Broker's Comments

Combining the best ideas from its predecessor, the Contessa 32, and with the addition of more innovative features, this Sadler 32 is a real pleasure to sail. Equally at home sailing in tough conditions as gently cruising in light airs, these boats have a real safe feel.

The accommodation is comfortable too. The extra beam and headroom give more space which is well laid out for family life onboard.

This vessel under it’s new owner has had lots of improvements carried out since 2005. This includes an engine rebuild, the fitting of a wind generator, solar panel, cabin heating and a pressurised hot and cold water system. The spray hood and dodgers have been replaced as have the curtains down below. The navigation equipment has also been improved with the addition of a chart plotter and an auto helm.

A good all rounder that is great as a comfortable family cruiser and swift passage maker, with the added benefit of being easy and safe to sail short or single handed.
