Broker's Comments

The Sadler 29 was a bigger sister to the popular 26, with which it shared the enviable quality of un-sinkability, courtesy of a double-skinned construction. Like the 26, she enjoys a deserved reputation as a steadfast and reliable sea-boat. Outside, she looks the part. I love the rise of the sheer and the fine bow entry. The cockpit is deep, with substantial coamings. Two large lockers swallow all the usual cruising gear, and the inflatable dinghy. Down below, the design works well. The head of the quarter-berth doubles as a seat for the dedicated forward-facing chart table. There is plenty of seating around the substantial timber saloon table. There is plenty of stowage under the bunks and cabin sole. She has a Volvo Penta engine, rather than the alternative Bukh. This particular example appears to be in good condition, and to have been looked after well.
