Back in 1946 boat builders J&G Forbes of Sandhaven in Scotland built a sturdy 53’ fishing vessel named Capella. She was taken south to work the fishing grounds off the Devon and Cornish coasts. Many years later she was converted to a SCUBA diving vessel but when the business fell on hard times she was purchased by a new owner in 1994 who fell in love with her and decided to spend the next few years and quite a few pennies restoring and converting her to a lovely live-aboard motor cruiser, now named McAlister.

It is always a pleasure to step on board a beautifully clean and well presented boat. That was my first reaction when I stepped aboard this beautiful Bavaria 330 Sport.

“The Cornish Shrimper 19 is the most popular model in the Cornish Crabbers range. She has a classic styling that appeals to sailors from any generation and a build quality that will match her reputation as the best British production Gaffer of all time. Cornish Crabbers have built over 1000 Cornish Shrimpers since 1979 with the original boats still sailing all over the world. The self draining cockpit in the Cornish Shrimper 19 is vast compared to other boats of her size and the companionway leads down to a classic 2 berth arrangement with space for a sea toilet if required” says Cornish Crabbers.

They designed and commissioned the building of 100 decked fishing boats with small aft wheel house, capable of collecting up to 6 tons of cockles. These vessels were made of mahogany planking on heavy steamed oak timbers by shipwrights at the Dauntless Boat Building Company at Canvey Island in Essex.
