The Sadler 29 is one of the unsinkable Sadlers, with twin GRP hull skins separated by closed cell foam buoyancy. These boats have an excellent reputation for handling and seaworthiness, and make good safe family cruisers with a turn of speed.
The design sold well, with nearly 400 built by Sadler Yachts between 1981 and 1988. A few more were built later in the 1990s, by Rival Bowman, who bought the moulds and rights to the design.
The Sadler 29 has an excellent reputation for handling and vice-free performance, and an early example was the first production boat in class in the 1982 Round Britain race. 'Yachting Monthly' reviewed the design and commented "....It would be hard to find an easier boat to sail, and she feels as though she could cope easily with bad weather".
This example is beautifully kept, well equipped and upgraded.
Act fast she will not be on the market long !
