The Cornish Shrimper has become a legend among sailors worldwide. Easily sailed and trailered, the traditional gaff-rigged Shrimper is enjoyed by hundreds of enthusiasts for its startling performance and kind handling qualities. The classic design of the Shrimper has the best mix of offshore sailing and trailer sailing for performance, comfort and safety. Ease of launching makes her ideal for weekend sailing. With a large cockpit that easily accommodates four adults, and a spacious cabin with two or four berths, the Shrimper is ideal for racing, sailing, cruising under her powerful inboard, or just happily exploring shallow estuaries. The latest version of the Shrimper has been improved to give additional space both above and below deck. The cabin headroom has been increased. There is now a fixed site for the self-contained flushing toilet (a Porta-Potti) and a large opening hatch is sited over the head. The galley area, which contains the stove and fresh water, is on the starboard side of the mast support post. The stainless steel one-ring burner hob unit uses gas and is ideal for making hot drinks. The cockpit floor has been raised to provide self-draining while on a mooring from a central drain via a seacock. The cockpit coaming is approximately two inches higher than the earlier Shrimper, making it drier and more secure. A small aft deck has been incorporated which now carries the mainsheet track. The reliable 9 horsepower diesel inboard provides a steady 5.5 knots, and the engine can easily be accessed for routine maintenance. The inboard engine housing is now also fitted even when the outboard version is specified, thus allowing for additional storage space. The outboard version has a large outboard well to accommodate modern four-stroke outboard motors.
