Sailing BoatsSadlerModel 32United Kingdom
Designed by David Sadler, the Sadler 32 was a development by the same designer of the classic Contessa 32. Combining seaworthiness with ability to maintain good passage speed, she is a well-proven offshore cruiser with good all-round performance. Nearly 300 Sadler 32s have been built and many trans-Atlantic passages attributed to the class.
This boat is in excellent condition and has been carefully maintained and improved by the current owner. She benefits from a copper-coated hull and both a Raymarine ST2000 tiller pilot (with waterproof cover) and a Windpilot Pacific wind-vane self-steering system - an ideal set-up for both short or long-distance cruising and single-handed passage making.
