$15,000  USD  (Project Condition)

 

Survey value from 2 years ago was $30k usd

Yanmar 3gm30f (currently not running) approx 100-200 hrs on engine

Hull had blistering when I first purchased the boat. I took it out of the water, ground from the water line down to bare fiberglass and let it dry, covered, and with a fan for a year. Once the hull was dry I smoothed over the divots with west systems epoxy filler. After that, numerous coats of west systems barrier coat epoxy was applied, then bottom paint after that. No signs of blistering has appeared since. 

The boat is in project condition, similar to when I originally purchased it.  Included in the sale is about $3k worth of grey uhmw to replace the rest of the exterior teak for a virtually maintenance free exterior.

Approximately $1300 worth of upholstery work was done 2 years ago to the aft cabin and also the helm seating areas.

Dickinson Pacific diesel stove for heat and cooking. Hot water coils could be added easily along with a tank and you would have endless hot water!

Both masts are currently removed. Included is a stainless stern hanging dinghy rack.

A few sets of sails are included and are in good condition. Lots of spare parts and extras.

 The boat is currently located in Craig, Alaska. There are services here such as mechanics, marine supply stores, and barge lines if shipping would need to be arranged.

 She needs some love, more love than I can give and have given her due to my work schedule being out to sea for most of the year.

 Best way to contact me would be email as I am out of cellphone service most of the time.

Fisher 30 (1979) "Old Squaw" is for Sale

Owner's Comments
Fairways Marine Fisher 30

After many years of sailing, sometimes, short-handed, sometimes single- handed, I came to the conclusion that my ideal boat would have the following characteristics: 1) She would have to be small enough for me to handle alone without ever feeling pressed, but she would have to be roomy enough for couple to cruise comfortable for extended periods, and for two couples to use for a few days. 2) The construction and design had to be first rate. Though I would use her mainly for coastal cruising and passages of two or three days, she would have to be capable of taking almost everything the sea would throw at her, making her crew feel secure and keeping it comfortable. 3) Having spent many nights in an open cockpit, cold, wet and miserable, I wanted a vessel with an enclosed pilot house, and since I had seen almost all sailboats use power at least as often as canvas, she would have to be a motor sailer, fast and economical under engine, and not a dog under sail. 4) Above all, she would have to be beautiful . By this I mean that her form had to reflect her function in an unambiguous manner, and that when I came to her in her slip I would have to feel joy at seeing her. The Fisher 30 with her heavy displacement hull descended from North Sea fishing boats, her canoe stern, her heated pilot house that allowed me to use her the year around, her performance under both sail and power, and last but not least, her rugged good looks, fit all of these requirements

After purchasing the boat April 2009 my wife and I cruised the Spanish Mediterranean coast for 7 months including a open water trip to Palma comfortably and efficiently, and she has turned heads wherever she has gone.

THERE WERE 1600 ON THE CLOCK BEFORE THE ENGINE WAS PULLED OUT, TOTALLY DISASSEMBLED REBUILT IN 2008. SINCE OVERHALL ENGINE TIME HAS BEEN APPROX 283 HOURS.
IN NOVEMBER 2009 THE GEAR BOX WAS (TRANSMISSION) WAS COMPLETELY REBUILT, WASTE HOLDING TANK INSTALLED, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM REWIRED FOR THE U.S., AND THE RUDDER WAS REBUILT TO DOUBLE THE SIZE. IN APRIL 2010 PILOT HOUSE HATCH REPLACED AND COVERS FOR BOTH HATCHES. NEW SCREENS FOR FORWARD HATCH AND 7 WINDOWS AND PILOT HOUSE DOOR. IN AUGUST 2010 THE FUEL PUMP WAS COMPLETELY REBUILT WITH NEW INJECTORS.
