sport Fisher and become part of the Phantom legend.
