The Sadler 26 was designed by Martin Sadler as a development of the very successful Sadler 25 to have more headroom and more spacious accommodation Over 200 of these yachts were built between 1982 and 1992, having the same foam-filled interior moulding as the 29, to provide unsinkability and insulation. Being a good seagoing boat, this yacht has proved to be successful for family cruising and she performs well in handicap club racing.
The Sadler 26 is the perfect choice for yachtsmen who want their sailing to be simple and undemanding. The 26s perfect 'manners', total lack of nervousness and superb seakeeping qualities make her the natural successor to the title that the Sadler 25 held for so long, as the ultimate performance cruising yacht in her class.
This particular 26 is still the standard unsinkable version and was built under licence by Fortuna, S Africa - she is in excellent condition, with Yanmar inboard engine. Cosmetic re-vamp carried out this year, including new upholstery. SSR registered.
