A 1998 Northshore built Fisher 25 with dark blue hull - a classic little motor sailor with comfortable accommodation and an easily handled ketch rig. This example is in great condition, with the interior being pretty much like new - certainly the best I have seen.
She also benefits from having had a new Volvo engine and prop fitted in 2017, bow thruster and of course, interior heating. A very well maintained example - with very little work required for next season. Hull has been copper-bottomed.
The transom stern (the only Fisher to have one) maximizes the cockpit space and the transom-hung rudder can be controlled either by tiller from the cockpit or from the comfort of the wheelhouse in inclement weather.
