2017 Huntsman 28

Year 2017
Length 28'9 ft / 8.76 m

Originally designed in 1960 by the revered Naval Architect Alan Burnard, the Huntsman 28 is possibly one of the greatest motor yacht designs of the twentieth century. Synonymous with style and performance it has become a unique part of our maritime heritage.

This iconic vessel has superb sea-keeping qualities and a historic pedigree in the Cowes-Torquay, round Britain and London-Monte Carlo races. With 'film star' looks and previously owned by lords and ladies alike, the new Huntsman meets the modern expectations of the discerning owner.

Today, Fairey Marine has taken the original concept of this elegant motor yacht with its straight sheerline and subtle tumblehome and transformed it into something befitting a Superyacht Tender.

The Huntsman has undergone subtle and sympathetic changes to rejuvenate and enhance its original design with a sensitively modernised interior, up-rated engines and systems, and exterior comforts conducive to socialising with friends and family. It is completed to an exceptional standard, something which can only really be achieved with a hand-built sports boat.

The Huntsman is available in various layouts (only limited by structural constraints) and comes in an extensive range of colours and material finishes to satisfy any taste. In the case of a Superyacht Tender, it can be tailored to suit the styling of the mother vessel. With responsive handling and powered by conventional propeller and shaft drive, the Huntsman 28 is not only a must-have for its timeless looks but also its proven sea-keeping capabilities and superb performance.

With its modern construction and clean styling the Huntsman 28 proves the theory of natural selection.
