Description

A Truly Stunning example of this classic motor yacht, designed originally by Ray Hunt and modified by Alan V. Burnard of Fairey Marine in Hamble. The Fairey Huntsman 28 was the pathfinder in fast offshore twin-screw diesel power-boating and is often seen as the yachtsman's choice. This Fairey Huntsman 28 is one of the best-presented classic Fairey powerboats to come to the market during the last decade Originally built in 1967 "Midnight Blue" has been totally refitted to the highest of standards during the last fifteen years of current ownership. If an as new 'Classic' is what you're after this is a must to view. Hull Refurbishment completed in 2011• Keel bolts and spray rails• Sub decks and new Teak decks and rubbing strakes• Back to wood hull and epoxied-two hull resprays in the interim.• New cabin coach roof.• Complete cabin interior refurb, new oven, new fridge, upholstery, heads etc.• New wiring and instruments, stereo, ship radio, Eberspaecher heater,• New water tank.• Two new stainless steel fuel tanks and pipework etc.• New windows installed in the cabin in 2021. Constant annual maintenance by professional boat builders. Owners’ Comments Midnight Blue’ is a kind and gentle boat, much loved, and I hope will be equally loved by her new owners. Brokers’ Comments It is a real privilege to be asked to market one of the best-presented classic Fairey powerboats to come to the market during the last decade. The Huntsman is one of the greatest motor cruisers of all time, "Midnight Blue " is hull number 94. Designed originally by Ray Hunt and modified by Alan V. Burnard of Fairey Marine in Hamble, the Fairey Huntsman 28 is renowned for very superior handling characteristics and seakeeping. During the late 1960s and 1970s they raced highly successfully offshore and gained many trophies. If a refurbished 'Classic' and part of the nation's heritage is what you're after this is a must to view. ‘Midnight Blue’ really is a credit to her owner who has been meticulous in her refurbishment and continued maintenance which include, most recently: Winter 2022/23 maintenance on Midnight Blue including replacement batteries, rubbing strakes taken to bare wood and re-varnished. The transom lettering will be redone (in gold leaf). Her cabin bilges have been repainted along with antifoul, anodes, general repairs, and engines servicing. 2021 insurance survey is available on request, a purchaser cannot place reliance on it however it is a good indicator of condition and surveyors' thoughts on value. Full information is available on the restorations and engine rebuilds.Viewing highly recommended by future "custodians" of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a sound Fairey Huntsman.
