About this Fisher 37


The third model of the Fisher range to be built the Fisher 37 was the companies flagship model and continued in production with Northshore until the demise of Fisher production. Unusually for Fisher models there was never a MkII version with the owners customising the internal layout from the standard at the time of build. Retaining the iconic styling the Fisher 37 boast all the desirable features of her smaller sister ships including the high ballast ratio, walkaround decks, ketch rig and deep well protected cockpit. The class has proven to be a highly capable offshore cruiser with examples to be found cruising in all corners of the globe.

MALLARD II is an early example of the Fisher 37 class; she has benefitted from significant re-fitting in previous ownerships. Professionally maintained by the current owner she has been wintered ashore annually since 2010; fully winterised. The early layout below decks offers a spacious double forward cabin with 3 occasional berths in the saloon. Thoughtfully re-fitted in the wheelhouse here seating has been elevated to provide a view out of the windows when seated with a removable table creating a second saloon.
