Aberration has benefitted from the past twenty years of most careful ownership and maintenance by Crinan Boatyard in Argyll.
General condition is excellent throughout, with comfortable interior and a Beta 20hp 3-cylinder engine fitted (2007), with 3 batteries and Adverc battery management system.
Sails mainly by Owen are good, with fully battened main, several genoas and an asymmetric chute.
New standing rig fitted in 2016 with Furlex 200s and running rig replaced as required.
Nav instruments are comprehensive and include a Raymarine C97 chart plotter, AIS, navtex Weatherman and autopilot.
Hydro-vane self-steering is fitted and adequate safety equipment includes 4-man liferaft and gas detector.
Sadly the owner has had to proceed with selling this much loved Sadler 32, which the Boatyard owners are now dealing with.
Sale price asked is realistic in our view, for this rather special yacht and Mike will be pleased to talk prospective buyers though detail.
Aberration was passed on to us as the previous owner had to give up sailing due to illness. We have another boat and would like Aberration to go to someone who will have the time to sail her.
She is in good original condition with no significant wear or damage. Systems have been well maintained and are of a high standard with an extensive inventory.
