About
We only take 10 guests and offer a unique personal experience with 20 years taking guests on our beautiful live-aboard yacht and we still love it!! We share our passion for what we do and love meeting people from all over the world and sharing stories from our travels and lifestyle. We have sailed to many countries on many different boats, so come along and hear the tales of adventures far and wide. We raised our son on the boat while sailing from the Caribbean and throughout the South Pacific and New Zealand for many years.

The most AMAZING day!
Very last minute we called to see if we could go out with Phantom and they were more than happy to accommodate us! We had the most amazing day sailing around the Bay of Islands and Rick and Robin were perfect hosts - telling us stories and information about where we were and providing a delicious lunch! Couldn't of asked for a better experience, couldn't recommend booking with Phantom more!!
