Hi ! Its the same boat. Its a 1985 model Phantom 25 from UK. I bought it in 1998, then equipped with the Johnson GT 300. The most fun to drive was the twin 2.5 EFI SS with PCU's. But USD 300 in fuel and oil per hour stopped me using them after 6 years. Great sound too ! The best engine has been...
Hope all are well
Then I have put the 450R in the shopping basket, and if I am lucky I will receive it in August since the dealer made an order 5 months ago. Lucky me.
I will post the rerigg and performance data.
During the 23 years I have owned my boat, I have run several engine...
At last I have the possibility to order a V8 450R for my ol Phantom 25. Being a festival promoter has not been easy the last year.. Totally lock down.
The 400R has been a fantastic engine, but this season is the last with warranty.
The 450R has been on the market for a while now. Any...
Greetings from Norway 😁
1985 original Steve Baker UK Phantom 25 with Verado 400R on it. I have owned it since 1998 and had numerous engine setups incl Johnson V8 3,6 litre 300 hp, Promax 300X SVS, 2 x 2.5 Efi SS Pcu, Verado 350 Sci and now Verado 400R. Next season Merc 450R. Top speed 89...
Thanks so much ! :)
I have a Stainless Marine Gorilla jackplate, but will upgrade to Bobs Gen 3 jackplate rated for 550 hp or https://shauntorrenteracing.com/collections/str-x-act-bracket. I will aim for the gen 3 pump for the steeeing.
Look forward to the new journey !
I hope you all are well.
I will buy a 450R in near future. It will replace my Verado 400R on my Phantom 25.
If I am correct this set up is not a plug and play as fx Verado 350 Sci to 400R.
Do I need to buy a wire harness, different fuel line and steering set up? Anything more?
Can I use...
Pls come to Norway and blueprint the bottom of ol Phantom ! I am sure we then will hit the magic 90 mph :) Amazing work. Never seen the like. Good karma from us in Lillesand :)
When you upgrade to the 450R, will you still use your Gorilla jackplate? As you know I have the same jackplate on my...
I hope you all are well and healthy in these diffilcult times.
I plan to replace my 400R next year as the warranty will expire in 2 years. I will get more for it selling it with one year warranty than none. Its mounted to Phantom 25 offshore V hull from 1985.
I wonder if anyone of you...
104 db is loud ! The max we are allowed at our festivals are 99 db... So in fact you can play more than twice as loud. 3db increase is twice as loud (which I am sure you know :))
Thanks again for all your insight and details to learn from. THose washers are cool !!
Sorry to hear about your back. Good karma from Lillesand that you will be well soon, and your StressEliminator will be hitting the water in time ! You definetly deserve that with all your work going into this amazing project.
I got sciatica 2 months back. Feeling like 70 years plus...
Good to hear from you ! You are soon over 100 mph with yours soon :)
For me managing 89 mph is unreal with that old heavy offshore racer. So I am super happy. But... maybe we can squeeze another 3-5 mph out if.
Unfortunately no trip to The Keys this year, but Miami Boatshow is more...
