    I don't like it either - what's the problem with that?

    No problem at all. But knowing why you don't like it could be viewed as a more constructive way of posting an opinion.

    Ok.

    Galley looks like the kitchen in a dodgy rent-a-cottage.

    Nowhere to sit on deck.

    Nowhere to sit at inner helming position.

    White upholstery looks like a docklands flat, circa 1979.

    Bizarre genoa sheeting arrangement with no obvious place to brace yourself when winding - yes, I know, they're probably electrical winches.

    Odd break in the foredeck.

    Nowhere obvious to stow warps and fenders.

    Stainless steel guard rails look a bit agricultural.
    Next time, it'll all be different.

    That's better.
    Out of interest, what is this perfect boat with all the right features?
    It must sell very well.

    The trouble with the perfect boat is that if it existed, no one could afford it.

    Any boat is a compromise - your Fisher is compromised in a way that suits you.

    If money were no object, and I wanted a wheelhouse-style yacht, I'd consider very carefully the Regina range.

    Ken - My photos don't do the boat justice at all (used an SE camera phone!) - I can honestly say that the finish is much higher quality than that Regina. That wood looks pretty low rent to me (although I'm sure it's not!). Very plasticky and almost like formica! The doyley/shiny gold effect fittings in the table say it all!!!

    Looks nice externally though but not as seaworthy maybe?
    What do they sell for?

    I'll get proper pics up soon and it should be in the odd mag or two with professional pics in the next couple of months. We'll see what the journos think.

    Ugh! TK. Slabby topsides, perched up cockpit. All that wood work, bit like living inside a cigar box. Plus a Volvo engine to boot.

    If you want a deck saloon, get a MoBo, they do a much better job of it.

    Just for the record - I like it (then I would).......BUT.....
    As with any boat, there are things you love things you like and things you hate.
    I think the aft deck issue is valid but minor. Time will tell for the new owner. There may be ways around that.
    I assume the accommodation is all as good as the first pictures.
    For some reason, I have still got something against the pretense of size of the original Fisher 46 (along with the rest of their range).
    And the pilothouse of the newie seems pretty small to me still.
    For the record, we have:
    Pilothouse with full size galley, chart table, inside (wheel) steering, full electronics and seating for five (unless I'm sitting there!)
    Aft cab with large (poss king size) double and en suite heads with shower/bath (OK, you can't stretch out in it!)
    Forward below is saloon with seating either side.
    Forward again, is fwd heads and shower.
    Forward again, huge double
    Oh, and aft of the saloon (under the pilothouse) is a little double and passageway to the engine bay.
    A good 7ft headroom in most areas.
    Lots of teak and bronze.
    Too scarey to consider the costs of building things like that these days - even in the Far East.
