Kune Kune is an outboard Shrimper 19 Outboard with a 4 berth interior. She has been owned by us since new and kept on a walk-ashore mooring. As part of the build, we arranged with Cornish Crabbers to have the inboard engine housing locker lowered so the hatch is at the level of the cockpit floor. This means we have a much larger than normal cockpit with a huge locker underneath. She has a blue hull, with copper-coat antifouling, off-white deck, lime wash interior, red vinyl covered cabin upholstery, and traditional tan sails. Cantilever bowsprit to assist with raising and lowering the mast. She has been laid up at home each winter and craned in and out each season. She comes with a very little used tilt-back road trailer. She is currently on the water and ready to sail away.

This is a standard "2+2" design. The “2” consists of a berth on each side with feet tucking under the quarter decks. The “+2” consists of cushions running forward into the bow. It is extremely tight having four sleeping on board in the cabin so we have a boom tent for when grandchildren are sleeping over. The cabin interior is a lime wash colour and the vinyl covered cabin upholstery is red.There is also a calor gas gimballed single burner stove.
Within the cabin, there is a fuse panel with switches for the navigation lights and echo sounder. There is also a fitted VHF Marine Transceiver IC-M411 (with masthead aerial).
GRP construction with internal bulkheads and deck mouldings. The antifouling is copper coat that was applied during the original build.
On deck, there is a solar panel which serves to keep the battery charged all year and which provides power for the radio, echo sounder and masthead lights.
The anchor is a 7kg plough and comes with 30m warp and 4m 8mm chain. Also included in the sail are numerous warps and fenders, mooring strop and buoy, boat hook – with additional whisker pole attachment on mast.
There is a canvas winter cover, supplied by Cornish Crabbers, that works a treat and keeps the boat dry and without any mildew forming.
The road trailer is a tilt-back version with flushing brake system and has a lighting board and spare wheel. We live just over a mile from the local yacht club, which has a crane which we use to launch and recover Kune Kune, so this is a low mileage trailer that has never been in the water.
The outboard is a Honda Marina 6hp, supplied by Cornish Crabbers and which works well with this sized boat. Whilst it can be left in the engine well, and we do this whilst away on trips, when on our home berth we always remove it. In theory, it can be stored in the stern locker, which is a real fiddle to do. When Kune Kune was being built,we arranged with Cornish Crabbers to have the inboard engine housing locker lowered so the hatch is at the level of the cockpit floor. This means we have a much larger than normal cockpit with a huge locker underneath. When not in use, we have a handy-billy and whip the outboard out of its well and leave it on the cockpit floor, secured to various strong points and hidden under a cover.
There is a 2 gallon remote fuel tank.
Part of the Shrimper’s attraction is her gaff sloop rig. She has a high-peaked main and a good sized jib giving her a working sail area of 194 sq ft (18 sq m). The sails and boom cover are the traditional tan colour and all the spars are wooden. The bowsprit lifts to assist with the raising and lowering of the mast. Also supplied are some Pottinger boards which help enormously when laying the spars on top of the mast when travelling.
