OverviewWith its traditional Colin Archer-inspired canoe stern, trawler style wheelhouse and work-boat-derived bow, the Fisher looks familiarly timeless, friendly and reassuring.
Built in 2003 for the Southampton Boat Show, this MK III sloop has a full-length galley, improved heads and roomier forward cabin.
The Maple wood creates a warm and airy interior and the sloop rig allows for double doors to open into the cockpit to create a more 'spacious' feel.
She has the added benefit of sailing remarkably well for a motor-sailer, due to her sloop rig.
Powered by the more powerful Yanmar 4JH3-TE 75hp single diesel engine, this Fisher 34 MK III combines the best of everything in space, strength, performance and power - the ideal mid-range yacht for coastal or blue water cruising.
"This is a yacht for the individual. A long-keeled, high-bowed double-ender that will see you through rough conditions and keep you dry while she's at it". "Uncompromisingly high-standard construction and the best quality hardware and furnishings" - Classic Boat, March 2011.
