31FT GENTLEMANS REGATTA MOTOR LAUNCH
Harrier was built in 2001/2 and was intended to be the first of a small fleet of high quality Harrier class boats her build number being 0001, due to the high cost of her construction no further boats were commissioned and so Harrier was the only boat produced making her a very interesting unique and rare boat.
Harrier was designed by Andrew Wolstenholme and was built to emulate the style and elegance of 80 years ago and combine it with modern technology.
The Regatta Launches of the past were greatly admired, but often many of their good features have over the years been modified or added to, sometimes merely for fashion, to the extent that the original good design has become lost.
From the past Harrier retains the elegant hull shape, large cockpit, easy cabin and decking, traditional timber, carved captains chairs. From the present a reliable engine, bow thruster, hydraulic steady steering, two fridges, hot and cold running water, an oven, warm air heating and toilet.
The hull shape has a fine entry bow, champagne fluted forward stations, strong shoulders amidships, to a tumblehome hull. The result is a very easily driven stable hull, which following tradition, requires very little power to propel it through the water. Eighty years ago, poor engine power required this design of hull, but now the result is a superb environmentally sympathetic hull.
The timbers used in her construction were chosen with care for strength and looks. The stern, knees and floor bearers are made from laminated oak. The hull is cedar sheathed in west system. The cockpit is in mahogany and red wood. The interior joinery is in mahogany and cherry wood. The decking, cabin and cockpit floors are in teak.
Harrier is a stunning and rare motor yacht, that is ideally suited for day cruising, its large cockpit giving ample space for crew and guests, its cabin from either rain, sun, or your friends in the cockpit. Harriers cabin is superb for over-nighting, being warm, cosy and convenient.
