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 owners have obviously spent a lot of time and effort to keep her in top condition, not to mention the money they have spent on all the recent improvements.

“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.
Call it a "sea change", a "lifestyle change", a "mid-life crisis" or "whatever floats your boat"! This opportunity could be all or any of those.

Just after the end of World War II the White Fish Authority were keen to re-start the cockle fishing industry. 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.

Boatshed Plymouth is pleased to have listed a Wharram Tiki 26 catamaran at an asking price of £6,950. The Tiki 26 was designed for those who want to do more serious coastal cruising. She can be trailed and easily beached (to step off in ankle-deep water); sleeps two in the hulls, leaving room for a small galley and chart table but accommodation can be increased with a deck tent, giving space for double bunk. Her ocean-going abilities have since been proven in various ocean crossings.
