Fisher 25 MKII

The reason for me putting this up here is that i got asked about them when i was in Garstang last weekend and happened to be staring one in the face and thinking that it looked really really pretty

The designers of the original MKI Fisher 25 have brought the design into the 21st century and have secured another yard to build these heavy displacement "small" fishing type motor sailors The guys building them are Neil Marine in Sri Lanka probably because the original quality fit and finish of those craftsmen and quality of materials is already there so it keeps costs down (a lot) compared to the European and US plastics. The Fisher 25 is near damn a wooden boat that is sheathed in grp with the pig iron inside the grp. structurally unreal - you'd be trying very very hard if you managed to severely damage one. they reckon that you could take it anywhere and know that you're gunna be totally fine

The guy to speak to is roger and he can be found at the website is Fisher Motor Sailers and Yachts these little boats can take the worst of anything - can sleep 5 in total luxury - have a proper head, a proper galley and enough space to swing the proverbial cat and the wheelhouse is truly unreal in terms of size with a full size chart table plus enough space to put down a brew without spilling it also available as either a ketch or sloop rig.

The weight of the Fisher 25 MKII is in the region 61/2 English tons proper loads of pig iron in the bottom of frame work and the whole interior of the boat looks like a proper English country house with all the trimmings -- the only thing that's missing is the wood burner but I'm sure someone will fit one

If anyone wants more info etc.... give me a shout and I'll send you the pdf's and as much info as i got from roger

there are 2 other Fishers - a sloop or ketch 34 and a cutter rigged 37 both of these plus a version of the 25 MKI are available to be custom built by Northshore - the guys responsible for the Southerly yacht range
