Broker's Comments

The Crabber 17 needs no introduction to the Gaff Rig fraternity. A well built seaworthy boat ideal for estuary cruising, Swallows and Amazons comes to mind.
This example has been in the same ownership for over a decade and has been well cared for.
She sits on her trailer awaiting her next excursion to explore where she has never explored before,
She is priced competitively so you could be her next skipper.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
