Arguably the finest HUNTRESS 23 in existence, she has been rebuilt to a breathtaking standard from the keel up and beautifully finished in Awlgrip paint. The work carried out on her over a 6 year period is far too comprehensive to be detailed here but ensures she will last for many more years to come. She is a joy to inspect. She really does have to be seen to be believed. A 2011 varnish refresh has ensured she gleams this season.
“Fairey Nuff has been restored and up rated to an excellent standard, without losing the style of the original.”
“She is in effectively as-new condition, but with a better specification than original.
“The hull has been significantly strengthened, the decks up rated with teak, the engine replaced with a lighter, quieter and cleaner type, and finally an excellent brand of high gloss finish applied over epoxy protection”
