Fisher 25

To date 255 of these stout little ships have beebuilt Perfect for a couple wanting an easily handled, take-anything cruiser, her bluff bows contain a spacious, two-berth cabin. Thesaloon is roomy with a generous galley to starboard and a dinette opposite. A Quarterberth provides either a seaberth or guest accommodation. The wheelhouse hasgood headroom and contains the navigation station. The cockpit is also a reasonable size but visibility forward is restricted. In light conditions and to windward, the rig provides stability but little more. But off the wind in Force 4 she potters along happily.Engines of around 27hp were fitted.
