The Drascombe Coaster is a small cruising yacht/trailer sailer based on the Drascombe Longboat. With over 300 built to date, she has proven a popular and successful little sail boat, with a slightly reduced rig and the addition of a two berth cabin being the main differences to her predecessor. Easily trailed, launched, recovered and rigged and sailed single handed, the Drascombe Coaster is ideal for weekend use, and can in fact potentially accommodate four people overnight with the addition of a sprayhood and cockpit tent. With loose footed sails and her flexible yawl rig, she's equally suited to serious sailing and just drifting along in a gentle breeze!
