Fraser Yachts were built near Vancouver by the DeKleer Bros in Richmond, BC, Canada. They built a range of boats including the Fraser 30, 36, 41, 42 and 51/53 and also produced various versions of the Endurance 35 under licence.
There are plenty of their boats around in the PNW - if it surveys well it should be a decent boat. I'm not sure of the design pedigree, but believe they were in-house efforts.
They offered hull/deck kits as well as fully finished yachts on a semi-custom basis and have a good rep for glass work and ruggedness. I believe the prinicipals have retired/passed on and don't think they are still in operation.
The only caution I suppose would be to know if it's an owner-finished or a factory finished boat and inspect it with that knowledge or speculation.
