Drascombe Lugger, 1971 sailboat for sale

  • Marble Falls, Texas. $5,500

    Length is 18.75 feet, beam is 6.25 feet, fiberglass construction, weight about 750 lb.

    Description

  • The boat has been in my family since the mid 1970s. I hate to part with it, but it is not getting used anymore and my kids have no interest in sailing. It’s time for someone else to adopt this lovely vessel.
  • This is an early model Lugger but does have the somewhat larger Mk-II sail configuration with the longer Gaff.
  • The main mast and mizzen mast are in good condition. They were epoxied and varnished about 15 years ago. A stainless mastband was added to the main mast. The gaff is in good condition though a warped (at least for the twenty years I have owned it). The gave jaws were updated to aluminum.
  • The boat has the classic tanbark sails in fair condition. There are two small rips in the main sail, about 1.5”, which could be fixed with sail tape. The stitching on the bottom of the jib has come loose. The mizzen sail seems to be good.
  • The floorboards have been epoxied. There is a small section that is missing.
  • The teak on the boat has been coated with Cetol. There are some spots on the rub rails that were damaged and filled with epoxy, which could be sanded to make it smooth.
  • The original oars are present. They have been stripped but not yet varnished or epoxied. The oar locks are also included.
  • The hull is in good condition. It was painted white about twenty-five years ago but the paint looks good. There are the remnants of antifoul on the bottom. It was stored on the water for a few years in the late 80’s. There are some spider cracks here and there topside, which I think is typical for an older fiberglass boat.
  • There is a cover from the Sailor’s Tailor about fifteen years old.
  • An Evinrude 1991 two-stroke 8 hp motor is included. It was serviced and running fine a few years ago. It should probably have a tune-up before operation again. A newish plastic gas tank is also provided.
  • The trailer was professionally serviced to be ready for a long haul. I will install new rims and tires as well. The lights were checked, and they work.
  • The main project that needs to be completed is to replace the missing hatch covers. You can see their location in the pictures. The molds for the covers are unfortunately no longer available per Honnor Marine Classics. My plan was to replace with some custom vinyl cushions with a solid back. It is also possible to have fiberglass replacements custom made, or to re-glass the entire area and cut a lower access like more modern Luggers. Since I have moved, I have not been able to coordinate any of this work myself and would rather the new owner come up with their own solution.
