The Cornish Shrimper 17 is an excellent starter boat for sailing newcomers and a fantastic day boat for enthusiasts.
With her easily handled high peaked gaff rig and lifting keel, she bears all the characteristics of the outstanding Cornish Crabber range.
The Shrimper 17 is a roomy day-boat, which handles superbly both under sail or power. A central, internally mounted engine well can accept up to 6hp and gives great maneuverability and drive in all conditions. She is in our opinion “the perfect trailer-sailer.”
The spacious self draining cockpit of the Shrimper 17 can be immediately transformed into a light spacious cabin with two berths and abundant stowage, by raising the fold-down spray-hood.
The Shrimper 17 can be easily launched or retrieved single-handed from her custom built road trailer and accommodates up to five for day sailing. A great option for those of you who would like the option to trail, sail and then stay onboard.
As with all our boats the Shrimper 17 can be moulded in your choice of colour and specified with your choice of extras for a truly unique boat, which will hold her value for the future.
