This listing contains some provisional information: details may change

We are delighted to list Sunrider, built 1982, commissioned 1984 and in good condition.
This Sadler 32 has been well cared for and is only in it's third ownership since new.

Specification is impressive, with many upgrades and equipment/overall condition is above average.
Watermota 30hp was installed in 2001, mounts, shaft and cutlass bearing renewed in 2017.
Galley upgraded with recent Techimpex cooker, new Frigoboat keel-cooled fridge and Eberspacher heater.
The original red grp hull was resprayed with Awlgrip in 2015.

Standing rig replaced 2010 and running rigging recently renewed, partly in Dyneema.
Fully battened main and genoa, both 2010 and new spinnaker in 2017.

Owner has already purchased his next yacht, hence price now reduced to £15,750 which is a very competitive level for this attractive and well-equipped Sadler 32 - reasonable offers will be considered.

Call Mike for more detail.

Owner Comments
We had decided on either a Sadler 32 or Sigma 33. Sunrider was the best boat available and after long term ownership we became her third owners. We are in touch with both the previous owners.
We have maintained/upgraded her (sails, rig, spray hood, fridge, AIS, Habitent Cockpit tent, engine mounts, shaft, cutlass bearing, adjustable genoa cars etc) to keep her in good order.
We have had a lot of fun in her along the east coast and extended stays in Holland. She sails very well, often overtaking more modern bigger boats and has brought us home safely and when other boats have been reluctant to head to sea.
I wouldn't hesitate in taking her on a trip tomorrow and we are only selling because we have bought a bigger boat - still a Sadler - a Starlight 35!
