Broker's Comments

The Sadler 32 is a boat that can be sailed hard and will keep you safe in adverse conditions. If you are looking for a solid boat with respectable performance, vice-free handling and reasonable accommodation, there are few boats that offer more at a similar price. The design was conceived by David Sadler in the late 1970s as a more modern interpretation of the hugely successful Contessa 32

This boat was built in 1982, commissioned 1984 and in good condition. She has been well cared for and is only in it's third ownership since new. and equipment/overall condition is above average.

She has had many upgrades including:- standing rig replaced 2010 and running rigging recently renewed, partly in Dyneema. Fully battened main and genoa, both new in 2010 and new spinnaker in 2017, Sea Panther 30hp engine was installed in 2001, mounts, shaft and cutlass bearing renewed in 2017, new Techimpex cooker, new Frigoboat keel-cooled fridge and Eberspacher heater and a respray with Awlgrip in 2015.

This Sadler 32 is ready to go for next season at a very reasonable price
