posted a review on SADLER 29 SE
Solid boat, designed to be unsinkable, very forgiving. Great boat for a couple to sail. Bit heavy due to the foam, but this made it a good boat when ploughing through a rough sea.

All about Sadler brand


David Sadler designed the first Contessa in 1969; Contessa 26, followed by the larger Contessa 32, in keeping with renowned Folkboats. He founded a small shipbuilding company with his son, Martin, in 1974. Sadler 25 was the first boat to leave their production line and enjoyed great success as a club boat.


Sadler 32 emerged in late 1979 and still holds the title of the shipyard's pièce de résistance today, responsible for the company's success and reputation.  Just over 300 Sadler 32 boats were built during its 10-year production.


This modern boat was designed to achieve favourable ratings in relation to IOR rules. It features tapered lines while also boasting a high freeboard and inverted beam, which provide enhanced standards of liveability for a boat of this size, while the slender aft lines ensure excellent performance on the water. Sadler: the unsinkable racing cruiser!

The moulds were sold after production came to end, which resulted in a number of hulls being produced outside of the shipyard. The shipyard took on the task of building unsinkable boats by injecting polyurethane foam behind the counter-moulding. Sadler 29 and especially Sadler 26 gained their reputation by managing to reach port despite being filled with water. The shipyard fought through severe financial difficulties to produce the Starlight 34 and 39 before succumbing to them in the mid-90s.


The fact remains that the Sadler shipyard has produced boats with legendary qualities over the years.
