About this Swordsman 30


2005 Swordsman 30 is No.2 of Swordsman's award-winning powerboat based on the classic Fairey Spearfish hull and is ready for a new home. Based on the successful Fairey Spearfish design, this modern version outshines the original. The engine of this Swordsman 30 has been uprated and the addition of a bow thruster makes this boat very maneuverable.

The Swordsman 30 is a great boat for Coastal cruising and long weekends. She can sleep 4 comfortably and the cockpit is large enough to entertain more.

In addition to a spray hood, she has a full cockpit enclosure cover keeping her in pristine condition all year long. She has a new teak deck and updated chart plotted.

This Swordsman 30 benefits from a number of extras, including; heating, bow thruster and an electric anchor windlass. New batteries and charger November 2022.

Fairey Marine and Swordsman Marine

"The Legend Rekindled"

The most sought-after power boat of the 1960s was undoubtedly the Fairey Boat. A list of owners sounds like a who's who of one of the most exciting and innovative decades of British design; Sir Max and Lady Violet Aitken, Tommy Sopwith, actress Deborah Kerr, band-leader Billy Cotton and many others all owned at least one and a number of Fairey boats featured in the James Bond film "From Russia With Love".

Fairey boats combined comfort with spacious accommodation; a renowned seaworthiness with handling qualities second to none; and delivered performance, courtesy of the deep-V planing hull, such that the cruiser classes of numerous Cowes-Torquay and London-Monte Carlo races were successfully campaigned by Fairey boats.

Fairey Marine's designer was Alan Burnard, and today his proven hull design from the Fairey Spearfish forms the basis of the Swordsman 30.
