Broker Remarks

A unique Fairey, understood to be the only one of three of this type completed by Fairey Marine. Described as a Huntress 26 in the 1965 London Boat Show Brochure, Wight Huntress more closely resembles a Huntsman 28 having the same moulded hull depth (shortened by 2 feet), single large side windows, standing headroom and separate heads compartment. Her single Perkins HT6354 engine is mounted below the cockpit floor which is flush from the cabin bulkhead to the stern with helmsman and navigator pedestal seats and bench transom seat.


"De Luxe Model" as described in the original brochure (available) combining the the benefits of the larger Huntsman Hull with the economy of a single engine. This is a practical classic motor yacht and a real head turner with a 2019 survey describing her condition as above average.
Recent upgrades include new alternator, starter motor, flexible wet exhaust, windscreen glazing & custom cockpit cover.
