Dragon Design, a joinery and cabinetry making company was established in 1984 at Tredegar, South Wales. Along with my team we have successfully honed our skills over 40 years in the design and manufacture of high quality joinery and cabinet work, all made to order and fitted for the client.
Along with this work I have over the past 30+ years held a passion for the Drascombe range of boats, sailing them extensively in a sail training environment as a member of staff at the Outward Bound Sea School, Aberdovey in the early 1970’s.
I combined these two interests when I started my holiday company, Dragon Drascombe Ltd, which has 8 charter Luggers based at Nidri in the South Ionian Sea. All these boats, along with the current Lugger in progress have been completely rebuilt by Dragon Design over the past 10 years. You will note from the Dragon Drascombe website the current condition of the boats, a testament to the quality of the joinery and rebuild.
The long journey from Wales to the Ionian each year, usually taking out another Lugger to join the fleet, meant I needed a good quality camper van. Putting the design and build skills to work once more, I produced my own top-of-the-range vehicle, now sold under the Dragon Kampers brand as the Med Trekker.
So, with my extensive joinery and cabinetry skills, I have set out to manufacture joinery solely for the Drascombe/Devon Lugger. Some parts are to the original specifications, and a number have been brought up to date with new materials and original design faults rectified. There are also new innovations of my own, developed for my Ionian charters over the years, like the swimming ladder, sun shade / Bimini and cockpit locker hatches, a very smart innovation.
The result is the catalogue of products you see on this website, all designed so that you can fit them yourself at a very reasonable cost.
Please be well aware that our products advertised on the website are not of the official ‘Drascombe’ brand fortunately, they are designed from a Drascombe owner’s experience, crafted and manufactured by Dragon Design. Choose to purchase direct from the expert and producer and not buy from Middle Men companies where the price is loaded to cover others’ profits.
