Welcome to Drascombe Boats. We take great pride in producing a comprehensive range of traditionally styled day and small cruising boats, built with modern materials, offering practical boat ownership at its very best. With 50 years of building examples of our boats with their wooden spars and tan sails, they can be found in many creeks, harbours and lakes around the country and world wide.

Dabber

POA

The Dabber is the smallest boat in the Drascombe range. At 4.72 m (15’ 6”) in length,it is small enough to fit in the family garage but is still big on performance.

Longboat

POA

For those who require more room, the greater length and beam of the Drascombe Longboat provides an even roomier day boat than the timeless Lugger… ideal for exploring the coast, or more energetic sailing

Outboards

A quiet reliable outboard engine is a wonderful addition to your boat. It is not just the convenience of being able to push against the current, or simply to extend your cruiisng range - it add another dinension to the use of your boat. Fishing, picnics and greater accessiblity to creeks and rivers where sailing may not be an option. Even the smallest of the Drascombe range, the Dabber will benefit.

Wooden Parts

The wooden parts on all of our Drascombes are now made from Iroko, a hard wood which is incredibly versatile. We are proud that all of our woodwork is hand machined, and then hand crafted to get the correct fit, we pride ourselves on the finished products which come out of our workshop.
