"Lady Pamela" is a very good example of the ever popular Sadler 26. The 26 was a natural progression from the 25 that had launched Martin Sadler as a builder and the world renowned Sadler Yachts Ltd. Built using techniques that were so innovative for the time the hull was classed and proven unsinkable and allowed 6 people to travel in comfort in a 26 foot yacht.
This particular model is a bilge keeler which can show most boats in her class a clean pair of heels. The added bonus of the bilge keels is the ability to dry out in some of our more remote harbours of our beautiful coastline.
Well maintained throughout her life, she has undergone regular upgrades. These include a recently rebuilt Volvo 2001 diesel engine, NEW standing rigging, NEW Garmin chart platter/Depth sounder, NEW Wind speed/indicator and a full upgrade of the 12/220V system including batteries, charger and sockets. Below decks is in good order with Brand New upholstery introduced in 2018 and interior varnish.
Many small boats are described as "Tardis" like, but this 26 footer really is.
She can sleep 6 persons with a bit of jigging to the furniture.
Double berth in forepeak, single to starboard, large single/double to port and a quarter berth aft.
Below has good headroom and has a modern feel thanks to the recently renovated woodwork and new fabric coverings to the upholstery.
There is a decent galley with a gas fuelled Flavel Vanessa oven with 2-burner hob and grill. Stainless steel sink with hand pumped fresh water and a top loading icebox.
Seating area to port with Vis a Vis style table that doubles as a chart table and converts to a double berth. Large settee/berth to starboard and opposite galley a sizeable pilot/quarter berth.
Forward of saloon and between the saloon bulkhead and the forepeak is the heads compartment with sea toilet. Opposite is a hanging locker.
12V lighting throughout and opening deck hatch forward. All new 240V sockets and wiring when in harbour. 12V cigarette style sockets replaced with USB style chargers. Original 12/240V Sadler panel. New Sterling smart charger and rotary isolator switch.
