The Sadler 29 was an immensely popular design with over 300 hulls being produced between 1980 and 1988. Some later yachts were produced under the Rival-Bowman banner in the 1990's. Designed as a safe family cruiser the design proved to be a capable and quick passage maker, every bit as capable as her larger sisters.
TAMI is a much loved example of the Sadler 29 which has been in the current ownership since 2000, with only her third owner. With her owner now swallowing the anchor and retiring from sailing she is offered for sale with a complete sail away inventory which includes:

Lying ashore in a winterised condition TAMI would benefit from some minor cosmetic TLC before launching for the 2021 season. The Sadler 29 is renowned as a well mannered yacht which handles well and delivers rewarding performance under sail. Viewing is strictly by prior appointment in line with the latest government guidelines.
