Broker's Comments

The Fairey marine company was synonymous with inventive and enduring design. This boat, number 698 came off the production line in 1980. She is one of only seven boats produced and of those seven it is believed only three survive.

She has the stamp of a utility vessel, produced to do a job of work in exacting and demanding conditions.

With her excellent helming wheelhouse, safety bulkheads and generous working areas, and a well protected accommodation area she could be suitable for a wide range of tasking; dveboat, work launch, sea fishing, etc.

This is a serious boat and coupled with her unmatched power plant and many utility features she could be an excellent investment and a great asset whatever your application. It has to be said a significantly historic vessel, certified as such, she demands attention wherever she operates.

Her current owner has completed considerable renovation but has left her intact, preferring the utility styling. She looks ready for duty, wherever she is called.

These boat details are subject to contract.
