After David Sadler designed the Contessa 32 he revisited the design rectifying the obvious errors on the Contessa and produced the Sadler 32 with better accommodation and a better sailing experience. ‘Allegretto’ is a lift keel version of this tried and proven sailing yacht. She comes with a Bukh 24 engine which has been well maintained. She has a complete set of sails including three spinnakers, 2x genoas, and fully battened main. Lines are all led to the cockpit and with her Harken roller reefing on the genoa, she is easily sailed short or single handed.
Her lifting keel is hydraulically operated from the cockpit and is easily lifted and dropped. When up she draws just 1.07m opening up the shallowest of anchorages and moorings. When down her draft is 1.98m giving her excellent windward sailing capability.
For longer passages, she is fitted with a Neptune wind vane and a Raymarine ST 2000 electronic tiller pilot.
The Sadler 32 has five berths, a large saloon area with good head height, heads forward and a galley with oven, grill and two burners. Refrigerator..

Sailed from Christchurch to Brittany last season; Lifting keel made the passage up the shallow River Rance to Dinan a joy!
Classic looks and shallow draft.
