This Fisher 30 motorsailer was built to Lloyd’s Specifications in the UK in 1978. Modeled after North Sea trawlers, Fishers are very rugged built and can take the big water. She will always get you home no matter the seas. We had a 1977 Fisher 25 for years and enjoyed her no end cruising the Maine Coast. We stepped up to this F30 in 2019, but unfortunately she was only in the water for one season before the pandemic kept us home. Now we are forced to sell for health reasons.
She had a full marine survey in 2018 and was found to be in good condition overall with only a few minor maintenance issues noted. The previous owner installed a new 40 HP Volvo diesel engine. She starts easy and runs strong, and is barely broken in at 450 hours. About all she needs is to replace some of the running rigging lines.
She has been stored inside with the masts down.
I have a video taken recently of the engine running smoothly.
Will entertain all offers.
