VIDEO: Flying Phantom Essentiel - The mainstream foiling catamaran

Flying Phantom Essentiel

Summer is near in the Northern Hemisphere, everyone is back on the water. How about going foiling this year? Foil sailing is becoming more common and more accessible. It is not the future of sailing anymore, it is all happening now! Foils are everywhere : windsurfs, kitesurfs, catamarans, and even Optimists.
Even the american economic newspaper the Wall Street Journal is addressing the issue with a special review about the foiling boats to be published in the April 22nd Week-end Edition
At Phantom International, we have launched the Flying Phantom Essentiel. A flying sport catamaran designed not only for a handful of top sailors, but for all sailing enthusiasts.
The objective is not to sail in the Olympic Games, but to discover a new fun way of sailing. With four watchwords : enjoyment, speed, comfort and safety.
As opposed to its ‘big’ brother Flying Phantom Elite, the Flying Phantom Essentiel doesn’t aim at high level competition like the FP Series. It is a versatile catamaran, made for leisure sailing as well as local beach cat regattas. The Essentiel flies in a wind range from 5 to 25 knots and can reach 20-25 knots of speed in 10 knots of wind. Thrill guaranteed!
