All about Fisher Boats brand
When you look at the number of engine hours on a modern sailboat's clock, and you see that its mainsail has only two reefing bands, you can easily explain the propensity of sailboats to move around mainly with the help of their auxiliary engines...
That said, why not adapt the hull to a more powerful engine?
This is precisely why we have motorsailers, also known as fifties along the French coastline.
The honing of production techniques for sailboats throughout the world is gradually leading to standardised production.
This is unfortunate, as some market segments, such as the motor sailor segment, end up being totally neglected by the industry.
When David Freeman and Gordon Wyatt, two British naval architects, searched together for a boat to buy in the early 1970s, their search ended in total disappointment.
None of the British produced boats were able to satisfy them.
Their specifications were simple: an all-weather yacht with a closed wheelhouse and a powerful engine, but that was also capable of operating properly under sail.
This is how the robust and seaworthy Fisher Yachts motorsailers came to be!
These Norwegian stern, point and long keel motorsailors, built between the mid 1970's and late 1980's, were available in a range of lengths from 25' to 38'.
They can be sloop or ketch rigged and have two or three cabins, depending on their length.
The most successful models by the Fisher shipyard were the Fisher 25 and Fisher 30, two spacious ketches with comfortable interior volumes, a favourable counterpart to their dunnage.
