A spokesman for Falmouth Coastguard said: "He was in the cold water for long enough that he needed to be checked over by paramedics, but he was okay."
Earlier today the National Coas****ch Institution at Gwennap Head spotted a broken down vessel that needed assistance.
Falmouth Coastguard said the fishing boat had no working radio but was luckily noticed by the volunteers at 10.10am.
The all weather lifeboat from Penlee went to the vessel's aid and towed it ashore.
