1972 Fairey Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin for sale in Cowes, Isle of Wight

This Fairey Huntsman 31 represents a unique opportunity for a new owner with a passion for these boats to take advantage of an extensive professional refit in 2019 including twin Ford Sabre engines with only 50 hours from new and new gearboxes.

This Huntsman 31 has accommodation for four with galley and heads with shower.

This Fairey Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin “Brig-Y-Don” benefits from a new teak deck (2011) and then a sensitive refurbishment, including a full repaint and extensive works by professional boat builders at great expense to ensure that she is structurally and mechanically sound and in Concourse condition.

The pictures included with this Specification show details of the refit along with current images showing her condition now.

`Brig-Y-Don’, is now some forty seven years of age and has the stiffened hull with the Mark II air intakes. Below decks she is a complete time warp, being virtually original except for the fit out of the heads and slight modifications to the galley. She has obviously been very well maintained and not abused, therefore showing very few areas requiring attention.

Full Title documents for secure transfer of title.

Viewing highly recommended by future “custodians” of this once in a lifetime opportunity to own a sound Fairey Huntsman.

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.
