What is the difference between a MkI and a MkII?
Not a great deal. The MkIIs, introduced in 1995, have a slightly higher cabin roof (good for those over 6ft tall), a cabin escape hatch for'ard and a smaller, but self draining, cockpit. There is no void under the duckboards to stow an inflatable.
Breakback or Combi trailer?
The breakback trailer (which hinges in the middle) can be easier for launching (depending on the steepness of the slipway) and is lighter overall. The combi, which has a launching trolley which sits on the road trailer, enables you to launch the boat without immersing the road trailer in salt water. The combi trailer has a higher centre of gravity when towing.
The Cornish Shrimper 19 is our most popular model with classic styling that appeals to sailors from any generation and a build quality that has led to her reputation as the best British production Gaffer of all time. We have built over 1100 Cornish Shrimpers since 1979 with the original boats still being sailed all over the world.
Unusually for a boat of this size the standard outboard engine version can be upgraded to take a Yanmar 9hp inboard Diesel. This sets her apart from the other trailer sailors on the market.
The self-draining cockpit is roomy compared to other boats of her size and the companionway leads down to either a classic 2 berth arrangement or modern 4 berth layout with space for a sea toilet if required.
A shallow 1’ 6” draught and lifting keel allow for sailing to tranquil coves & creeks taking the ground around a tide with ease. Launch and retrieval is done without difficulty from a single axle trailer with the pivoting bowsprit arrangement making mast lifting safe and easy.
Every boat is built to order with exterior colours and interior layout finished to your liking. Top quality deck fittings, sails and boom cover come as standard.
