Rupert is a very beautiful mahogany decked open boat with solid brass deck fittings and is based on a restored Fairey Faun 5 ply hot moulded, laminate wooden hull. Whilst resembling and often mistaken for a classic steam boat, he is actually powered by a vintage 12 horse power Dolphin 2 stroke petrol engine, exhausting through a traditionally styled steam boat funnel. Owned by a member of the Classic Motorboat Association of Great Britain the boat has attended CMBA rallies, the British Classic Motorboat rally at Windermere and also the Thames Traditional Boat rally at Henley for which it qualifies. Rupert was renovated and converted to its present form approximately 7 years ago. The boat is in superb condition and the hull, which is incredibly durable, is completely leak free. The engine is very reliable and starts first time. Rupert comes with a fully waterproof, canvas cover and road trailer. The boat is priced to sell as space is needed for a new project. If you are interested in viewing Rupert you will no doubt be impressed as there is nothing to disappoint. This boat is unique and a real head turner.
