About this Sadler 29


The Sadler 29 was an immensely popular design with over 300 hulls being produced between 1980 and 1988. Some later yachts were produced under the Rival-Bowman banner in the 1990's. Designed as a safe family cruiser the design proved to be a capable and quick passage maker, every bit as capable as her larger sisters.

Miss Piggy is a much loved example of the Sadler 29 which has been in the current ownership since 1999, with only her second owner. She is being offered for-sale with a complete inventory that includes:

Beta Marine 20hp marine diesel engine (2017) with only 101 hrs

Clipper and Raytheon instruments

Fixed and handheld VHF’s


JRC radar

Quick electric windlass

Lying ashore, Miss Piggy would benefit from some minor cosmetic TLC before launching for the 2021 season. The Sadler 29 is renowned as a well mannered yacht which handles well and delivers rewarding performance under sail. Viewing is strictly by prior appointment in line with the latest government guidelines.
