Sadler 34 - USD 20,000


Largest of the Sadlers, the 34 evolved from illustrious predecessors. Her ancestry can be traced directly back to the Contessa 32, also designed by David Sadler and she embodies all the qualities of the true classic offshore yacht.

Her sleek, purposeful profile, moderate beam, generous displacement and undistorted hull lines all point towards a powerful cruising yacht, one whose design is based on what the sea demands, rather than what fashion dictates.

The timeless elegance of her looks, her remarkable performance and her complete dependability has been the key to the enduring appeal of the Sadler 34. Easy, predictable handling and comfortable motion have made the Sadler 34 a firm favourite among family crews looking for a cruising yacht with that added sparkle and the ability to go further than the next marina.

These same qualities have also lead to her being used for a quite remarkable number of offshore passages. David Katz chose a Sadler 34 to retrace Columbus’ steps from Spain to the Caribbean in 1986, while in 1989 Tom de Ruiter returned from a four year 35,000 mile single-handed circumnavigation in a Sadler 34 modified only by the addition of a wind vane and some solar panels. There were several 34s entered in the tough 1988 Two-handed Transatlantic race, where one owner commented – "As the race progressed, so our confidence in the boat increased, as it did in her ability to continue making good ground to weather in a full gale. . . never did I have any doubts about the basic structural integrity and strength of the hull and deck."
