This is my beautiful 18 ft Drascombe Driver Cruiser. This is a one off design authorised by Drascombe themselves and the build commissioned in 1994 and built by J Whyte of Findhorn Scotland. She is built from the finest materials, and is a full West system epoxied shell. I have all the initial correspondence, build plans, specification, history and a file of photos from the build to sailing her. She has a Farymann single cylinder inboard diesel which has recently been inspected and overhauled by Rodley Boat Centre at a significant cost. The engineer remarked it is a sprightly little engine which appears to have done very little work. It does push her along at 5-6 knots easily and uses approx 1 litre and hour in fuel. Egeria has a large uncluttered 2 berth cabin with easy clean cushions. The centre plate has been removed in favour of triple keels so Egeria will float in only 1.5 ft, or 43 metres of water. She is traditionally rigged with a mizzen mast and benefits from excellent sails and a recent main mast and roller fuller foresail. Much money has been spent on her over the years and many receipts. She has had a recent full repaint in 2 pack Jotun paints, Iroko floorboards and a new leisure battery. Egeria sits on a galvanised Bramber road trailer which has had all the rollers replaced and fitted with 2 new galvanised skids. It is a Break Back Trailer so easily launched and recovered. Egeria has a depth and speed gauge and compass with Brass port holes. Also has a manual bilge pump, The cabin is surprisingly spacious and comfy. She handles rough seas extremely well and is very safe. We sailed her in a 12 to 15 knot wind in choppy seas and we were averaging about 4 to 5 knots with just the mizzen and the jib, thats without the main sail. She is very very stable and easy to handle. The engine fires up 1st time and runs excellent with that ‘Dum Dum’ sound. Why am i selling her? ——– I have had a motorbike accident and i am now unable to pull ropes or push and pull anything anymore. My wrist and hands are wrecked. Ready to tow away, (Easily towed by the average car) Excellent condition and is a true gem. A one off. Beautiful to look at. Could deliver at a cost, please ask first. Winner won’t be disappointed. Thanks for looking. Cash on collection or Bank Transfer only please, NO PAYPAL.
