A really tidy and well-equipped Sadler 26, Lucice is one of the last boats built by Sadler International.
She has been in capable hands and lightly used since new. Sails are recent and in excellent condition, the Volvo 2010 has low mileage and regularly maintained - there is even an Eberspacher heater for comfort out-of-season.
The deep fin keel provides for good windward performance and the renowned interior foam provides for insulation, buoyancy, warmth and prevents moisture, even in winter.
Canvas work and interior furnishings are in splendid condition.
New Raymarine i70s system pack in 2018 - cost £1,900 including installation.
Lucice owners are selling only because they have now proceeded with a new yacht and have requested that the asking price be reduced to £11,500, which is very competitive for this well equipped and superbly appointed Sadler 26.
Lucice is highly recommended - call Mike for more detail.
