Broker's Comments

The smallest of the split-rig Drascombes, the Dabber is a popular and safe day sailer for all the family. Suprisingly roomy with plenty of storage she has foam buoyancy to ensure that she can't sink! She can also be rowed with two sets of rowlocks. This one is in very good condition and comes with a useful towable trailer for easy launch and recovery.
