Broker Remarks

Cornish Shrimper 19 for sale.  LITTLE SHRIMP is a lovely early Mark I version. Pretty and charming as ever gaff rigged traditional cruiser, easily handled by a single person or ideally a couple. 6hp 4 stroke outboard in a well, giving easy maintenance and extra cockpit space. In this 2 berth version the space in the bows is utilised for storage, whilst the two berths are aft quarter berths. Surprisingly quick in most wind conditions and a very capable passage maker, as well as estuary hopper.

Very easily taken home for the winters thanks to the combi road/launching trailer arrangement. No need to get the road trailer wet when launching and so reducing trailer maintenance and potential problems.

Simple accommodation for 2 persons, with forward space to prepare food, and a chemical toilet
