Drascombe Coaster – “Samphire” Starting Auction Price £4,500
A fine example of the Drascombe Coaster, which has been looked after, she has been dry sailed (trailer sailed) and stored in barn over winters. I have enjoyed sailing Samphire; she is an excellent sea boat, very dry, and great for exploring shallow east coast creeks such as the Walton backwaters. She launches/recovers single-handed from her trailer quite simply and without fuss.
In the cuddy she sleeps two comfortably on new 4” foam mattresses, I am selling because we need more accommodation for the family and thus a larger boat.
New Coasters sell for £26,250, as she is not new, but considering her good condition I am asking at least £4,500 for a quick sale. You could get some sailing in this summer.
Ps. Will have to be collected by the buyer or we could come to an arrangement where I deliver, depending on distance.
Note: The Drascombe association is quite active and friendly and worth joining for, camaraderie, joining in their sailing meets and their excellent newsletter.
