A support vessel bigger than most yachts.
The PHI Project is most certainly one of the most exciting ventures we’ve seen from the marine world. It involves multiple vessels, including the PHI superyacht and its support vessel/yacht, the PHI Phantom. Now, Alia Yachts has released new information, as well as photos and a video of PHI Phantom support vessel being taxied out of its building halls and into the water. The purpose of PHI Phantom is to be a support vessel that will carry tenders and toys that the “mothership” cannot stow thanks to a 150 square-meter aft deck. This includes the 14m gentleman’s tender being built at Spirit Yachts and the Axopar 37 Suntop. While PHI Phantom does have a job to do, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with its fair share of luxury. The interior and exterior design reflects elements of the mothership, with the matte blue-gray paint matching perfectly. Inside are berths for a crew of up to six but Alia Yachts notes that she can be handled by just three. One of the cabins can also be used as a guest cabin when the full crew of six is not on board.
PHI Phantom is currently undergoing final sea trials and will be delivered to the owner in June.
