Comments: Based on a Osmond 47 hull lengthened to 50′ by Little River Boat Shop (see Maine Line, May CFN), Phantom turned out “top notch”, according to owner Nick Lemieux. Lemieux, who runs Little River shop with his father, Norbert, when they’re not lobstering, said he was “really proud of our shop crew and the work they did.” Custom touches include a hydraulic tailgate and below-deck capacity for 16 crates.
