Cornish Shrimper 19 Mk1 - Lazy Jack
One of the most popular go anywhere trailer sailers. 
Very versatile and affordable classic designed yacht.
We love trailer sailers for being one of the most affordable ways of cruising when and where you like to explore Britain's amazing coast line and trips over to Europe.
Shrimper MK 1

Cornish Shrimpers are very popular for a good reason,  with over 1100 of these built since 1979 they have stayed the test of time. There is an active owners association. There are also regular sailing regattas throughout the year. Great construction quality from Cornish Crabbers. They combine modern easy to care for construction materials. The boats are made with a rainbow selection of hull colours are available. Our one though is a very nice black hull. The Shrimper is a perfect pocket sized cruiser and has stand out good looks of the more traditional design.  The latter point vindicated by inclusion in Classic Boats list of Spirit of Tradition yachts. 

When you consider a new Shrimper can set you back as much as £35,000 a well cared for second hand boat like this one presents really excellent value.
