The Sadler 26’ hulls are GRP with a full GRP inner moulding, the space between these shells being filled with injected polyurethane foam, making the assembly both stiff and unsinkable. This is a Fin Keel version with the usual transom hung rudder. This Sadler 26 has been very well looked after, is amply equipped with Navigation equipment and a well equipped small galley, as a result, she is in a great sail away condition.

Sloop rigged with a Stack Pack Mainsail with Lazy Jacks for ease of handling during the hoists and drops. A Roller Furling Genoa with sheets led back to self tailing primary winches, allows for shorthanded sailing and for off the breeze leisure sailing, a telescopic spi-pole is onboard. The Mast and standing rigging were completely overhauled in 2010.

There is an inboard 12HP Herald Marine engine (based on a Mitsubishi K2C) with 45 litres of diesel storage, and in addition there is a 10HP 2010 Mercury outboard. The inboard was fully serviced in 2011.

The boat was completely re-wired in 2010. Navigation is looked after by a Furuno Radar and a Raymarine A50D Combo Chart Plotter which was fitted in 2011. Two maintenance free batteries keep the 12V kit alive and a Plastimo Bulkhead Compass keeps you on track for those idyllic anchorages where anchoring is made even easier with the Electric Windlass looking after the 7.5KG Bruce anchor, chain and warp.

Below decks, accommodation for 6 is made allowance for but as can be appreciated it would be a bit over crowded if you were to fill all 6 berths! In 2011 all the wood fittings and panels were fully refurbished and new cushions were fitted.

In the galley a 2 burner stove cooks the meals whilst a 12V Isotherm fridge keeps the drinks cold. Sadly no dish washer but a 316 Stainless Steel sink is there for the dreaded chore of washing up. A manual fresh water system supports the galley and fed from a 100 litre GRP water tank.

Bilges are looked after with two 12V Electric bilge pumps and in the event of power failure onboard the mandatory manual bilge pump is at your disposal. A Jabsco PAR Manual toilet is fitted with overboard discharge.

Hull and all appendages scraped, sanded down, sealed, primed and anti-fouled in early 2011.

Safety equipment includes 6 lifejackets, 4 harnesses, danbouy, lifering, flares and first aid kit.
