Broker's Comments

This is a very nice example sensibly priced to sell and benefiting from a new engine at a cost of £5300 in 2003.
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.
Yachting Monthly review comments:
"It bears testimony to the Sadler’s sea-keeping qualities. She’s a cruiser/racer of yesteryear and, I would argue, is all the better for that. Easy to sail, responsive and maneuverable, she’s a great little family boat as well as a good yacht on which to learn how to sail. She does tends to heel quickly, but not so that the toerail is ever in the water – a feature which acts as a useful guide for a novice sailor because even in the lightest airs they will quickly get a good sense of being in ‘the groove’."

Regularly sailed and well maintained this example is ready to go to sea, and make the ideal starter Yacht.
