19' Drascombe Lugger Daysailer Rental in Cork, Ireland
SAILING TRIPS All the above prices include skipper and hostess, fuel, and refreshments. If you have sailed before we let you sail the boat, we just do the navigating. If it is your first time sailing we show you how to steer the boat and work the winches. Usually after a day sailing you will be able to helm, trim the sails, tack and gybe. We guarantee no seasickness when sailing among the islands as the water is always sheltered. The Boat Drascombe Lugger The Drascombe Lugger is a safe family boat for sailing, motoring or rowing. Certified for 6 adults of average weight 75 KG. Perfect for running up on a beach as it draws only 10 inches of water with keel up and four feet when sailing. Length 18'9", Beam 6'3". If you have sailing experience you can hire our Drascombe Lugger which was built by Churchouse Boats in 2007. It is in as-new condition having been only lightly used since new. Comes with a road trailer and 5HP Honda 4 stroke Outboard Motor. If the weather is suitable you can sail to the larger islands of Sherkin (1 mile), Hare Island (2.5 miles), Cape Clear (7 miles) or Long Island (10 miles).

Our company was started in 2005 by Con and Mary Minihane, both locals to the area. After qualifying as a marine engineer, Con did his apprenticeship at the Baltimore Boatyard where vessels such as Conor O'Brien's Saoirse and the Ilen were built. Eventually he would take over the boatyard and served the Baltimore fishing fleet for more than 20 years. Mary, who handles the administrative side of the business, taught accounting at secondary school level before dedicating herself full time to Baltimore Yacht Charters. Their experience and knowledge of the area is unrivaled, and guarantees that you will get the most of your holiday.
