Broker's Comments

The Sadler 29’s are built with twin GRP hull skins separated by closed cell foam buoyancy. They have an excellent reputation for handling and seaworthiness, and make good safe family cruisers with a turn of speed.
This one has had a number of important upgrades including new standing rigging, new upholstery and new self-tailing sheet winches. The mast was rewired, whilst down for the new standing rigging, and had new navigation steaming and deck lights fitted plus a new VHF aerial and windex to fully update it.
In 2011 the engine was rebuilt and has completed no more than 100 hour since; it was last serviced in Autumn 2016.
The sails have been valeted.
