Drascombe Coaster

In 1979, Drascombe put a cuddy onto its highly successful 21ft yawl-rigged

Longboat daysailer to give her weekending accommodation. She proved

popular for her simplicity and economical price. The accommodation

is pretty basic, but there is space for two to camp out with rudimentary

cooking and chemical heads facilities. A cockpit tent can create two more

berths for family sailing. The loose-footed, gunter yawl rig is not very

effi cient but she is fun, if not fast, with a big cockpit. About 270 have been

built to date, by various yards, including the current Drascombe franchisee,

Churchouse Boats.
