Broker's Comments

The Fisher 30 was the first model in the on-going modern classic that is the Fisher motor sailer range. Built by Fairways Marine the Fisher 30 is small enough to be handled by a single person and large enough to cruise with two in real comfort, especially in wet weather.

They rarely come up for sale on the second hand market and they are cherished by their owners. She is the ideal cruising motor sailer for a family being solid, very seaworthy, safe and robust with plenty of room.

This example has been in the same careful ownership for the past 10 years and is now being offered for sale as the owners retire from the water. Well looked after she is completely original inside. Some of the navigation aids are from a previous era, and a new owner may like to give her a minor cosmetic overhaul. For me she is great now and ready for cruising this summer.
