In spite of her compact size, the Fisher 25 still retains the ‘Big’ boat feel with a performance that attracts many experienced yachtsmen who are ‘Downsizing’ from larger yachts but are still looking for quality and style.
Unlike her bigger sisters the Fisher has a transom stern (not canoe) and provides for a large and comfortable cockpit for working sails and relaxing.
The Fisher 25 with sloop rig as standard, can be steered from the tiller or from the comfort of the wheelhouse.
The ‘Tardis-like’ interior is impressive by any standards for a 25 footer. The snug saloon has L- shape seating and dinette facilities for four people. The settee can convert to a double berth if required and a full length quarter berth is located to starboard.
Internal joinery is solid teak or teak veneered plywood, with teak and holly laminate applied to the cabin sole.
The galley is to starboard, with a stainless steel sink and a gimballed cooker with two burners, grill and oven. There is plenty of stowage for crockery and food. An insulated icebox is located under the quarter berth which can be refrigerated as an option if required.
The forward cabin has two full length single berths with storage below. There is also a compact heads compartment with a large hanging locker opposite
This remarkable little yacht was first produced in 1975 and to date over 250 have been built.
The wheelhouse, as with all Fishers, is a distinctive and practical feature, providing a warm and safe environment in poor weather.
The interior helm position is to port with a folding helmsman’s seat. Further seating for crew/guests with excellent all round visibilty.
