1969 Fairey Spearfish for sale in Falmouth, Cornwall

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019
1969 Fairey Spearfish for sale in Falmouth, Cornwall

1969 Fairey Spearfish for sale in Falmouth, Cornwall

Exquisite and Exceptional.  A very rare opportunity.

Every enthusiast for Fairey Marine powerboats knows that the hard-to-find Spearfish encapsulates the advantages of a GRP hull with fabulous sea-keeping capabilities (derived from the Huntsman 31) giving a soft and dry ride.

This Spearfish is very rare due to the wooden superstructure on that GRP hull with such elegant lines.  This wooden top Spearfish by Fairey Marine is a joy to the eye and in concours condition.

Current and previous owners have maintained this boat fastidiously to keep her as original as possible ensuring desirability while also doing whatever is needed.  Thus, in addition to gleaming  varnish and glistening topsides the engines blocks have electric pre-heaters switched on by a phone app which when the boat is connected to shore-power. These warm the engines before arrival/start-up to reduce smoke and increase engine longevity.  A powerful bow thruster with its own battery system aids coming alongside helping make that a calm experience.

New teak decks were fitted in 2011/12 and subsequently re-painted this boat has for many years been dry-stored out of the sunlight and washed with fresh water after salt-water enjoyment.

This fine vessel is not for the shy – she turns heads wherever she goes.

As a reminder: In the late 1960s the ‘plug’ used to make the mould for the Spearfish was a Fairey Huntsman 31 – the high-water mark of the Fairey Marine powerboat range.  Early GRP hulls were made almost as thick as the wooden hulls they replaced so by modern standards this is a very solid GRP hull. Couple that to the fabulous dry and soft ride that a Fairey Huntsman 31 has – and by extension the Fairey Spearfish – then one can understand why these boats so rarely come on the market and are so sought-after when they do.

1977 Nautor Swan 47 for sale in Salerno, Italy

The Sparkman & Stephens Swan 47 is a very powerful sailing yacht with impeccable sea manners and performance, especially upwind. In her current configuration she is easily handled by 2 or more crew.

1985 Moody 47 for sale in Baja California Sur, Mexico

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019
1985 Moody 47 for sale in Baja California Sur, Mexico

1985 Moody 47 for sale in Baja California Sur, Mexico

1985 Moody 47 lying in Mexico.

This Moody 47 spent 1987-1997 ashore in dry storage, followed by 10 years on a fresh water lake, so it has not seen the usage or wear and tear you would expect from a 30+ year old boat.

The Moody 47 is a great example of yet another successful design to come from the drawing board of Bill Dixon. With a full beam master cabin aft and a spacious saloon this centre cockpit cruiser is well thought out and comfortable for longer distance cruising.

The current owners have recently replaced the navigation equipment to a modern Garmin system, added a Kubota generator, new ICOM SSB, Maxwell windlass along with a new stove and water heater.

Owner’s comments:

‘Divershun’ has been well maintained, teak is in great shape, the gel coat waxed to look new too, over all a very clean boat.

1977 Nautor Swan 47 for sale in Malta

Friday, February 15th, 2019
1977 Nautor Swan 47 for sale in Malta

1977 Nautor Swan 47 for sale in Malta

13mm Teak Deck new in 2012

‘Pulsar II’ is an S&S Nautor Swan 47 MK II and was the first hull with the Mk II interior. This gives her a larger saloon and slightly smaller aft cabin compared to her earlier sisters with her mast just forward of the saloon table instead of in the middle of the table. She was built in June 1977.

The Sparkman & Stevens Swan 47 is a very powerful sailing yacht with impeccable sea manners and performance, especially upwind. In her current configuration she is easily handled by 2 or more crew.

The Current owners purchased in Palma, Majorca in 2001. She was shipped to the UK via cargo ship and went immediately into a yard for professional work on the hull and the yacht in general. Over the next 2 years she was heavily refitted.

In 2004 the rig was un-stepped, all fittings removed and the aluminium tube painted in white Awlgrip. All mast fittings including the rod kicker were also painted. The mast was re-assembled and re-stepped after all rigging and electrics were checked and replaced as required.

The work was carried out at the Swan service centre, Camper & Nicholsons, Gosport.

Since then she has been continuously updated. In 2012 she had a new 13mm teak deck, new instrumentation including a chart plotter at the helm position in a custom built stainless steel frame, new anchor chain and a new cruising furling genoa in 2014.

The hull is original gel which is in very good condition. The coach roof and cockpit were painted in 2012 with white Awlgrip, 6 coats.

She was very successfully raced in 2003, achieving overall amateur winner of the Swan Europeans and 1st in class in JOG Cat 3 Class 1 summer series.

In 2004 she left the UK and was sailed to the Mediterranean. In 2005 she arrived in Malta and has been based in Malta since that date and has been updated every year with the concept of keeping her as original as is practical.

Every summer she has sailed to Greece and cruised the Ionian Islands and the Aegean Greek islands, returning to Malta in September for the winter ashore.

‘Pulsar II’ is currently registered with Small Ships Register, UK.

This Amel Super Maramu is well equipped and ready to go cruising with her new owners, she is available for viewing in Papeete, French Polynesia.

Owner’s comments:

When we decided to buy our boat to sail around the world, and after visiting several yards we de- cided that the Amel SUPER MARAMU was the perfect boat for us like a couple.

We had the opportunity to visit the yard in La Rochelle, France to see and understand how their boats are built and we were after this visit even more convinced of their responsibility to do their boats.

We found a lot of advantages on the AMEL boat like the SUPER MARAMU:

– Central cockpit that brings security and comfort

– Easy to work with the sails from the center cockpit (just one person can do the job without
going out the cockpit)

– The interior is nice, elegant and classic (The wood work with mahogany is beautiful)

– Working on the engine room is easy and comfortable

– The aft cabin for guest is comfortable and private

– The quality and safety of the AMEL construction has been proved over the years

We bought PITU in 2011 and since we are happy sailing and living in as our home.

We navigate in the Mediterranean Sea until 2014 where we cross the Atlantic. We visited the Antil- les islands the west coast of USA until de Chesapeake Bay.

We decided to continue our adventure in the Pacific and we did the transpacific Panama- Galapagos-Gambier- Marquesas and Society Islands. We are located now in Tahiti and we would like to sale PITU to go back to Switzerland.

When someone is going to buy our boat PITU, she will be ready to sail! This is important, we did already all the improvements!
