An evolution of the much loved original Crabber design the Cornish Crabber 24 with her traditional lines and rig is a greatly admired design in any marina. With the retractable bowsprit enhancing the sail area considerably her performance in all weathers is admirable while with the sprit retracted berthing is also reasonable.
Built to order in late 1994 LOUISA was exhibited at the Earls Court London Boatshow in January 1995 before being commissioned for her then owner. During her first couple of season afloat the boat was the star of many articles and photo shoots for the yachting press having been fitted out to an exceptional standard with lots of then extras.
Just relaunched after being antifouled and polished LOUISA is in sail-away condition.

We purchased LOUISA in the spring of 2019, through Mark. Blessed with a summer of exceptional weather we were spoilt and enjoyed using LOUISA most weeks during the season. She proved herself to be safe and dependable, regardless of the weather conditions while being great fun to sail.

Our first foray into boat ownership she has whet our appetite for sailing.
