Cornish Crabbers Bermudan Pilot Cutter 30 - 1995 - £64,950 
'Aliesje' is a one-off and represents a super opportunity for someone that appreciates just what they are looking at. 
Back in the mid 1990's, upon his purchase of the Cornish Crabbers business, the new Managing Director of the time (who is half Dutch) recognised that in the moth-balled Cornish Cutter 30 moulds he had an asset that had been significantly under-utilised and, as a priority, he immediately had the moulds refurbished. He felt that there was latent demand for traditionally styled boats, but didn't accept that they had to be heavy to work, slow to windward and tiresome to maintain; he argued that the use of modern materials and fittings, blended with traditional looks and fittings would make for a boat to be proud of; a boat that contrasted with the all pervasive 'All White Boats' and one that wouldn't be any more demanding to maintain. 
'Aliesje' was equipped with a Bermudan cutter rig (whilst retaining the bowsprit) on aluminium spars (cream enamelled as a nod to the traditionalist), wheel steering, a generously powered auxiliary engine and accommodation to suit a growing family. Modern deck hardware such as self-tailing winches, ball-race blocks and a self-tacking staysail were employed, while indulging in bronze hatches and winches to go with traditional portlights and the swept laid 10mm teak deck sheathing - she is a handsome boat. 
September 2023 – Ashore in a tent for two months to have all varnished brightwork stripped back to bare wood and freshly varnished professionally. Rudder removed and new lower bearing fitted. Underwater surfaces freshly antifouled and other works completed.

Sails & Rigging 

Bermudan cutter-rigged on cream coloured, enamelled aluminium alloy spars with all stainless steel standing rigging that was new in 2017. Varnished oregon pine, retractable bowsprit to reduce the berthed overall length. 
The majority of the running rigging was replaced in 2022 too and is handled by good quality deck hardware by either Harken or Lewmar, combining with Spinlock rope clutches and Lewmar self-tailing winches. 
The outer furling gear is by Plastimo and the inner for'stay is fitted with a Facnor furling system. 
A rod kicker is fitted to support the main boom when reefing. 
An aluminium tele-pole is carried within stanchion-mounted clamps to be able to bear out the headsails or a cruising chute. 
Fully-battened Tan coloured mainsail by Suffolk Sails (2018), with three reefs and low friction batten cars by Rutgerson, running on a low-friction track fitted to the aft face of the mast. The sail is judged to be in very good condition. 
Furling Tan coloured Yankee Jib by Suffolk Sails (2017); described as in very good order. 
Self-tacking Tan coloured Stays'l (2017) described as in very good order. 
Cruising chute in a snuffer (2005) - lightly used. 
Various earlier sails retained as 'spares'.
