Broker's Comments

The Cornish Shrimper has a great reputation as a rugged day boat, ideal for coastal cruising, pottering about in estuaries or even venturing across the channel.

In constant production for over thirty years & with an impressive build quality & timeless classic styling, they appeal to sailors from all generations.

This example comes complete with a braked, break-back trailer making her easy to tow to, launch & recover from your favourite destination and then store at home.

With blue hull, good quality tanned sails and a fully serviced outboard with 50 hours approx, this is a great package for fresh faced new sailors or gnarly old sea dogs.
