1985 Fisher


$80,000 CAD

Holyrood , NL , CA

Oracle is a great example of the high build quality and robust design of the Fisher 37. In ready to sail condition, clean and well kept throughout,  she has the aft berth to port and galley to starboard. The spacious main salon amidships with the v-berth, head and storage closet forward provides ample room for long range cruising. The 360 degree view in the pilot house can be enjoyed while sailing or at anchor with ample seating and a flip up table for dining. Oracle is a must see for Fisher enthusiast and those looking for a solid, heavily built boat for long range cruising.  

Price reduced to $80,000 As is Where Is. Fuel Tank needs to be replaced.
