About this Sadler 32


Developed from his earlier Contessa 32 design, David Sadler designed the Sadler 32 to offer improved accommodation and better light weather performance. The Sadler 32 went on to be one of the best classic production yachts of all time and is an exceptional and safe sea boat. 'Niobe' is the shallow draft fin keel version and has had a number of upgrades over recent years, including new engine in 2010, Coppercoated in 2019 and simulated teak side decks in 2015. She is priced to reflect the need for some further improvements (e.g. rigging, electronics) to bring her up to date.
