Remarks:

Described as simple, rugged and seakindly, Drascombes epitomise everything that a traditional sailing dinghy should be! And with over 5000 Drascombes built in total since the first Lugger was launched in 1966, they remain as popular today as ever. The Drascombe Dabber is a little smaller than the more numerous Drascombe Lugger, whilst still carrying a full yawl rig on main and mizzen, and she is easily distinguished from her larger sister by her bowsprit and transom-hung rudder. Produced from 1971, over 900 Dabbers have been built to date.

This Drascombe Dabber is ready to tow and sail!
