Remarks:

Simple, rugged and seakindly, Drascombes epitomise everything that a traditional sailing dinghy should be! Whilst a little smaller than the more numerous Drascombe Lugger, the Drascombe Dabber, of which over 900 examples have been built since 1971, still carries a full yawl rig and is easily distinguished from her larger sister by her bowsprit and transom-hung rudder. This example (number 233) has been fully renovated and will be sold ready to tow and sail!
