FYS Comments

The Sadler 29 is a popular boat with the benefit of near unsinkability due to the double skinned hull that also offers good thermal and acoustic insulation. The boats were designed to provide good accommodation for cruising but without compromising the ability to have a good turn of speed.

“Gipsy” has been regularly updated by her current owner since 2007 and should prove a comfortable cruising yacht.


In this instance Fox’s Yacht Sales are acting as brokers for the vendor.  The vendor has provided the information and whilst we endeavour to ensure the accuracy, the details are believed to be correct but are not guaranteed.  Any prospective purchaser is advised to check the boat specification thoroughly and to employ at their expense a qualified marine surveyor and/or engineer to check the specification and condition of this craft and its equipment.
