Broker's Comments

This Fairey Huntsman is a sought after Marque. They are renown for their great handling and classic looks. This Fairey needs tlc and an enthusiast to take her over. The past owner appears to have looked after the engine well and the upholstery looks ok too. However the decks and wood work all need attending to. A surveyor would be able to comment regarding the condition of the hull. I have seen boats that look a lot better than this cosmetically but problems came up on survey and also seen boats look worse that have actually done well on the survey. Do come and have a look for yourself. She is priced to attract attention.
