This Fisher 25 is a lovely example and has fine lines and feels like a real little ship. I think she has been looked after well over the years as is evident from the October 2012 favourable survey.This Fisher was refurbished in 2006. New Propellor 2010. Great side-decks which make her a very good boat for people with children or animals. The current owner is so happy with this boat that he is now going to buy a larger FIsher.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Fisher 25 is reputed to have been laid up from 1981 for 15 years. Since then she has had 5 owners and underwent refurbishment and engine renewal in 2006. She was then put to sea in 2008.
This boat has the feel of a real little ship even though she is only 25'. Her current owner has enjoyed cruising on her with his family of four. He appears to have maintained her well and has invested in a high tech JAYCAR Ultrasonic Antifouling system and a number of other upgrades. She looks good and smells nice too and there was no hint of dampness below decks. She benefits from good navigational equipment and cabin heating. The next thing on the to do list is the exterior varnishing and the owner is in the process of stripping of the existing varnish. Apart from that she is a lovely vessel and will serve her new owners well.
She is the best example of this type that I have seen.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
