Cornish Crabber 32 NEW for 2018

SAIL AWAY FOR £139,950

Cornish Crabbers have optimized every bit of the 32 feet for family or ‘twin couple’ cruising – standing headroom……..

Below deck features:

  • Privacy for sleeping with double cabins fore and aft.
  • A central salon area provides 2 bench settees perfect for making up extra single berths and an optional extra child berth which provides the perfect cuddy hole for one of the children.
  • Well appointed galley designed to make hosting, even a larger crew, pleasurable. The drop leaf table over the well hidden centre plate case provides ample room for everyone to sit in comfort.
  • Nav station to the starboard side provides space for the crew’s navigator to plan the route ahead.
  • Separate heads compartment with loo, sink and shower gives access to a spacious wet locker which can also be top-loaded from the cockpit locker hatch providing valuable stowage space for essential gear.
  • The ingenious cast iron ballast keel configuration also houses the structure for the lifting keel mechanism. A sturdy skeg rudder will make for safe, shallow draught exploring and peaceful shallow water berthing.

The gaff rigged Cornish Crabber 32’ utilises the aft set spreader design developed for the Crabber 26 providing the traditional looks and convenience of the gaff mailsail without the need for running backstays. With all the controls led aft this really is a very functional short-handed cruising yacht.

Long keel sailing characteristics make for comfortable sailing but if overdone can compromise maneuverability in close quarter situations. The hull lines on this 32’er are designed to reduce the forefoot and skeg areas to accommodate this maneuverability requirement.

The new 32’s are the continuation of the next generation of Cornish Crabber sailing yachts. You will see from the hull lines that performance, stability and manoeuvrability are high on the design brief. David Thomas Yachts Limited has combined over 45 years of experience to maximise all these requirements without compromise.

Whilst we have maintained the traditional look of chined upper sections we have made the underwater profile smooth to maximise performance and ease construction. The modern underwater will benefit both the Crabber & Cutter performance on all points of sailing.

Cornish Crabbers are producing the optimum combination of classic looks with modern performance with a construction finish to be proud of for generations to come.
