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 still carries a full yawl rig and is easily distinguished by her bowsprit and transom-hung rudder. Produced from 1971, over 900 Dabbers have been built to date. This example is understood to be in very good condition throughout with good sails, outboard motor and trailer, and is ready to sail and tow! Lying Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland.
