Our newest listing: a unique Peterborough Phantom, 12 ft, 1961
This is a very rare racer; one of the last boats made by Peterborough Boat Co. – possibly the only one of this model made!
A two-seater speedboat with a molded mahogany hull in PRISTINE, ORIGINAL condition. Always stored indoors and only hauled in a closed, single axle boat trailer which is included in the sale. Hasn’t been in the water for over 30 years. Comes with an 18 hp Evinrude Fastwin with remote controls.
All original hull, decking, no restoration work done or needed. There is a vinyl cover on the seat but can be taken off – underneath is the original solid fibreglass seat. Includes running lights, compass, speedometer – all original. Compass and flag are stored off boat.
This boat was sold new in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan by Eaton’s. On delivery, the buyer noticed that there were indentations on the transom that looked like a motor had been mounted on it. We surmise that this is the boat that was used for the photograph of the Phantom in the last Peterborough Boat Company catalog. The photograph showed the boat in the water at high speed. After extensive searching, we have been unable to locate another of this model.pb629-1
