Broker's Comments

The Sadler 29, according to her designer David Sadler, was the best Sadler he designed. It was also his last. He also designed the well respected Contessa 32.
She has a spacious comfortable interior. The galley is to port with a large quarter berth and chart table to starboard. There is ample seating around the cabin table. The heads is to port with a hanging locker opposite and a double berth in the forward cabin.
She is an easy to handle boat with impressive turns of speed under sail or power. Sadlers are renowned for being well built and have the added advantage of being unsinkable due to her double mouldings with close cell foam.
This Sadler is the bilge keel version so you can dry her out anywhere. Great for the kids with their buckets and spades or for a peaceful night on the hard instead of rocking about in an exposed anchorage.
For a well presented example please arrange a viewing.
