About this Fairey Huntress

English

Hermes was built to Royal Navy Huntress specification and fitted out by Groves & Gutteridge of Cowes in 1966. She served on the aircraft carrier HMS Hermes as the captains launch until she was decommissioned in 1986. since then she has had several owners and was purchased by her current owners in March 2017 who have used her for leisure cruising and around the Solent . She is a fantastic boat and a real eye catcher when cruising at speed and a delight when resting at anchor in one of the many picnic estuaries and bays in the area. James Bond fans will recognize this boat from the spectacular speed boat chase featured in the film from Russia with Love. A truly delightful classic motor boat with proven provenance in full working order and ready to go and comes with an original MOD Huntress manual !
