Double diagonal Agba hot moulded in an autoclave. This was the most advanced building method of the time and the fact that so many Fairey craft survive to this day is testament enough. This boat has been in a rebuild process since 2002 and has had new decks, transom,galley, upholstery and a repaint from bare wood.The deck is teak over ply and the superstructure is ply.

Broker's Comments

Looking for a project, well I have found you one. A major rebuild program was started on this boat but this has now stalled. A lot of money has been spent and capital items like engines are all there. What is needed is someone to take this project to completion and you will then own one of British boatings legendary boats. The Huntsman class were regular with their successes in offshore racing and many still survive in their original format. Skills, advice and spare parts are still available and this boat really deserves to be back on the water. These boat details are subject to contract.
