Overview

This boat needs to be seen to be believed and being a Fairey affecionado myself, has to be the nicest one I have ever had the opportunity of listing. Owned by an extremely fastidious owner, she has literally been "re-built". The specification barely covers everything that has been replaced but noticeable improvements include adopted spray rails to give this Swordsman the driest ride over other 33's, re-engine with 225hp Sabre Lehmans with very low hours.

She was lifted ashore from March - October 2017 where she benefitted from the following: full hull and topsides re-paint, re-varnish with 8 coats of high gloss Epifanes, antifouling, new anodes, stern gear burnished and renewed signwriting (details of materials used available upon request). If you want a Fairey Swordsman 33 look no further. NEW INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR PHOTOS NOVEMBER 2017.

Currently lying afloat Hayling Island, viewings available 7 days a week via prior appointment only through the Chichester office.
