This listing contains some provisional information: details may change

Present owner purchased Tradewinds in 2015 and has completely refurbished the boat during the past three years. This elegant Sadler 29, unusually fitted with four portlights each side has been painstakingly restored to attractive condition and operational seaworthiness.
We understand that the comprehensive electronics all work well and include Garmin plotter, NASA nav instruments including wind, Raymarine ST2000 autopilot and Standard Horizon VHF.
Mainsail furling and genoa both work well, with all essential running and standing rigging now replaced.
Interior accommodation is comfortable with recent upholstery (2016), varnish work good, Carver heating, Neptune cooker and Isotherm refrigeration, plus additional lighting (12v and 240v) throughout the cabins and a new Gebo forehatch.
Powered by a brand new Beta 20hp engine (50 hrs) and installed with many new accessories, the new buyer will not be disappointed with this well-presented Sadler 29.
New on the market at an attractive guide price of £17,900, because owner is now moving up to a larger yacht.
