The Fisher Owners Association welcomes all of our members and sailing friends from around the world to this website
The FOA exists to give you help on the many aspects of Fisher ownership from buying (and even selling your Fisher), to understanding maintenance and boat handling issues unique to Fishers, and the opportunity to enjoy a varied events calendar.
The forum, archive and supplier discount scheme can help you make big savings, not only on your annual maintenance budget but also those bigger projects thereby justifying the cost of your annual membership fee (£25 full membership £15 Associate Membership) many times over. So please use this site and benefit from the knowledge it provides.
The FOA really is both a great sailing and social entity for those who enjoy the company of people who truly love and take great pride in owning the legendary classical Fisher Motor Sailer.
If you are not already a member then please consider joining and get the best from your Fisher and your time afloat.
The FOA Local Regional Organisation
Our regional Commodores facilitate the creation of the local programme of rallies and events which are suggested by the members and are therefore well supported. They can take us not only to local harbours but also across the Channel, North or Celtic Sea or maybe just a bit further around the UK coast than you would normally venture on your own. The choice is yours, it is your association.
Sailing in company can give great comfort to either the new or less experienced members especially e.g. if it is your first Channel, North or Celtic Sea crossing.
The FOA also has local onshore social events where members can meet and exchange their sailing news, recent sailing conquests, and of course those candid photographs - just when you thought you had got away with it!
