Biography


She was built as a replica of the crab cutters traditional in Southern England.

Her hull is based on the original design of the boats fishing the English Channel and the Atlantic.

The Cornish Crabber is the smaller type of the well-known Falmouth Working Boat.

“Betty” is one of the first replicas, with special emphasis placed on traditional appearance and simple handling of the rig.
