This third owner, 1972 (refitted 2012) Fairey Huntsman 31 represents a unique opportunity for a new owner with a passion for these boats to take advantage of a recent extensive refit at a price that reflects the owners unfortunate change of circumstances and a need for some basic cosmetic and mechanical work to get her back in to original condition.

Powered by twin Ford Mermaid engines (new 1992) with comfortable accommodation for four with galley and heads with shower.

This Fairey Huntsman 31 Aft Cabin "Brig-Y-Don" was purchased by her current owner in late 2011 (survey available although almost irrelevant) and then was carefully restored including a new teak deck, full repaint and various other including extensive mechanical works by professional boat builders at great expense to ensure that she was structurally and mechanically sound and in Concourse condition.

The pictures included with this Specification show details of the refit along with current images showing her condition now. She was last used in Spring 2014 and is offered for sale by owners who understand her restored value however also accept that quite a bit of elbow grease is needed to get her back in to her perfect 2012 condition.

Prior to her 2012 /13 refit when Bill Dunlop the renowned Fairey surveyor and former employee of the Fairey Marine factory surveyed her in September 2011 he reported that:

"`Brig-Y-Don', ex 'Toros', is now some thirty-nine years of age and has the stiffened hull with the Mark II air intakes. Below decks she is a complete time warp, being virtually original except for the fit out of the heads and slight modifications to the galley. She has obviously been very well maintained and not abused, therefore showing very few areas requiring attention"

Full Title documents for secure transfer of title.

Viewing highly recommended by future "custodians" of this once in a lifetime opportunity to own a sound Fairey Huntsman.
