Owner notes
We have enjoyed Mikador since new, having owned a Sadler 25 before. Originally based in the Solent we have enjoyed sailing the Solent area and trips to the West Country, Channel Islands and France. Moving to Torquay 9 years ago the boat is now more accessible than ever, but sadly for various reasons we have used her less and less. We have now reached a point in our lives where we have decided to call it a day. We will be very sad to see her go, but know in our heart of hearts it is the right thing to do. Hopefully the new owners will enjoy her as much as we have.
