Bilge (twin) keels

Broker notes

Via Maris is one of the more recent Sadler 29s, built 1987 and owned/sailed for the past 22 years by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable sailor.

Because of increasing years and for health reasons the vendor is now having to give up sailing and this much loved 29 is now seeking a new owner.

The popular 29 with twin keel version providing shallow-draft cruising and powered by the reliable Volvo 2002 18hp engine, with new standing rig in 2009, slab reefing, anchor windlass, Stowe electronics and ST1000 autohelm, this 29 should provide for modest family cruising.

Asking price now reduced and the Vendor will be interested in any reasonable offer.
