Fisher Cat - Cat Fisher - Catamaran - Strong multihull

This is a very good example of a remarkable and sought-after yacht. With full headroom throughout her accommodation both cabins and saloon are far bigger in terms of living than a plan view would suggest.The outdoor areas provide lots of flat surfaces, good for lounging, sunbathing etc. On this yacht, home comforts are especially well catered for with an efficient air-conditioning system, TV and video and water heating, The ketch rig is easy to handle and the twin props make mooring a doddle; she can spin round in her own length. The cockpit is deep, safe and comfortable and the twin steering positions give a choice not usually found on a yacht of this length.

The sea keeping qualities of Fishers are well known and no less so with the Catfisher. Although designed as a motor sailer she will make to windward under sail alone. She has a new mast with in mast roller reefing. Under engine she will cruise at over six knots. On this yacht the fuel capacity has been doubled to 60 gals imp.

The boat is being sold with everything on board including equipment which has not yet been installed.

The condition of this vessel appears very good and she was being sailed and lived aboard regularly before the current owner took her out of the water to give her a full upgrade and refurbishment.

A full osmosis prevention treatment has recently been completed and the hulls have been painted white. She is being sold as is, with some of the work still to be done, however this is reflected in the price, which is £30,000 Sterling.

Her status is both Duty paid and VAT paid in Cyprus.

Currently on the hard, where any further work may be carried out in the comfort of a proper marina environment.
