Cornish Crabber 26

The all new Cornish Crabber 26 has been designed to compliment the current boats in the range whilst adding a few modern enhancements. We have optimised our design brief to achieve a well mannered family cruiser with shallow draft and full standing headroom throughout. The ‘Gaff Cutter’ rig of the Cornish Crabber 26 has proven to be the best option for the small family cruiser and our highly specified rigging makes for uncompromised ease of handling and great performance in all conditions. The interior layout of the Cornish Crabber 26 has 4 berths in twin and two singles format with a separate heads compartment and comprehensive galley area. She is powered by a 3 cylinder Yanmar 3YM20 diesel engine and her rig / deck gear will be to the same high quality as has become synonymous with the Cornish Crabber brand.

Available from late summer 2010 the Cornish Crabber 26 is a long awaited addition to the range which continues to lead the way in gaff rigged cruising yachts
The Cornish Crabber 26 hull lines, with a delicate combination of volume and form stability to achieve internal headroom, shallow draft and kindly sea keeping qualities. This is no mean feat and one that has been made possible by years of experience in this field by builder and designer.
