Broker Remarks

The Cornish Trader is a 30" gaff rigged ketch, built on the same hull as Cornish Crabbers present pilot cutter 30. Only six Cornish Traders were made of this design, the main two differences being two cockpits onboard, each with their own wheel steering, and the advantage of having a mizzen mast.
The hull is built from GRP with bilge keels, and a centreboard. This boat also has wooden legs, and hence the underwater profile lends itself to river cruising and beaching.
The current owner has owned her since 2014 and has made some considerable improvements to her, please see the specification for relevant information on most of the upgrades made in 2014.
She is in great condition and offers a fantastic alternative to the modern yachting experience. The Cornish Crabbers Trader is an extremely comfortable yacht that holds those traditional values.
