Cornish Crabber 26

The Crabber 26 provides a pretty, functional cruiser with wide side decks. She is instantly recognisable as one of the Crabber family - ideal for short handed sailing.

The 26' Gaff is light, spacious, and airy with a heads/shower compartment to port of the companion way and compact galley to starboard. Two settee berths flank the centreplate case which has folding table leaves. Headroom is a very comfortable 1.9 metres. The heads are generously proportioned and practical with plenty of room for climbing out of wet weather gear and space to hang it afterwards.

Her lifting keel allows her to sail where other boats of a simular size are unable to, allowing you to explore the many beautiful creeks on the south cornish coast.

The Crabber 26 is a joy to sail with good performance to satisfy any skipper.

Perfect for exploring coastal creeks and inlets, in a style that evokes the very best tradition of small boat sailing

The crabber was swift, stiff, well balanced, pleasantly responsive, remarkably smooth and superbly reassuring.
