These little Fishers were built to a very high standard throughout with attention to detail and in particular safety. Her design derives from the classic Baltic fishing boats. As you move around the deck you get the feeling of being in being in her as opposed to being on her. She has high bulwarks and a deep foredeck. The same applies to her cockpit which will accommodate 4 - 6.

For a 25 footer, the accommodation is impressive. The first thing you notice as you descend into the saloon is how light and airy it feels as a result of the large windows, closely followed by the amount of headroom. The accommodation consists of a double berth in the fore cabin. a double berth in the saloon, which converts from the dinette seating and a quarterberth to starboard. Forward of the saloon and to port is the decent sized heads, opposite of which is a hanging locker. The galley area is to starboard opposite the dinette. Navigation area is provided by a slide out table above the quarterberth. It is not without reason that she has been described as a big little boat.

Broker's Comments

When viewed by the broker, this little Fisher was still in her winter plumage and so was not presented in her best light. However her potential quickly became evident, particularly with the amount of accommodation available. She was described in a yachting press review as "big little boat". Overall she appears to be in very good order throughout, the one area which may need some attention is the upholstery which is starting to look a little tired. The same applies to the some of the headlining in the forecabin. However that said, she did undergo a major refit in 2009/2010 which included a replacement engine, fitting of headsail furling gear, gelcoat repairs throughout and deck repainting. Add to this a decent navigation system and you have a very well equipped and safe vessel. As with all boats of this age, there will always be additional work to be done, however I believe this to be mainly cosmetic. All in all she is a great boat and worth considering, especially now that the price has been reduced, if this is what you are looking for.
