Broker's Comments

Built in 1967 this Fairey Huntress was adopted by no less than HMS Fearless and served as the Captains launch.
The hull is in lovely condition although she would benefit from having the windows re-bedded and some attention to her teak laid deck, although fully serviceable as she is.
Given her providence this fine lady whose sisters were also used in James Bond 'From Russia with Love' films must be given a new home and is extremely well priced to sell.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
