This is a smallcruising yacht based on the hull of the Drascombe Longboat. With a slightly reduced rig and the additional cabin, she will comfortably sleep two people for a long weekend or more.
The cabin gives you two full-length berths, along with toilet facility and plenty of storage space. With a sprayhood and tent, another two berths can be provided in the cockpit.
The centreplate is set in an integral trunk and is operated by winch from the cockpit. The outboard sits in a well and can be lifted clear of the water when not in use.
A 5 or 6hp engine is recommended.
She is easily trailed, easily launched and recovered and sailed by a one person, whilst accommodating up to 5 people for sailing.
The Coasters spars stow easily within the length the hull using a tabernacle and support crutch 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.
Cooking and toilet facilities extend her cruising capabilities whilst still retaining ample storage space. This versatile boat makes a great long weekender for a family of up to four.
