New Instructions – Sadler 32 for sale

New Instructions – Sadler 32 for sale

Monday, 15 October 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Sadler 32. The Sadler 32 evolved from the hugely successful Contessa 32, also designed by David Sadler. The Contessa 32 was a real classic of its time, with elegant lines, low profile and superb heavy weather performance. However, in 1979 David Sadler designed the Sadler 32 to deal with the shortcomings of the Contessa 32, being limited accommodation through low headroom and narrow beam, sluggish light weather performance and rolling downwind. The result was the Sadler 32, which embodied several innovative features and represented an important "milestone" in cruising yacht design. About 300 Sadler 32s were built over a ten year period from 1979 to 1989. The boat proved enormously popular and is one of the best cruiser/racers still available today. This example was one of the last to be built by Sadlers and has had just one owner from new. She is well presented and has been well maintained Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker

New Instructions – Jeanneau Arcadia for sale

New Instructions – Jeanneau Arcadia for sale

Sunday, 14 October 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Jeanneau Arcadia. The design does not really date at all and down below the open plan layout is full of plenty of wood. The aft cabin and separate heads to starboard ensure good space for family or friends. There are folding doors to shut off the forecabin so its not completely open plan. In summary, overall a good design with no surprises. And I suspect she has quite a decent turn of speed as well. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

Jo Bell is perfect for the role because she’s a liveaboard narrowboater, and a very active poet. The former archaeologist is now the Director of National Poetry Day. She writes and performs poems, manages projects, runs workshops, writes articles, edits publications and much more.
