Broker's Comments

These 17 foot Crabbers are delightful boats and perfect for pottering with your family and friends whilst on holiday. Tow it home at the end of your hols.

This boat is now moored in Scotland

They have a good sailing performance and the lift keel is ideal for exploring hidden creeks - to check up on Ratty and Moley.

There is very little in the way of maintenance other than an occasional hull polish and some varnish work on the spars.

Ready to go.

In the unlikely event that you are a big Who fan, here is a unique opportunity to by Pete Townshend's old boat !
