Where it all began - The Drascombe Lugger, originally designed by John Watkinson in 1965, the Lugger has become synonymous with the Drascombe name.

This versatile, trusty day boat has become a common sight in the rivers, creeks and harbours around the British Isles and indeed further afield.

The loose footed gunter sail and yawl configuration make the boat easy to rig, with a flexible sail plan for all conditions. The full rig provides and exhilarating sail, whilst the reduced rig of jib and mizzen leaves the cockpit clear and family friendly for pottering or fishing

Fun for one or able to accommodate up to 6 people she is the ideal family boat - sail, row or use the outboard - she will take you on your own Swallow and Amazon adventures

The spars stow within the boat and the swinging trailer makes for easy launch and recovery by one person.

The lifting centre plate and rudder offer shallow water sailing and also allow her to dry out on the beach or a mooring.
