A new beginning for Cornish Crabbers

A team led by Ben Walker of Blue Lagoon Marine has acquired the Cornish Crabbers brand, its Intellectual Property and the moulds for on-going production. They have been acquired from the liquidators of Cornish Crabbers LLP, which entered voluntary liquidation some months ago.

“We cannot let this classic brand just disappear,“ said Ben Walker. “It has been quite complicated and we have had the added complication of customers’ boats midway through production to deal with.“

Production will remain in Cornwall under close supervision of the new Cornish Crabbers Ltd, with sales from Blue Lagoon Marine in Poole, Dorset. A new website is being constructed covering the Cornish Crabber line up: Shrimper 17, 19 , 21 and Crabber 24 , 26 and Pilot 30. Although the team have acquired the brand Mystery, primarily 35 and 30 models, a new suitor will be found to continue sales and production of these two boats as they are seen as “somewhat out of sync with the classic and traditional Cornish Crabber”.
