The Sadler 26 needs little introduction. These capable family cruisers have a well deserved reputation for seakindly performance combined with a comfortable layout below. They are equally at home cruising offshore as they are pottering about creeks and estuariesand the double skinned hull makes them warm, dry and unsinkable. No wonder they continue to be as popular as ever. This good example has been well cared for and is presented for sale in nice condition.
