Broker's Comments

Owner by the same fastidious owner since new, this Sadler 26 has a smooth and efficient hull shape, combined with a well proportioned rig, The Sadler 26 is very easy to sail single handed – an important consideration for both coastal family sailing and long distance passage-making. The transom-mounted rudder gives her superb manoeuvrability under sail and power, while the full length skeg affords additional protection to the rudder and enhances her directional stability.
Ideal for Coastal hopping or is perfectly capable of long passages, the Sadler 26’s two-module construction and built-in foam buoyancy make her one of the very few unsinkable cruising yachts ever designed . . . a reassuring feature.
The twin foam filled moulded construction was tested by a Yachting magazine, with all sea cocks opened and flooded to sea level she was successfully sailed home.
A special boat ideal for someone who loves sailing either as an old hand or just starting out.
