The Sadler 32 yacht evolved from the hugely successful Contessa 32, also designed by David Sadler. The Contessa 32 was a real classic of its time, with elegant lines, low profile and superb heavy weather performance. However, in 1979 David Sadler designed the Sadler 32 to deal with the shortcomings of the Contessa 32, being limited accommodation through low headroom and narrow beam, sluggish light weather performance and rolling downwind. The result was the Sadler 32, which embodied several innovative features and represented an important "milestone" in cruising yacht design.
About 300 Sadler 32s were built over a ten year period from 1979 to 1989.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Comparisons with her older sister are inevitable but the Sadler 32 is a boat that can be sailed hard and will keep you safe in adverse conditions. She’s drier than a Contessa in a seaway and sails better dead downwind. She’s 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. She's a 'good honest' fast cruising yacht with pleasing lines & good performance.
