SERIOUS OFFERS INVITED

Lifestyle changes and a grown-up family mean little use of this superb 1968 Fairey Swordsman 33 - rare Aft Cockpit model by the owner who has lovingly cherished this boat for 25 years. 


Fairey Owners Club Concours d'Elegance winner in 2014.


Carefully restored by a Fairey Marine marque specialist the new owner will benefit from extensive renovation work including:

Twin 210 HP Cummins Turbo diesel engines with only about 500 hours each; handed propellers. Recent service work for the new season includes 4 new batteries and a changeover switch between the two banks of batteries.

In 2013 the work included:
Back to bare wood paint with new screens and windows
New varnish and Coelan finish 
Coach roof and cabin sides epoxy sheathed and Awlgrip spray painted
Top-sides repainted.

In 2011 the major re-fit included but was not limited to:
New marine ply sub-deck and epoxy sheathed
Hull below water line stripped to bare wood and then epoxy sheathed
Reinforced oversize keelson and new engine bearers
New teak deck
New hardwood window surrounds and tinted acrylic windows
New drainage matrix to cockpit sole
New electric windlass
New cleats, deck fittings and re-chromed Sampson post
New stainless steel water tank 
Fuel tanks taken out and steam-cleaned
Bilge cleaned and re-painted
New: upholstery; carpet; interior vinyl to deck-head and cabin sides
New digital TV and iPod-ready four speaker sound system.

This is a ready-to-use Swordsman 33 that was top of the range when commissioned with extra reinforcing in the hull learnt from race practice.  Since the boat was not raced we consider Miss Emma Jane has strength in reserve.




Martin has many years of marine experience having learnt to sail in a Wayfarer on the Solent. Then followed an Enterprise dinghy, racing on Oxford’s Farmoor reservoir and sailing in the harbours of Chichester, Christchurch and also the River Rock at Padstow. Day Skipper (Sail) was gained on a Moody 36 out of Chichester to Alderney, Jersey and Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue. Day Skipper (Power) was gained on a Trader 44 out of Kingswear /Dartmouth. A share in a Van der Stadt design yacht on the River Hamble led to several Fairey powerboats including competing in an anniversary Cowes-Torquay event. One of those Fairey boats was a wooden Cowes-Torquay racer that Martin comprehensively renovated. Professionally, he started with high-technology engineering before writing computer programmes so evolving into the information technology sector.
