The Cornish Crabber 26 is a well built, traditionally styled family cruiser with surprising space below deck and enjoyable well-mannered performance. A delight to the eye, these pretty boats attract attention wherever they go and have proved to be easy to sail with excellent windward ability and a sea kindly motion. The lifting keel and shoal draft is ideal for coastal cruising and exploring shallow waterways. 'Edenside' has an impressive inventory including diesel heating, electric windlass, holding tank, copper coat and Raymarine navigation package. She is still in her original ownership and has barely been used, looking in 'as new' condition below deck. Offered for sale at a competitive price she will require some minor cosmetic attention to her spars and her sails servicing however she represents a fantastic opportunity to buy a nearly new Crabber 26 for less than half the current retail price!
