David Skellon - Swordfish 36
in 1989, the man at the helm of the Swordfish team was David Skellon. A former airline pilot with a lifetime of experience in both ocean going sailing and offshore power boating. Responsible for the legendary Fisher range of motor sailers from the late sixties and seventies, David brought his pilot’s sense of perfection to the Swordfish project and allowed no compromise in all aspects of Swordfish creation.
David worked alongside Alan Burnard and Ken Freivokh to create the final design, then sculptured several models and many drawing board lines, to oversee the design and engineering of the Supermarine Swordfish 36.
