1986 - Designed by David Sadler and built by Sadler Yachts in Poole, the bilge keeled Sadler 26 has one of the most remarkable pedigrees of any yacht of her size. A good turn of speed and 'unsinkable' foam-filled twin-skin moulding construction. She has a high ballast ratio for stiffness and upwind power, an efficient, easily handled rig and a roomy, deep cockpit with high coamings. Six-berths, galley with oven/grill/hob, fridge and sink. Extensive navigational gear. Well maintained and constantly updated by the current owner, she has a long list of new components including the 16HP Beta diesel inboard (2007). November 2010 survey.
