Remarks:

The Drascombe Coaster is a small cruising yacht/trailer sailer based on the Drascombe Longboat and Cruiser Longboat (which also featured a cabin). With over 300 built to date (and over 400 of the earlier Cruiser Longboat), she has proven an extremely popular and successful little sail boat. Easily trailed, launched, recovered and rigged and sailed single handed, the Drascombe Coaster is ideal for weekend use, and can in fact potentially accommodate four people overnight utilising a sprayhood and an additional cockpit tent (not included in the sale). With loose footed sails and flexible yawl rig, she’s equally suited to serious sailing or just drifting along in a gentle breeze! Sadly for sale as the owners are wish to purchase a motor cruiser.
