Built by Northshore Yachts of Itchenor in 1990, this Fisher 34 is a great example of this highly desirable craft. Out of all the Fisher range, the 34 is recognised as a boat that can actually sail. With her warm wheelhouse and generous space below decks, you can soon see the attraction when sailing in our Northern climes.
This is a ketch rigged version with 2 aluminium masts which have been converted to roller reefing. This is a super feature and allows the boat to be sailed short-handed and with greater sail control. The engine is the preferred Volvo MD22 which is renowned for its reliability and hardworking characteristics. Below decks has berths for 7 adults if required and is well appointed with storage making extended periods afloat a reality.
She is well equipped with both electronic navigation and safety equipment. These include radar, chart plotter, autopilot, NAVTEX, liferaft and flares. There is a tender and outboard for reaching shore from anchorages.

The accommodation is both generous and homely. This is divided into two distinct areas, the wheelhouse and the saloon.
The wheelhouse is large with helm to port. Opposite the helm is a bench where the crew can sit with lap belts for security in heavy weather. Situated here are the chart working area and the navigation aids.
Beneath this bench is the aft cabin with its double berth, hanging wardrobe and drawer storage. Beneath the berth itself is the hot water calorifier. Also stored here are the yacht legs. There are two opening ports into the wheelhouse for ventilation.
Opposite the aft cabin is the galley. Here we have a Neptune 2000 gas oven with 2-burner hob and grill. There is a large top loading coolbox fitted with an Isotherm cooling plate, and a stainless steel sink with pressurised hot and cold water and battery saving hand pumped cold water. Plentiful storage in cupboards, drawers, and shelving.
Midships is the saloon with curved L-shaped seating area to port and a conventional settee/berth to starboard. The port side settee converts to a double using an infill section with leg support. The upholstery is firm and comfortable. The fabric is a "blush" velour which has a few marks and stains but in overall good condition. Saloon table has drop leaves both sides and when extended can accommodate at least eight in comfort.
Between the saloon and the forward cabin is a heads compartment with Jabsco marine toilet with twist n lock flush, pull out shower and space-saving drop-down sink. Opposite the heads is the hanging space with his and her rails.
In the bow is a V-berth which can be used as two singles or with the addition of an infill, a spacious double.
The interior is clean and bright with lots of natural light and ventilation. There is 12V reading and deck lighting throughout. The boat is kept warm and dry by Eberspacher heating.
The interior went through an overhaul in 2007. This was carried out by Rustler yachts and included new teak and holly flooring in the saloon, complete interior varnish, new toilet and pipework, and new galley worktops.
