2020 Drascombe Dabber

The Dabber is a stable boat that can be sailed, rowed or motored. Ideal for rivers, lakes and estuaries she is a compact day sailer. With plenty of stowage space and easy handling the Dabber makes a great little family boat.

She is easily trailed, easily launched and recovered and sailed by a one person, whilst accommodating up to four people comfortably.

Like all the Drascombe open boats, the Dabber’s spars stow easily within the length the hull 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.

A 2.5 or 3.5hp outboard is recommended depending upon your sailing area and the engine nestles in a well at the stern of the boat, lifting out of the water when sailing or beaching

Two types of cover are available to protect the boat. The internal cockpit cover is easily fitted afloat and keeps the rain out of the bilges. The other overall cover is ideal when laid up at the end of the season.
