Southerly 135

Our latest boat to be listed is a Southerly 135, now on passage from Gibraltar to South Devon with delivery crew from Halcyon Yachts. We expect them to make landfall in Torquay, where we can inspect the boat and review the yacht, prior to a general check over and then available for viewing.

New arrivals at Retreat Boatyard

Posted 4 February 2016

We have several yachts now arriving on our website and heading for Retreat Boatyard in the River Exe, being a Sadler 32 from Mylor again to be delivered by Halcyon Yachts. Also a very well equipped Startlight 39 which is heading up from Greece and will be with us during the Summer.

A particularly interesting yacht is one of the Heard 28 gaff cutters, which has been completely overhauled and much new equipment, which will also arrive at Retreat Boatyard, later in March of this year.

We are settling in to our new office in Torquay Harbourside, same level as Harbour Master and overlooking Brixham and Torquay Harbours.

We are moving forward!

    • New office on Beacon Quay – views across Torbay to Brixham and overlooking Torquay harbour;
    • New website – encompasses our recent brokerage development to include all yachts of all types;

Our new office facility is now open for business. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the wide range of yachts, from small family sailing boats for exploring local waters, to sophisticated yachts capable of ocean sailing and also race yachts suitable for our West Country waters.

Our passion is boats! 

Mike Lucas continues to be actively involved in the Torquay office and will enthusiastically discuss sales prospects – please look in for a chat sometime.

Suzie Lees is a trained yacht broker and runs the office admin. After 2½ years of working with Mike, she has already acquired considerable boat knowledge and will be able to take you through our steadily expanding range of yachts available.

Sadlers and Starlights

Posted 1 January 2015

Mike Lucas Yachting has moved office to Torquay harbourside (Unit 7, Beacon Quay, Torquay TQ1 2BG) and trading name is now Lucas Yachting, with new website. Brokerage now extended to include all yacht types but we still have the familiar Sadler and Starlight website, which can be accessed from our home page via the ‘Sadler & Starlight’ link.

Sadlers and Starlights on brokerage are listed on both websites, now expanded to additional yacht sale websites, so as to increase exposure for all our listed boats.

The existing Sadler and Starlight site has all the old favourite articles, details of equipment supplied, access to forum, and so on.

We are wondering if Starlight Owners (past and present) could help us? Mike has evolved comprehensive data and boat detail for Starlights over the past twenty-five years, some of which has been lost in our move. It would be most helpful if Starlight owners could send to us a brief email with boat build number, year of build, keel description (wing or fin) and engine type, with list of owners (past and present). Please email this info to

Keep in touch and good sailing.
