It's listed on yachtworld.com
Price seems pretty inexpensive for its size.

Certainly looks the business, nice lines, good motors and light (steyers), all the toys.

Does seem underwinched, though Andersons are my No 1 pick for winches

Rig looks short as well.

Is it a custom build? Cant find anything on the builder and cant find hull material (fiberglass is not enough info)

Just found more info here

I looked after one of the two build Fantasy cats for about two years. The owner lost with the sale of the "like new" boat about 70 percent of the purchase price.

The finish of the new delivered boat I know was very poor, even for a shipyard which build for first time a "luxury" catamaran. The interior was nearly in Gületh-Style . The new owner has to invest a lot of money to bring it to a useful standard. The best of this cat was the equipment on which a larcenous supervisor earned a lot of commissions. All fittings from Antal and sails from Hood, etc. The Steyr engines were good, but the built in gears were a number to small. The tanks are all leaky, the wooden parts rotted and so on ...

The second Fantasy was sold as an empty hull, the interior was made by the owner himself. May he has also saved some money in the equipment?

Nevertheless the basic design of the Fantasy is nice and roomy. Also it behaves very good in heavy weather. I had a 50 kn+ wind on a (motor-)transfer trip in the Med.

But I cannot recommend it in the way it was produced.
