About Our factory has been producing sailing boats non-stop for over 40 years. In 1979 Cornish Crabbers hit the map with the Roger Dongray designed Shrimper 19 which is still in production today as arguably Europe’s favourite trailer sailer. Our factory is based just outside the picturesque village of Rock in North Cornwall. Many of our customers enjoy a visit to the factory to see their boat in build, often making a weekend of it. We employ around 25 people with a few of these being original craftsmen from the original business that started building racing dinghies all those years ago. Why not come and see for yourself….. you are always welcome to see what we do.
