    Swordsman - 40 for sale

    Motor BoatsavailableSwordsmanModel 40

    Price reduced October 2020

    Previously sold by this broker

    Developed from the Fairey Marine and James Bond stable, this Swordsman 40 is ideal for taking some overdue holiday. She is presented in excellent condition and is powered by twin Cummins CE 480hp marine diesel engines to twin Rolls Royce water jets and Rolls Royce Vector positioning system with Joystick control.

    The Swordsman 40 uses the GRP Fairey Dagger hull design which was originally a military boat also used by customs and police. The seakeeping shape of the immensely strong hull is highly respected for boats of this size giving very comfortable passage making.

    She has to be driven to understand why she is so special, the maneuvering is so precise that she can be moved in any direction and docked anywhere with her joystick control Rolls Royce Vector dynamic positioning system. You can berth her whatever the conditions against a pontoon with the engines running and tie her up single-handed.

    With water jets any propeller noise is eliminated as are any worries about fishing pot lines and nets. With no propellers her draft is reduced and she can dry out in mud or on sand.

    Her aft cabin superstructure designed by Alan Burnard the renowned Fairey Marine designer gives this Swordsman 40 pleasing classical lines. She sleeps six in a large aft ensuite double, a convertible U shaped saloon and a forward V berth with additional day head. She benefits from Mastervolt 6Kw Whisper Gen generator, 12 - 220v Inverter, reverse cycle air conditioning throughout and Mikuni water heater.

    Navigation equipment by Simrad and Raymarine includes 2KW radar / chart plotter, GPS, autopilot, DSC VHF, depth and log.

    The deck of this Swordsman 40 is complemented by a stainless steel and teak bathing platform with ladder and snap davits for her tender. Anchor equipment includes a Lofrans deluxe electric windlass with remote radio chain counter. She has canvas work for all seasons which includes a sprayhood, and full cockpit tent (new 2016) and a bimini.

    Specially built for one of the directors of Swordsman Marine to his exacting standards and maintained by them until she changed hands she is now offered by her third owner; this Swordsman 40 has been extremely well maintained.

    Many recent upgrades along with four coats of resin applied to hull prior to applying new copper coat antifoul.
