Brokers Comments:

This Sadler 32 benefits from a large number of upgrades & significant costly replacements over the past few years that in our opinion, make her potentially suitable for possibly longer distance cruising. With a recent new engine, standing & running rigging, recent Epoxy Hull Coating, new antifoul, Solar Panel and feathering prop to name a few, this great boat has clearly been cared for by knowledgable owners.

"Yachting Monthly" described the Sadler 32 as ".... a boat that can be sailed hard and will keep you safe in adverse conditions. Shes drier than a Contessa in a seaway and sails better dead downwind. Shes also a more rewarding boat to gently cruise in light airs and more comfortable in harbour or at anchor, with a family-orientated cabin layout and extra interior volume."

In our opinion, this Sadler 32 is an excellent & safe boat which is both fun to sail & comfortable to spend time on-board. She is ideal for family sailing around coastal waters whilst still being very capable of cruising further afield. Blue Fin has the advantage of having had many significant upgrades performed in the past few years & is ready to offer her new Owner many more happy years afloat. We have copy of a recent survey available to potential purchasers and she is currently ashore having had new anti-foul and anodes fitted. She is currently lying in Hythe, Southampton & viewings are available through Aspire Boat Sales.
