Aeroluff self furling jib spar

Cornish Crabbers have two new trading partners dedicated to improving our service to owners new & old…

Freeman Sails from Padstow have worked with our in house development team to produce optimised sail packages for both our new boats and replacement sail requirements.

Simon Freeman is a true Padstownian who has travelled the globe to learn his sail making trade. He has now returned to Padstow, and with the support of Cornish crabbers has set up a new sail loft on the Padstow harbour front. Cornish Crabbers have appointed him as sail maker to our new boats whilst acting as Agents for Cornwall & Solent from Rock & our Hamble Point Marina sails office.

If you are looking for new Shrimper or Crabber sails why not choose the best and support a true British new business.

Aero Luff Spars.

Our fabulous traditional gaff rigs come with their own small challenges. With one of them being the furling / reefing options available with flexible wire luffed headsails. Cornish Crabbers have discovered the all new ‘Aero Luff Spar’ system originally developed by Wayfarer cruising guru Ralph Roberts who also suffered with the same issues of effectively reducing sail on a soft luffed headsail. Now in production from our Rigging department in Cornwall the new system is standard on our Shrimper range. See our shop for details on upgrades and click here to register your interest in the soon to come crabber reefing options.
