Broker's Comments

Everyone loves a Sadler - and for good reason!

Legendary build quality, her foam sandwich hull construction and performance all lend to a really great all-round package.

This example has been heavily invested in, in every aspect, to make her a viable proposition for a now-cancelled solo Atlantic crossing, so she's enhanced in many, many ways and there are lots of expensive invoices to prove it!

We recommend taking a look in person, to appreciate what's on offer here!

These boat details are subject to contract.

How long have you owned the boat for?

Just under 2 years.

Why are you selling her?

I was preparing her and planning a solo Atlantic crossing, but I'm too busy with work, so have postponed until the future.

Where have you sailed her?

I haven't yet!
