Venator is hull No 1 of the Fairey Huntsman 31, of a production run of 32 hulls. This Huntsman, under it's previous name of Typhys was used in the original Fairey Huntsman 31 brochure. 
In 2006, Venator broke its mooring during a storm, hit some rocks and sank. It was recovered and taken to a Solent boatyard where it sat on the hard for 10 years. During this time it was restored by a Fairey boat maintenace and restoration specialist. The interior was painstakingly put back to her original 1967 factory appearance and ex-MOD Ford Sabre 212c engines were fitted about 2015. 
The Fairey Huntsman 31 is renowned for the soft and dry ride and a top speed of over 30 knots can be achieved.
