The 'Cornish Trader' was one of the first larger boats from Cornish Crabbers. It uses the same basic hull as the more common 'Pilot Cutter', but with slightly raised decks and bulwarks, and gaff ketch rig instead of gaff cutter, looks quite different. It also has significantly more interior space, headroom and stowage then the 'Pilot Cutter' versions. This very well looked after example was launched in 1981 and has been in the same ownership since 1991. She is for sale now only as age is catching up with the owners.

The first Cornish Crabber was the plywood Crabber 22, designed by Roger Dongray in the early 1970s, built by a company specialising in sailing dinghies called Westerly Boats at Rock in Cornwall - nothing whatsoever to do with the larger Westerly Marine building larger boats in Hampshire. The design proved popular, and the company soon changed it's name to Cornish Crabbers, and expanded the range with both smaller and larger boats, as well as changing from plywood to GRP hull construction. Almost all the boats built by Cornish Crabbers were designed by Roger Dongray.

The Cornish Trader was the largest of the range, and was introduced in 1978/79. The hull is heavily laid up in solid GRP with isopthalic gelcoats (clear gelcoat below the waterline) and with a balsa sandwich GRP deck. There are two steel T-frames internally spreading the load from the main mast tabernacle to the hull. Approximately 2.3 tons of steel ballast is encapsulated in resin around the forward keel and centreplate area. The galvanised steel centreplate is raised and lowered with a 20:1 drum winch operated from the cockpit.

The coachroof is in iroko and marine ply with laminated iroko deck beams. Both mast are varnished spruce, in galvanised steel tabernacles for lowering. She has a substantial timber bowsprit which retracts almost fully onto the foredeck.

The same hull was later used for the Pilot Cutter 30 introduced in 1985. Although the Trader and the Pilot Cutter versions share the same underwater hull, the Trader has a raised deckline with higher bulwarks, is gaff cutter ketch rigged instead of single masted cutter, and has wheel steering instead of a tiller. As a result the two designs look very different. The interior of the Trader is also substantially more spacious then the Cutter, with more headroom, and a lot more stowage.
