The Drascombe Lugger has established a unique place in small boat sailing. From small lakes and rivers to estuaries and coastal sailing and this Lugger ticks all the boxes. She is easily trailed, easily launched and recovered and sailed by a one person, whilst accommodating up to six people comfortably. Like all the Drascombe open boats, the Luggers spars stow easily within the length the hull and one person can quickly step the masts and rig the boat – usually within half an hour of arriving you can be on the water ready to go. The sails are loose-footed and the flexible rig allows for serious sailing as well as comfortable pottering in a light breeze.
The 6hp Tohatsu 4-stroke engine (never been used) nestles in a well at the stern of the boat, lifting out of the water when sailing or beaching. The internal cockpit cover is easily fitted afloat and keeps the rain out of the bilges if kept on mooring during the season.
All required standing & running rigging, mainsheet track & traveller. Stainless steel Mastband. 1 x 19 SS wire, talurit eye spliced Standing rigging Galvanised steel centreplate & kick up rudder. Stemhead, tiller head, three mooring cleats, one pair rowlock sockets & pair of aft mooring fairleads in bronze (or stainless steel as an extra cost option) Anodised aluminium mainsheet traveller track. Barton tracks & blocks. Other deck fittings are a combination of black nylon or stainless steel. Drain plug in aft locker.
This Lugger is on its second owner from new but has not been used by current owner. The boat, sails and trailer are in good condition but have been left without use since 2015. The woodwork could do with oiling and a bit of air in the trailer tyres but other than that she is good to go!
The Tohatsu 6hp 4-stroke was new in 2015 and has never been used.
