Remarks:

The Dabber is small enough to fit in the average family garage, but still big on performance thanks to the flexibility of her sail plan. Ideal for shallow waters, she is also easy to row and to handle under power.

 

This Dabber is in good condition with all her brightwork recently re-varnished and is in ready to sail and tow condition.

 

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.
