This professionally refitted and maintained concourse condition Fairey Huntsman 28 twin screw sports cruisers is now some fifty five years of age and has had a vast amount of money spent on her during two staged refits in the last ten years to produce a vessel that is cosmetically and mechanically best of breed.

Internally the standard of joinery in her warm air heated accommodation is exceptional for a vessel of her size and overall she represents the marine equivalent of a Park Lane display motor car.

Designed originally by Ray Hunt and modified by Alan V. Burnard of Fairey Marine in Hamble, the Fairey Huntsman 28 is renowned for very superior handling characteristics and seakeeping. During the late 1960s and 1970s they were raced highly successfully offshore and gained many trophies.

Re-engined in 2001 with twin 6 cylinder turbocharged 5.9 litre Cummins 215hp diesel engines, close coupled to ZF reverse reduction gearboxes.

Bill Dunlop the renowned Fairey surveyor and former employee of the Fairey Marine factory carried out a pre purchase survey for her current owners in October 2011. This survey including engine oil analysis is available on request, however is now almost irrelevant because the few points identified were dealt with as part of more extensive work now leaving her in best of breed condition.

New teak decks (2013)

Her impressive inventory includes all stainless steel rudders and rudder tubes, Bruce anchor with chain, search light, forward coachroof deck hatch with glass pane, drop down washbasin, pushpit rail, stern ladder and exhausts along with many other stainless steel fitting on deck and throughout.

This Fairey Huntsman 28 benefits from being re-painted to a very high standard. Her exterior varnish work was re-varnished in 2016.

Other features include trim tabs, Simpson and Lawrence Horizon windlass, hydraulic steering system, Moto-Lita steering wheel, LED cockpit courtesy lights, electric head, oven with three burner grill hob unit, fridge, three battery banks, shore power and Mastervolt battery charger and an extremely fine cockpit sprayhood and extension which in the words of her surveyor “appears to be virtually leak proof”.

Are you looking to relocate your boat? Our experience has provided us with the breadth of knowledge to understand even the most individual requirements.

Shipping your boat allows you to explore all the sailing areas which you wouldn’t normally have time to reach and at the same time reducing any wear and tear on your boat. Having your boat shipped can get you across oceans in a matter of days.

Haulage can allow you to take the most direct route to where you would like your boat to be. It is often the quickest way of moving boats around.

A crewed delivery allows you to have your boat delivered to the exact location you want, not relying on where trucks or ships have to end up.

We are able to work with you to get the best method of boat transport to suit your budget, time scale and any other requirements.

Here are some examples of boat movements we have managed over the past year.

Westerly Conway 36 – Assisted delivery with owner

A client from Falmouth found his ideal yacht on our brokerage books, having purchased the yacht he needed assistance in returning the boat back to the West Country. The owners had not previously owned a boat and they had little sailing experience. We organised a skipper to join them on the delivery during which the owners were able to achieve their RYA Day Skipper qualifications.

Beneteau 44.7 – Crewed delivery to Sweden

A Swedish client purchased a yacht we had on show at our Hamble Point Marina office. This client needed the boat to be delivered back before the Stockholm archipelago froze over for the winter. We arranged a professional skipper and crew to get deliver it safely and on time.

Fairey Huntsman 28 – Haulage to Nantes

A French client was looking for a classic powerboat to enjoy in Nantes. He fell in love with a Fairey Huntsman 28 lying on the Hamble River.  A problem he faced was he was unqualified to drive a powerboat on French waters, so he was unable to take the boat by sea. We organised the lift and loading onto a truck at Hamble Point Marina which then delivered the boat to its new home port in Nantes.

Amongst other projects, we have also recently arranged shipping from the UK to the Middle East of a Classic Cigarette Powerboat to Dubai and a 36ft and 41ft semi-custom motorboat to Kuwait. To meet Customs requirements we also helped the owners import the ETNZ Volvo Ocean 70 ‘Camper’ to our Hamble Customs Warehouse.
