Cornish Crabber 26

Sail away for £114,950.00

The Crabber 26 is a stable, well-mannered family cruiser with generous accommodation below deck and an uncompromised sailing performance unexpected from a classic styled gaffer.

The ‘Gaff Cutter’ rig and shallow 2’ 6”draught of the Cornish Crabber 26 has proven to be the best combination for the small family cruiser and our highly specified rigging makes for ease of handling and great performance in all conditions.

The interior layout includes 4 berths comprising of a large forward cabin containing a good sized double berth and two generous settee berths in the saloon. The galley area is well equipped with sink, full oven / grill and lots of storage space for everything you need for a well fed cruise. The separate heads compartment has a shower, sea toilet and hanging locker.  Unusually for a boat this size, there is full standing headroom throughout the boat.

She is powered by a 3 cylinder Yanmar 3YM20 diesel engine driving 3 bladed prop behind the shallow draft keel. Her modern gaff rig is supported by an ingenious system of aft mounted spreaders and low stretch rigging making her the simplest performance gaffer ever built. Deck gear is to the same high quality as has become synonymous with the Cornish Crabber brand.
