Seller Note

The Sadler 25 comes from David Sadler’s initial Contessa 26 design. He wanted to improve the design and the result of these endeavours was the Sadler 25, which emerged as a particularly attractive yacht with significant tumblehome, transom hung rudder (for accessibility and more effective steering down wind), a bold sheer (which maintained a dryer boat upwind) and increased beam, to give more power to windward and reduction of rolling. ‘Black Bess’ has had a new Yanmar diesel engine fitted in 2017 and has been little used since, hence the reason for sale. There is a July 2017 survey report available.
