We recently paid a visit to British boat builder, Cornish Crabbers based in Rock where we were lucky enough to see the first build of their newest model, the Cornish Crabber 26. She is the latest addition to Cornish Crabbers range of traditional sailing yachts from 17 to 30 foot, all built by master craftsmen to order.
The 26 is described as a modern day family cruiser, featuring full standing headroom throughout, with shallow draft and centreboard. The boat is fitted with a full Barton inventory on board, which with the highly specified rigging will make for extremely easy handling and high performance in all conditions.
The first boat produced will make its way in July to her owner in Falmouth. The second 26 will be on display at this year's Southampton Boat Show, with the third heading to the La Rochelle show a few weeks later, definitely worth taking a look at if paying a visit to either show!
