Broker's Comments

This Sadler 34SE has been in the same ownership for 16 years and has only had 3 owners from new. She has been regularly upgraded over the years and benefits from a new 29HP engine in 2009, a full suite of Sails, Rigging replaced in 2017 and a comprehensive fully integrated Navigation system.
She is in great condition throughout with excellent and comfortable accommodation below, and if you are looking for something that is ready to go with little or no investment this is the ideal Yacht, Safe (unsinkable hull construction) and Capable.

The Sadler 34 was designed in 1983 by Martin Sadler, as a bigger replacement for the Sadler 32, which was a 1979 design by David Sadler, in turn intended to improve on his earlier Contessa 32 design. With this lineage, the Sadler 34 is inevitably a fast, seaworthy yacht, with vice-free handling. The hulls are filled with rigid polyurethane foam between an inner and outer moulding, rendering the hulls unsinkable.
'Yachting Monthly' boat-tested the Sadler 34 design in 1984 (in a Force 7-8) and commented "....We raced at 8 knots or so on a broad reach. With the wind hovering in the low force 7’s, she stormed along in fine style, with an easy pressure and good response on the helm" and "...when the wind rose to the mid-8s, we rolled the jib to No 4 size before coming on the wind .... she was now consistently light and perfectly balanced with a delightful feel" and "..... her motion through the water put one in mind of larger yachts". It may be of significance that the YM editor who reviewed the design subsequently bought one himself!
