Description

Very smart green-hulled Fisher 34 in MkIII guise with a great spec for effortless all-weathers cruising. A beautifully constructed boat with a cult following, and perfect for use all year round.

FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
The Fisher 34 MkII is thought by many to be the ultimate Fisher design. Offering the optimum mix of timeless looks, comfortable accommodation with the better performance of the sloop rig. A UK tax paid example of the class PUFFIN has been lightly used since her build in 2007, with her first owner for just a handful of years. Her current owners moved her to Scotland where she has spent the rest of her time gentle cruising the Western Isles during a short summer season, wintering ashore annually.

Offered for sale in a ‘sail away’ condition she has a comprehensive inventory which boats:
• Masthead sloop rig.
• Folding mast steps to mast head.
• Cruising chute
• Electric windlass
• Bow thruster
• Black water and Grey water holding tanks
• Raymarine instrumentation, including radar.
• Raymarine autopilot.
• Raymarine Life Tag MOB system.

Requiring very little to make her perfect, PUFFIN is competitively priced to sell. Viewing strictly by prior arrangement.

OWNERS COMMENTS:
This lovely, characterful boat has been a delight to us. She has had very light use with us, mainly around the Sound of Mull in the West of Scotland. She has proved to be just right for our Scottish climate, as the wheelhouse protects one from the elements so well. She has been well maintained by a custodian who attends to her on her mooring and has spent the winters on the hard, in the care of a marine mechanic and yard.

She is very comfortable and snug. I am an author and some of my books in the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series have been written on board Puffin.

What I have particularly loved about her is her looks. She is a very beautiful boat, and wherever we go she turns heads. People have got to know her in the West of Scotland and she gets many admiring glances.
