Drascombe Lugger, 1969

  • #105 located in Columbia, South Carolina.

  • Length 18' 9"
  • Beam 6' 3"
  • Weight 748 pounds
  • Sail Area 132 sf
  • Made in England by Honnor Marine Ltd in 1969.

    I am third owner of this, lightly used, classic Lugger.

  • The original owner had her delivered to Grand Rapids, Michigan in June of 1970. Unfortunately, he was only able to sail her one time before health issues prevented him from sailing.
  • She was stored in a garage for 34 years until she was purchased in 2004 by the second owner who brought her to South Carolina where she was again stored inside.
  • According to the second owner, she was only sailed a "half-dozen" times prior to my purchasing her in February of 2013.
  • This Lugger has a royal blue GRP hull. The hull is in excellent condition.
  • The decks are duck egg blue and the gelcoat on the deck does show some stress cracks.
  • All of the wood on the boat is in good condition.
  • The sitka spruce spars, teak gunwales and pine floorboards are in good condition, as is the keel plank.
  • She has tan bark main and mizzen sails and the furling jib is red.
  • The sliding gunter rig and the 3 sails are in good condition.
  • She has 2 beautiful oars made by Estuary England and 3 oar locks so she can rowed or sculled. The Whale bilge pump works great.
  • The outboard has been with the boat since it was new. It is a 1970 Evinrude Yachtwin 4hp motor. The motor runs good, but could use a tune up.
  • The trailer is made by Sterling Trailcar. As you can see in the photo, the trailer was modified by the second owner to add guides. The guides do a great job of centering the boat on the trailer.
  • As you can see in the pictures, the left rear hatch was damaged when it flew out of the boat while trailering. It is easily repairable, but Churchouse Boats in England will make a replacement for about $375.
  • The boat comes with lots of original documentation, including a manual for the boat and the outboard.
  • Located in Columbia, South Carolina.
  • Asking $8900 or best offer.
