Google 1962 Fairey Fisherman

Year: 1962  
Manufacturer: Boatshed Port Solent
Price: £17,995

I have to say I didn?t know much about these boats before I stepped aboard this delightful Fairey Fisherman, now for sale with Boatshed Port Solent. Everyone has heard of Fairey Marine of course, but fewer know about the 80 or so Fishermen that were built. The process and construction are intriguing, if you?d like to know more, give me a ring. The hull is based on Fairey design for a ship?s lifeboat (hence the canoe stern), so I don?t think there will be any issues with seaworthiness! These boats range from a few thousand pounds up to this example, sitting firmly at the top of the tree. She won the Concours D?elegance in the owner?s rally of 1999, and the present owner bought her shortly after that. Since then he has showered love and many hours upon her, and the result is a quite exceptional classic motor sailor. New engine, new chainplates, new stainless steel keel bolts, the list of improvements and proper maintenance is pretty comprehensive. It is difficult to convey just how bright and spacious she is down below, with brilliant storage and a classic feel to the interior woodwork. Not many boats have fitted drawers under the forward berths, and the galley area is a joy to behold. On the forward bulkhead there is a charming little watercolour of a Fairey Fisherman under sail, and this will be staying where it belongs – with the boat it depicts. Lift the engine cover and there is the 37.5 HP Beta diesel, fitted in 2006 and with only 100 hours on the clock. ?Why are they selling such a lovely boat?? I hear you cry! Well, just look at the engine hours and you can answer your own question. It?s simply that the ex-Royal Navy couple who own her have just not had the time to sail her in recent years. So folks, the only way you are going to get the measure of this cracking little boat is to come and see her, so give me a ring here at Boatshed Port Solent and we?ll set up a visit! These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
