Considered to be one of the best designed Motor Sailers built, the Fisher's strength is renowned for being able to deliver their crew safely to any destination in the world.
The Fisher seems to have been around for ever. In fact, the story of this classic motor-sailer began in 1969 when naval architects David Freeman and Gordon Wyatt set out to fill what they perceived as a gap in the market. Their aim was to design a motor-sailer with equal performance under either sail or motor.
The rest is history. Over 1,000 Fishers have been built and they can be seen all over the world, tucked up in harbour after a long passage or pottering along the coast. With its traditional Colin Archer-inspired canoe stern, angular trawler style wheelhouse, and high, chunky, work-boat-derived bow the Fisher looks familiarly timeless, friendly and reassuring.
Today, the Fisher is a popular as ever with a good second-hand market too, they hold their value well. There is a very active owners association.
Our friends at Fisher Yachts International found this wonderful old brochure, which we think dates to 1975/1976 with the full Fisher Yachts range that was available at the time.
So wonderful to see that these fantastic yachts still look as purposeful as they ever have done. We’re very excited to be working with FYI in launching a new generation of Fisher Yachts to a new generation of adventurous sailers. You can download the brochure here and look at the great range of Fishers that were available at the time
