The Drascombe Lugger remains a very popular open day sailer/cruising/adventure boat being stable and safe, but roomy enough for the whole family.

The first Drascombe built (with over 2000 built between the late 1960s and 2000, and since superseded and built as the Devon Lugger). Larger than the Drascombe Dabber, and smaller than the Gig and Longboat, this traditionally styled ‘Swallows and Amazons’ day sailer can accommodate up to 6 people and is ideal for for sea, lochs or lakes. One Lugger famously even sailed from England to Australia in 1969-1970 – quite possibly the longest journey ever undertaken in a small open sailing boat at that time!

This Drascombe Lugger is being sold in in good condition, complete with a galvanised, single axle road trailer and is ready to tow and sail!
