The Trapper 300 was described as, 'A fast fun cruiser for less than £10000' in a recent (May 2009) review in Practical Boat Owner. Other extracts from the review, by David Harding, include: 'If you want a sporty and affordable second-hand 26-footer that also makes a great family cruiser, the Trapper 300 deserves some serious attention'; 'I have watched and photographed Trapper 300s racing and never seen them struggling. In fact they have always appeared to be well mannered even without large crews'; '..there's no denying that the Trapper 300 is a lot of fun to sail.'; 'She was light on the helm and delightfully responsive; one of all too few boats you want to sail for the pure fun of sailing.'; 'Despite her racy pedigree the Trapper appeals to people with no racing background who want a fast, inexpensive and well-mannered cruiser as well as to those who enjoy competitive sailing.'
There is an active owners association.
