Phantom Cabin is more comfortable than ever

Updated Buster Phantom Cabin model 2021 interior

Buster’s flagship model, the Phantom Cabin, has been fully updated for the 2021 boating season: new premium interior, new doors – aft and bow – and yet one important detail the users have been asking: spacious toilet integrated into console. 

“The Phantom Cabin has been fully updated based on customer feedback. While most customers use their Phantom Cabin as a commuter boat, the addition of a separate WC significantly improves comfort and expands the range of possible uses for this model, especially for cruising and tourism applications,” says Marketing Manager Johan Finnberg.

The toilet is situated in front of the navigator’s seat. Access to the WC is easy through the opening roof and L-shaped door. Standard equipment includes a water faucet and septic tank.

A separate WC is standard equipment on both the Phantom Cabin and Phantom Cabin Adventure model versions for 2021. The WC system includes pressurised water and an exhaust fan. Both the filling cap for the water tank and suction drain outlet for the septic tank can be found on the bow deck.

The most visible changes in the interior are the new materials used for the upholstery. Both the seat and wall upholstery are now dark grey, while the stylish stitching in the seats enhances the quality look and feel. 

Improvements to practicality include new doors. The front door now has only one lockable handle, compared to the previous version which used two latches and a separate lock. Thanks to the new doorframe, the door still closes extremely tightly. 

More space for passenger transport: Phantom Cabin Adventure

The Buster Phantom Cabin Adventure is a special model that has been tailored for transporting passengers in demanding conditions and replaces the U-shaped seating and table with three rows of benches to accommodate 11 passengers plus the skipper.

Buster’s luxury commuter model is joined by the new Phantom Cabin Adventure, which has been designed especially for transporting passengers in demanding conditions and for use by adventure tourism companies. The cosy and warm cabin can seat 11 passengers plus the skipper.. 

The Phantom Cabin Adventure replaces the U-shaped seating and table with three rows of benches, and the pantry behind the navigator’s seat is replaced by a new wide seat that can be folded up against the wall. Sturdy grab handles and foot supports further enhance safety at high speeds. 

The bow area in the basic model version has seating for three passengers, while the U-shaped seating at the stern comfortably seats five. The backrest of the navigator’s seat can be folded forward to create a pleasant social area for eight persons. 

Twin-engine setup as default

Both Phantom Cabin model versions are powered by twin outboards – double-Yamaha F200GETX, Yamaha F225FETX or Yamaha F300BETX  that improve the boat’s handling and reliability in demanding conditions.

With twin 4.2-litre V6 Yamaha outboards, each rated at 300 hp, the boat can achieve a top speed of over 50 knots. Depending on conditions, the skipper can choose to cruise comfortably at speeds between 25 and 40+ knots. At cruising speeds of 25-27 knot, fuel consumption is at or even below 2 litres/nM regardless of engine configuration. Twin 400-litre fuel tanks also provide a long range. 

Also available as an option is the Yamaha Helm Master drive-by-wire system for the twin outboards. Yamaha Helm Master provides joystick control to facilitate manoeuvring in the marina, with electronics controlling the angle, power and gears of the outboards. For cruising, the system includes automatic engine synchronisation, cruise control and trim assist.

New upholstery combines luxury and practicality

The most visible changes in the interior are the new materials used for the upholstery. Both the seat and wall upholstery are now dark grey, while the stylish stitching in the seats enhances the quality look and feel.

Improvements to practicality include new doors. The front door now has only one lockable handle, compared to the previous version which used two latches and a separate lock. Thanks to the new doorframe, the door still closes extremely tightly.

Standard equipment on both versions of the new Phantom Cabin is extremely comprehensive and includes the 16” Buster Q smart display, Navionics electronic navigation charts, a heater, electro-hydraulic power steering, sonar, trim tabs, dual battery system and Yamaha Y-COP immobiliser system. Both model versions also feature a bow thruster tunnel, and a bow thruster is optionally available.
