The Fisher 34 is probably one of the best motorsailers built.
The Fisher range of boats has enjoyed real popularity from the time they were first built in the early 1970s with a justified reputation for comfort and rugged sea-keeping. They have set the benchmark for motorsailers, providing the comfort and safety of a secure wheelhouse and a deep cockpit, ideal for year-round cruising.
