Broker Remarks

The Fairey Huntress encapsulates style, elegance & performance. This is a real stunner that will turn heads. Classic lines that will stand out at sea and on the marina. A classic James Bond boat as featured in "From Russia with Love"
The idea of the Fairey Huntress was the brainchild of Richard Fairey, son of Sir Richard and his former school friend, test pilot Bruce Campbell. They had become aware of the new "deep-V" hull design by their friend, the eminent American naval architect Raymond C Hunt, and agreed to build his 23 foot launch as a Fairey boat. So began the birth of the now classic Fairey Marine Motor Cruisers. "Wight Huntress" is a Fairey Huntress 26 and exhibited at the London Boat Show in 1965. Badged as a Huntsman 26 with the same deep V moulded hull depth, single large side windows, standing headroom and separate heads. Her single Perlins HT 6354 turbo diesel is mounted below the cockpit floor which is flush from transom to cabin bulkhead with helmsman and navigator pedestal seats and bench transom seat.
This Huntress has been well cared for and launched for only two months every year. Powered by a Perkins diesel and in full running order.
