Fairey Spearfishes were made by the world-renowned Fairey Marine of Hamble and provide a soft and dry ride, because the hull shape was taken from the race-proven Fairey Huntsman 31.  Made in the early days of GRP by an aviation-standard company, Fairey Marine Spearfishes provide enviable classic power-boating. 'White Orchid' is a Spearfish Mk 1 - hull number 17, made in 1972 -  being very original throughout and is ready to enjoy as a day-boat or occasional weekender.   In the early '90s two Mermaid Majestic 'Dover' block 210 BHP re-conditioned 'mechanical' diesel engines were fitted.   These have done approximately 800 hours since and do not produce the black smoke associated with earlier 'Dorset' blocks. Made in GRP these Spearfishes are highly desirable being twin-screw diesel-engined power-boats from the golden era of the 1960s and early '70s. This Spearfish benefits from care and attention from both current and previous owners keeping this boat in very good original specification.   It has window-blinds that keep the cabin cool on a sunny day and a spray-hood plus a full awning. A new tonneau cover is on order.

Back on her berth at Southsea marina after support-boat duty at the start of the Cowes-Torquay-Race and running very well at 28 knots. Part 1 registered for secure transfer of title.
