Broker's Comments

The Sadler 29 yacht is part of British yachting history. Since 1981 over 380 have been launched and this evergreen design has firmly established itself as one of the all-time favourites of her size.

Though conceived as a fast cruising yacht, like all Sadlers the 29 has a surprising turn of speed. However, she sacrifices none of her good manners, or easy handling qualities to achieve this. She has a deep, well protected cockpit and a rig which is exceptionally easy to manage for short-handed crews and is is a great little family boat as well as a good yacht on which to learn how to sail.

This example is the last 29 built by Sadler (as a deluxe version) and was their own demonstration boat. In long term ownership she has been fastidiously maintained and upgraded and is ready to go. An early viewing of her is recommended
