This listing contains some provisional information: details may change

Initial Broker notes - we have taken on a really interesting deep fin Sadler 25, interior finished to a high standard by an artificer RN, boat launched 1983.
A year later, diagnosed with alzheimer's disease he passed 'Crack On' to the present owner, who has owned the boat for the past 35 years!
Lightly used for South Coast and Channel cruising, this 25 has been raced occasionally.
Stored ashore for the past three years this 25 is cleaned up and ready for a new owner.
Fitted with a Yanmar 1GM10 in 2005 - good condition and professionally maintained.
Mainsail with slab reefing and stak-pak, several hank-on genoas (furler can be fitted) and a spinnaker complete with all gear.
Adequate electronics and nav lights for cruising.
Available for viewing ashore near Yeovil - now available at £4,900.
Call Mike for more information on this interesting Sadler 25.

Owner notes - The hull was resprayed with two-pack epoxy to a very high standard by Tim Clark’s Boatworks in Castletown, Portland in 2012. Several photos available.
Keel prepared with Hempells primer ready for anti-fouling. Hull below line water blue ready for anti-fouling. Top sides white.

Reason for selling - Because I’m nearly 70 and do all my sailing with a gang of friends in the Med, chartering!
