Cornish Crabber 24

The Cornish Crabber 24 takes the Cornish Crabber range well into the offshore cruising market. Her fixed 3’6” draught makes her less of a creak crawler than her little sisters but makes her a serious channel explorer. The gaff cutter sail plan of the Cornish Crabber 24 comes with an option to add a topsail which is outstanding on regatta days. Standard jib and staysail winches make her easily managed with headsail rollers as standard.

Below decks in the Cornish Crabber 24, you benefit from full standing headroom and the optional fold down forward bulkhead can make provision for up to 5 berths (2 doubles and a single). There is room for an oven and grill so long term cruising in comfort is a reality.

Built to order, with your choice of hull and deck colours, the Cornish Crabber 24 is the dream of many gaff sailors who want the looks of a wooden boat but without the worry of maintaining the paint & varnish work.
