Safety is of paramount concern to all who go to sea. The Swordsman answers those safety factors in a number of ways.
The hull has a proven record for being 'sea kindly' and resilient. You will probably give up before she does! The ride is designed to be comfortable, ensuring that you and your guests can relax and feel confident in the boat.
Considerable thought has gone into the accessible side decks and grab rails, enabling crew to move easily and safely around the decks.
2008 Zodiac C240 tender
Fairey boats combine comfort with spacious accommodation; a renowned seaworthiness with handling qualities second to none; and performance, courtesy of the deep vee planing hull, such that the cruiser class of numerous Cowes-Torquay and London-Monte Carlo races were successfully campaigned by Fairey boats.
The heritage of Fairey has provided the soundest of platforms, but times and materials have moved on.
A sleek new cabin roof has replaced that of the working boat. It is designed to ensure that the deceptive 'gentleman's launch' look, so popular with motor and yachtsmen alike, is retained on the Swordsman 37.
For construction the latest honeycomb fibreglass techniques are employed, which produce a stronger but lighter hull. The weight reduction allows for the larger tanks required by today's owners and families. The material also more accurately simulates the softer ride normally only experienced in wooden boats.
