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.

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

1967 Fairey Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin for sale in Poole, Dorset

1967 Fairey Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin for sale in Poole, Dorset

1967 Fairey Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin for sale in Poole, Dorset

Just refreshed with varnish work, new anti-foul and anodes for the 2018 season.  Additional pictures taken before launch on Friday 25th May.

Fairey Marine produced power-boats that were the class of the field and the epitome of style.

The Fairey Huntsman 31 was the personal brain child of Chief Designer Alan Burnard who persuaded the Directors of the need for a boat to slot in between the still-selling Huntsman at 28 feet and the Swordsman at 33 feet.  All hulls were made from multiple layers of Agba veneers that were hot-moulded in an autoclave at Hamble Point near Southampton.

All Huntsman 31s are renowned for their soft and dry ride which is why they are sought after when rarely coming onto the market.

Venator is the first production Huntsman 31, hull #1 so has a unique place in marine history.

She benefits from renovation work to her hot-moulded hull including new spray rails and much sympathetic freshening of her interior – such as new cabin flooring and cabin roof-lining – yet keeping many original features.  These boats were strong, light and powerful being built to go places.

In addition to craftsmanship on the hull by a marque expert which included additional strengthening learnt from later race-boats Venator in the last 3 years has been completely rewired with 24 volt engine circuits together with 12 volt sockets for phones and 240 volt sockets in main cabin and the galley.  LED lights are fitted in both cabins.  Other work includes a re-paint and two period 210bhp Ford Sabre engines driving through Borg-Warner gearboxes to 3 bladed propellers.  Recently, 4 new batteries were fitted as well as an oil-change and filters for the engines.

A top speed of over 30 knots is regularly achieved.

Thus, the fundamentals have all been addressed.  Venator like all Fairey power boats is best described as a production class GT boat and now needs a new custodian to maintain her place in history and take her forward.  Thus, the new owner has the rare opportunity to maintain and enjoy a marine icon because, as the first production Huntsman 31, Venator inspired many over the years.

1977 Fairey Spearfish for sale in Southern England

This classic Fairey Spearfish motorboat won the Fairey Owners Club “Best Spearfish” and “Concourse d’Elegance” in 2009 in her previous ownership and has since been further refurbished including new Iveco Marine FPT (Fiat Powertrain Technologies) N40 250’s (less than 70hrs), a new galley and helm console.
