At Lake Windermere on the owner's private mooring. Running superbly.
February 2023: Engines fully serviced; decks cleaned and sealed; new antifoul.
A very well cared for prestigious boat: Fairey Huntsman 31 Double Century very successful in the 1972 London to Monte-Carlo boat race.
Hull Number 23. This boat was purchased from Fairey Marine by David Palengat of Allied Domecq in 1971 and entered in the 1972 London to Monte Carlo powerboat race with race number 200. He skippered 'Double Century' with the Pearce brothers (who owned Mermaid Engines) finishing 6th overall, delayed after rescuing the crew from another boat. Thus, 'Double Century' was the Guest of Honour at the 1973 London Boat Show.
Fairey Huntsman 31 'Double Century' benefits from a painstaking renovation which includes back to bare wood on the hull and fitting new FPT (Fiat Power Train) 280 hp engines with new handed PRM transmissions (invoice available) giving 35 knots. Awlgrip epoxy paint.
Faultless off-shore passage in Summer 2021 from Southampton to Dartmouth and return. The engines have just been fully-serviced with only about 100 hours from new.
Extensive history file and Part 1 Registered for secure transfer of title.
