Crabber 24 MkV Update

Crabber 24 mkv

The first Crabber 24 MkV is now ready to go afloat, just in time for Southampton Boat Show. The factory team have done an outstanding job to get the boat finished in time.

The Mk1 Cornish Crabber 24 was probably the most iconic of the Crabber range from the early 80’s. Built from plywood and eventually converted to full GRP construction she offered a great family cruising experience with a simple interior layout and good sized cockpit.

In the early 90’s the Crabber 24 Mk 3 changed tack dramatically with a move to a deeper fixed draft and long keel characteristics. Whilst the various versions of this type were lovely yachts in their own rights we feel that the original lift keel / shallow draft Crabber ethos has been lost at this size in the range. This new boat will bring the Crabber 24 up to date whilst retaining the traditional charm of the original.

Orders are now being taken for delivery in spring/summer 2018. If you are looking for a boat for next season then Southampton Boat Show is the perfect opportunity to see the range.
