THREE generations of one yachting dynasty will be taking their place at the PSP Southampton Boat Show.

The expertise of the Thomas family - father and son David and Peter Thomas and David Thomas junior, who is learning the ropes – was used by North Cornwall’s boat builders Cornish Crabbers.

The family has designed the Crabber 26, which will be promoted at the show.

David Thomas is a life-long resident of Southampton and respected as a yacht designer for the Hunter Sonata to the British Steel round the world yachts.
