Broker's Comments

This is a good example of these well renowned boats. The Sadler 34 was designed as an improvement of the already respectable Contessa 32. Like all Sadlers, the 34 has the characteristic unsinkable Sadler hull design and well balanced, performance sailing characteristics.

The Sadler 34 is a well proven sea boat, renowned for completing many tough passages all over the world (so much so the boat is a case study in Adlard Cole's 'Heavy Weather Sailing'). Furthermore, the 34's shallow draft is equally at home coastal cruising or creek hopping.

This boat has been well maintained by the current owner, with sails laundered annually, alongwith engine services and recent re-varnishing of the boat's interior woodwork. This boat was also treated with Coppercoat antifouling in 2014, thereby avoiding the need for labour intensive annual antifouling.

The boat is tidy throughout and in commission. The cockpit will comfortably seat six and the side decks and foredeck are comfortable for routine sailing tasks. The boat also comes with a number of valuable inventory items, including a recent stackpack and lazy jacks.

Down below, the headroom is good throughout and the accommodation contained in a sizeable double aft cabin, forward cabin and spacious saloon area, which also provides a another double berth. The galley is equally comfortable for preparing meals, in harbour and at sea. The galley was completely refurbished in 2008 with a new fridge, new sinks, new work surfaces and new cooker. The heads contains the sea toilet and shower.

When I visited the boat I was very impressed by its upkeep, presentation and ability to offer comfortable coastal and blue water cruising, with safety and good performance.
