Fisher 37

Has anyone sailed a Fisher in southern climes? Can you open it up and get it ventilated?

Do they sail? Well?

Thanks,

DW

I think ventilation on a Fisher should be at least as easy as on a boat with a lower profile.

As far as sailing ability the quote below describes it well I think. Bluff bows and a lot of top hamper don't make for good windward performance.

The picture and quote relate to the 34 but the entire line of Fishers is very similar in hull design and profile. Both are from Yachtsnet UK.

I have always liked their sturdy looks.

Here's the link to Yachtsnet's Archives - scroll down to Fisher Archive boat data from Yachtsnet Ltd. online UK yacht brokers - yacht brokerage and boat sales

"I have always liked their sturdy looks."

My sentiments exactly.
