Liberty has spent an average of 5 months in the water each season with the remaining 7 months under the bespoke cover (picture taken before gable ends are fitted) and she was laid up ashore for two summer seasons when we were too busy to enjoy her.

2.  Broker's informal comment.

It is well-known that rain and sunlight cause damage to wooden boats so there is a growing trend for boats to be fitted with all-over covers to protect the varnish and wood-work when not in use.

'Liberty' benefits substantially from that small but carefully considered investment to provide protection from the elements.

Last Revised: Mar 18, 2020

Martin Hasker's career has been as a pathfinder in Information Technology and high-technology sectors with marine activities an essential activity over the last 40 years.

Currently renovating a wooden Fairey race-boat from the early ‘60s. Martin’s experience is a mixture of sail and power – with time-keeping at races during Cowes Classic week for good measure.

Learning to sail in a Wayfarer dinghy led to a share in a Van der Stadt designed yacht on the River Hamble and in turn to several Fairey powerboats including competing in an anniversary Cowes-Torquay event.

A ‘people-person’ Martin’s skills in Account Management and Partner Development have been honed over the years from the workshop floor in F1 teams to Downing Street and the City.
