Designed by Wyatt and Freeman and supplied to the current owners by Pennington Yachts in 1973, this is a very good example of the very popular and comfortable Fisher 30 Motor Sailer.
Sailed extensively on the West Coast of Scotland, Ireland and Norway. The current owners found her to be a safe and comfortable family boat and took her on many cruises on the West Coast of Scotland with their three children and food for three weeks progressing as far as round Ireland, Orkneys and the Norwegian Fjords.
She handles well under sail alone and her powerful and reliable engine is always ready to assist when required. Built from GRP and fitted with teak bulwarks she has a spacious and comfortable wheelhouse with wheel steering and an aft cockpit with tiller steering. Now reduced in price she is particularly good value.
