This is how Shrimper 19 was born, which later became the most popular model produced at the shipyard. Since then the company has built more than 3,000 boats, including more than 1,100 Shrimper 19 and more than 350 Crabber 24.
After a number of owner changes since 2013, 75% of the company is owned by Peter Thomas, who also acts as director of the shipyard.
The shipyard, like 40 years ago, is located in Rock Village, North Cornwall.
Cornish Crabber produces motor and sailing yachts of classic design in lengths from 10 to 35 feet. Sailing yachts have fiberglass hull, hafer and bermuda arms, wooden or aluminum rankout. The yard's range also includes dinghies and trailer motor boats of classic design.
Cornish Crabber yachts are an example of a reproduction of a traditional British yacht in a delicate and stylistic manner. They are not replicas, but modern interpretations with quality technical execution. Practically all models, except for the largest, can be transported by trailers. The Cornish Crabber's speed and seaworthiness are at default heights.
