MELE KAI (song of the sea), a Fisher 37 built and commissioned in England, 1978, is now for sale with DBY Boat Sales. Ketch rigged pilothouse built to Lloyds specifications. A rare opportunity exists to secure the only one For Sale in Australia as far as we know!
The modern electronics onboard are very comprehensive and were all upgraded in 2018 including a 12 inch hybrid touchscreen Raymarine plotter, digital radar, autopilot, wind, speed and depth instruments, VHF radio with DSC, Fusion sound with bluetooth connectivity, a high output Victron battery charger and the entire switch panel are all current series.
Safety is a strong feature of all the Fisher models with the very high coamings, clear walk around deck spaces, deep cockpit area and fully enclosed secure wheelhouse.
The ever reliable, fresh water cooled Ford Sabre 80hp which has been recently serviced is in excellent condition and is well located under a series of removable floorboards giving good access space for servicing and also ensuring abundant, heavy duty sound proofing.
The layout of the pilot house has a single bunk to port which is also a U shaped lounge area by day. This can easily be converted to a proper double bed, right alongside the wheelhouse and just aft of the navigation table. What an incredible sea berth and immediately overhead she sports a very large sliding sunroof for those starry starry nights and added air flow.
Stepping down below to the galley area on port side with a near new 3 burner gas stove and oven. The large settee area which would seat 6 or more has a double hinged butterfly table that opens up to include the starboard side seating if required. It becomes a ballroom sized eatery for 8 or more!
A fully enclosed h/c shower and electric head with a holding tank are to starboard. Moving forward past the wardrobe with plenty of hanging space, there is the light and airy V berth. Set up as 2 wide single bunks side by side and has the option to include a bunk infill to be a generous queen sized bed. A large opening hatch is overhead.
The electric bow thruster is located underneath the V berth boards, inside a large and very accessible storage area. The bow thruster has a joystick at the helm area. A sturdy Muir electric anchor winch with ample chain storage in the separate locker and a Galvanised CQR on the double roller bowsprit.
Complete with a rigid inflatable and 8hp Mercury outboard, this is the complete package for safe passage making in any waters.
