OFFERS IN EXCESS OF THE 3,500 GUIDE PRICE WILL BE CONSIDERED BY THE VENDOR
Originally designed as a replacement for the popular Contessa 26, the Sadler 25 is now a classic yacht in its own right. Attractive lines, good all-round performance and an improved interior make them very popular for weekend cruising or longer distance solo sailing. Unlike the later Sadler 26 they are of traditional single-skin construction, avoiding issues with core moisture and difficult repairs. 'Black Bess' has had a new Yanmar diesel engine fitted in 2017 and has a good inventory but now requires some cosmetic TLC and general pre-season maintenance. A survey report from July 2017 is available and she has been little used since, hence the reason for sale.
Viewing by appointment only through our Essex office (01621) 785600.
