History & Construction

The Fisher 34 built by Northshore has a heavy duty laid green GRP moulding hull with a white GRP deck. The lead ballast is encapsulated in the GRP keel. The hull was stripped back in 2009, completely dried out and relayed with a new coat of GRP, epoxied and copper coated. The Treadmaster on the decks was all replaced and windows were reset. This boat has been owned by the current owner for the past 4 years who has done a huge amount of work to complete the internal renovation.
