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.



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.
