Each one of these special boats has her own tale to tell. CORNUBIA has proven herself as a blue water cruiser, whose ventures near and far you can read about as a training vessel for sea cadets or much loved family sailing pilot cutter. Rebuilt by T Nielsen & Co under the supervision of pilot cutter aficionado Tony Winter she has received remarkable treatment for a remarkable vessel.

On deck she remains so true to the original yet below she achieves the character of vintage yacht without offending her work boat roots. MCA coded for commercial work, this has included filming and charters specialising in sailing for disabled children.
