About this Cornish Crabbers Pilot Cutter


A luxurious one-off version of the well known and characterful Cornish Crabber Pilot Cutter, built for their managing director, which epitomises modern traditional British boatbuilding at its very best, with great attention to detail. Beautifully fitted out with teak joinery, the layout below is comfortable and practical and whilst full use has been made of modern systems and equipment, retains a cosy traditional ambience. The cutter rig is particularly versatile and with all lines led aft to the cockpit, all sail handling can be done from the cockpit without the necessity of going forward. Carefully maintained from new, Aliesje is offered for sale ready to go for the forthcoming season.
