Broker's Comments

The Fisher 25 is a well known, solid compact motor-sailor with a long production run that has barely changed in design even now.

The fully enclosed wheelhouse with large coachroof hatch allows her to be piloted whilst staying out of the weather however switch helms to the (cleverly stored) tiller and she sails from the cockpit comfortably.

Down below she has lots of space and is practical and well thought out. The chart table area doubles as extra work surface for the galley or folds away completely for access to the quarter berth. In the heads the basin neatly pulls out and disappears when not in use. She has brand new upholstery, most of it still in its coverings and is clean and dry and smells fresh

She is well spec'd, a bow thruster and electric windlass all make her attractive for short-handed sailing and her sails are as new, some appearing unused. All in all a great example of a well liked design. She's out of the water in a good yard and available for easy inspection
