Broker Remarks

1987 Sadler 26 fin keel sailing yacht for sale.  Designed by David Sadler and starting life in Holland, J2 has only had three owners from new and is comprehensively equipped for single-handed sailing having in the past completed a full circumnavigation around the British Isles.

She has been essentially maintained by her current owner and presents as being in sound condition and ready for the off.  Whilst set up for the solo sailor she will comfortably accommodate one or more crew members, bringing her renowned style and safe comfort to bear.  She represents the deep fin keel version for maximum performance in a seaway so will provide a thoroughly rewarding cruise for her next custodians - this is a lot of boat for somebody at a very accessible price.  Tender and outboard included
