Cornish - Crabber 17'


OUR REF. † AYB00714

GENERAL Tess is a beautiful example of a Cornish Crabber 17’. She has had two owners from new, the second since 2004. Since 2004 we have commissioned her at Orford every June and retrieved her the end of October. She has been stored undercover every winter and maintained by us. She is in very nice condition with a nice shiny hull that has been machine polished every year, nicely varnished spars and woodwork again treated every year. Last winter the underside was sand-blasted due to excessive antifoul build-up. Two coats of antifoul primer and antifoul applied – so nice and smooth now! She is ready to sail.
