Description: For the first time during my ownership, "Barnacle" is now SERIOUSLY for sale. ALL CASH OFFERS will be considered.

Congratulations! You are now looking at a listing for a Fisher 46, perhaps the finest motorsailer of her class in the world. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to do some basic research on these small ships. You will quickly learn how respected and highly regarded these full-keel, ketch rigged, pilothouse, blue-water, global cruisers are in the world-wide sailing community.

If you are a serious buyer send me an email and introduce yourself. I will be happy to honestly discuss Barnacles condition with you but I am not going to nit-pick and fault the boat in endless emails nor attempt a complete inventory.

I will be happy to give you a call. We can visit about the boat and you can get a feel of how I view her current needs while I address the many questions you are certain to have.

M/S BARNACLE is hull #007 of the original twelve Fisher 46s (some say 14) built by Berthron Boat Co. Ltd. UK. It is my belief that only nine of these vessels survive. (No, they didn't sink I think two burned and one fell derelict.) Splashed in 1977, "Barnacle" has had three owners. We have owned the boat for the past 17 years and have recently moved ashore on the Rio Dulce in Guatemala after living aboard for 12 years during which time we voyaged her as far south as Colombia.

"Barnacle" is for sale in "as is" condition in Guatemala. Depending on the needs and expectations of potential buyers "Barnacle" is in marginal sail away condition and could be enjoyed in the Bay Islands of Honduras, Belize, and Mexico's Riviera Maya with minimal refurbishment. A bit more attention would include both coasts of the USA as reasonable destinations.

If an around-the-worlds great capes voyage is the goal, then an expenditure including the purchase of new sails and rigging would be prudent but the boat is sound and whatever additional goodies added would be new.

Equipment: Research Rio Dulce, Guatemala, which is "Barnacle's" location, and you will discover that inexpensive quality boat work of all kinds is available and that the location is considered to be hurricane safe.

Almost everything on "Barnacle" is old and she has her original equipment. There is a five-year-old SSB radio and auto-helm; the RIB is in pretty good shape but has a slow leak; the Yamaha 15 hp 4-stroke runs good; 8k Northern Lights gen-set works: electric anchor winch works; Ray Marine C80 chart plotter works, radar doesn't.

I trust her Ford-Sabre 120 HP motor and transmission.

A large v-berth, two closets plus vanity with drawer and shelves, and private wet-head comprise "Barnacle's" aft cabin. A second wet-head is accessed from the saloon. There are two forward cabins. The port cabin has upper and lower bunks and a vanity/closet. The starboard cabin houses separate washer and dryer and a small Kubota diesel which turns a belt-driven alternator. There is an upper bunk and access to the bow chain locker. The wheel-house has a steering station, a navigation/work table with storage, and a large L-shaped bunk/seat.

Contact me and let's find a way for you to be the proud new owner of this recognized classic vessel.

I ANSWER ALL INQUIRES. If you have contacted me and received no answer, please try again.
