The light, elegant Longboat has an easily driven, 21'9" hull. The Lapstrake construction, a feature of all Drascombe boats, add rigidity too the hull-as well as good looks.
Fully-rigged, there's 172 sq. ft. of sail to drive the Longboat through the water. Her 6 hp Suzuki outboard will do the job when the wind drops - or you can choose for the three rowing positions.
The Longboat is roomy and stable enough for fishing expeditions and with a shallow draft, kickup
rudder and metal-reinforced stem, she'll take you exploring coves and backwaters with ease.
This Longboat is in great shape and comes with everything you'll need for your next adventure.
Sails & Rigging
As a family boat, the Longboat carries a Gunter Yawl rig with sail area of 169 sq. ft. This handy rig, beloved of fishermen, leaves an uncluttered cockpit when the boomless sails are furled to
Main Sail stows around mast
The lapstrake hull adds strength and character to rakish lines - and achieves minor miracles in keeping down spray! Foredeck, side benches and afterdeck are cleverly moulded in one single unit - as are centre-plate and rudder trunks, too, for watertightness and strength. Teak trim
complements the fiberglass moulding for minimum maintenance.
Stowage & Equipment
Ample stowage is provided under side benches and afterdecks - and the latter can be securely padlocked. The rudder has a folding tiller and lifts straight out for beaching. Another practical feature is the teak motor mounting which allows the engine to be carried in a protected position, ready for rapid use, but tilted to bring the propeller clear when sailing. Positive
buoyancy makes the open Longboat unsinkable.
