1006 2008

"Gypsy" is our much loved boat, used for sailing in the Blackwater and nearby estuaries. She is a Mark 2 Shrimper in superb condition, and was on the Cornish Crabbers stand at the 2008 boat show. Never raced or rallied!! (We just never had the time...).

We are upgrading to a larger boat (with very mixed feelings!), hence Gypsy needs to find a new loving home. A new Shrimper to the same specification would be in excess of £33,000, and being in 'nearly new' condition, Gypsy represents a substantial saving....

We have used our Cornish Shrimper Klazina in the Helford River (where she is currently moored) and Falmouth Bay since 2011. We have now decided to upgrade to a Shrimper 21 from Cornish Crabbers.

The boat has been professionally maintained. The 2014 yard trailer was built by Tyrone Snell trailers (who are suppliers to Cornish Crabbersand) and is designed to piggy back onto the road trailer (also built by Tyrone Snell Trailers ) When the new yard trailer was built the road trailer was refurbished.

With her two trailers (total cost £4,500), almost brand new Mariner 6 hp outboard, new jib and other equipment Klazina offers significant savings on a new boat. The yard and road trailers facilitate both easy winter storage and launch flexibility.

We will be sorry to see Kalzina go as she has provided us with many hours of pleasurable sailing but look forward to taking delivery of her successor.
