AN ICONIC BRAND – NOW SAFEGUARDED BY THE VERY MAN THAT STARTED IT ALL
David Skellon the original founder of Fairways Marine, the company that built the very first Fisher Yachts, has formed Fisher Yachts International to take control and safeguard the future of Fisher, a much loved and praised iconic yacht brand. David first started building Fisher Yachts in the late 1960’s, and for over a decade he steered the brand to becoming the international yachting icon we all know and love.
After David left the brand changed hands a few times and although it produced some first class boats under the direction of others, the people at the top didn’t have the same passion for the brand that David has.
David’s move away from the UK and from Fisher saw him become one of the Italian Ferretti Group’s top Distributors, gaining firsthand experience of the very highest level of quality production, design, styling and engineering excellence. David now plans to take this experience and in-depth knowledge to subtly improve the build quality and interior styling of the new Fishers, whilst sympathetically retaining the iconic David Freeman exterior styling that marks a Fisher and gives it such incredible sea-worthiness.
The new boats will be produced in partnership with Neil Marine, in Sri Lanka, at their incredible production facilities. Neil Marine are currently one of Asia’s largest yacht builders, producing yachts for top level European brands in the international market.
