The Cornish Crabber 22 is a natural progression for the Shrimper owner, who wants to continue all the enjoyment and charm of the classic Shrimper world with the added potential for sailing further in greater comfort and with less effort. “Dignity” has spent most of her life being sailed from Chichester harbour. She is safe and easy to move around with her wide decks. She can be sailed single handed and the self-draining cockpit helps keep your feet dry. Having been very well maintained and lightly used, this is a great opportunity for someone to buy with confidence a boat with good provenance and in excellent condition at a very competitive price compared to when new.
