Broker's Comments

The Sadler 34 was the largest boat designed by David Sadler. She has a foam filled hull and the owners state that she is unsinkable. This is why the owner chose her to take part in the transatlantic ARC race, which she completed successfully.
She is an easy boat to sail and handle with a good deep cockpit offering extra safety for family cruising. This is the shallow draft version enabling her to sail or moor in restricted waterways.
She has seven berths in 3 cabins. The forward cabin has a large double berth. The heads are to port with a hanging locker opposite and in the main saloon there is ample room around the cabin table for all the crew. The dinette area converts to a double berth with a pilot berth above. There is another settee berth opposite and a 3/4 berth aft. The chart table is a good size and the well equipped galley is opposite.
The boat has been out of the water for over 2 years and needs some TLC. The teak decks need attention, the portside toe rail needs repair and there is a small scratch on the hull which doesn't appear to be structural. Internally some of the woodwork requires attention but she is priced competitively.

These boat details are subject to contract.
