This is Huntsman 28 hull number 3 built in 1961, she was at one time the works taxi used between the yard at Hamble Point and the yard in Cowes, travelling daily back and forth across the Solent.

She was also  for sale in the post office window in Hamble in 1999 and really wanted to buy her but could not quite manage it at the time, hence I have known the whereabouts of this boat for 21 years.

A substantial refit was undertaken about 10 years ago, the wheelhouse was replaced with a windscreen for a more open and sporting look. A fine pair of Mermaid 180hp engines installed.

She is presented very well with a fastidious owner that keeps everything in working order.
