HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:
Although little is known of her early history, SUNSTAR is believed to have been built as an open aft cockpit twin-screw motor yacht with flat transom, and then later extended to a canoe type stern with enclosed stateroom aft of wheelhouse sometime in the late 1920s. Her engines were originally twin-cylinder Hyland petrol. SUNSTAR was re-engined in the 1940s with two Brit four-cylinder petrol engines, later changed to twin BMC 1.5 diesel engines in 1963.
SUNSTAR was built in 1927 by the well-know Windermere boatbuilders Borwick & Sons. She was first re... read more

One of the last ever made Gentlemans wooden motor cruiser. Just after this one was completed, motor yachts went over to that new fangled idea of fibreglass. She is beautiful example which has had caring owners all her life which is evidenced by how well found she is today. In recent times she has been repainted, re-caulked and a professional ship-wright has attended to any small jobs that have been needed. She is a proper boat from a bygone age, although a capable coastal boat, she would also be very at home on a lake or river. In particular I can envisage her pottering along the Thames with a... read more

A rare opportunity to own a true classic!
"Scimitar" is a lovely example of this sought after classic centre cockpit motor boat, she gives great credit to both the designs and builders at Fairey Marine.
Not many boats are baked in an oven, and not many boats built three and a half decades ago still command a healthy level of interest.
Very few marques have the pedigree of this Fairey Swordsman which is now seriously for sale as her owner feels that she deserves a new home, and all good things must sadly come to an end.
This boat has a modified interior, with a new layout to... read more

HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:
In 1935 Geoffrey Livingston of the Hollies, Leicester commissioned Arthur Comben of Hyland Ltd to refine his design of a 42ft sea-going motor yacht to be kept on the East Coast.

One year has passed since the passing of her owner, prior to that he was unwell and so the vessel has not had much use since.
That said, the boat is well maintained with the heating system on low, the engines turned over regularly and hence she does not suffer from any musty smells or signs of neglect.
The deck has been sanded and is awaiting oiling as part of regular upkeep.
The following is a summary of the extensive 4 year re-fit:
2016 – 2019: the following re-fit works were undertaken:
