Construction

Swordsman 40 to a design by Alan V. Burnard (of Fairey Marine fame) built in 2006 by Bridgend Boat Company Ltd. (well known for their Nelson and custom motorboat builds). Blue (professionally resprayed 2015) GRP deep V planing hull design based on the famous Fairey Dagger high speed commercial hull used in military and other applications. White GRP superstructure. Teak laid deck and cockpit sole.

'Kittiwake' has had two owners from new, with her current owner purchasing her in 2009. Since this time she has cruised the East coast, coming ashore for regular maintenance including new anodes and antifoul earlier in Spring 2018. The original construction was to a very high specification and they were one of the most expensive (£ per ft) and exclusive production boats of their time.
