Sadler Seawych 19 sailing yacht boat with sails
Recently partially refurbished
project which I’ve been slowly working on for 3 years, with a few jobs left for
the new owner to complete it they wish. Affectionately named “Mudshark”
or more recently “Tarka”.
The Seawych is a 19ft
bilge keel trailer-sailor, sleeps 4 people in 1 double bed and 2 single berths.
Decent 4’6” headroom, and approx. 6’6” berths. There’s a single toilet and
small galley with single camping stove and sink with manual hand pump tap. There’s
plenty of locker space for storage. Have a Google for more information if
you’ve not seen them before.
Very rare setup; originally
fitted with internal petrol engine which has since been removed, however the
driveshaft, fuel connectors and exhaust fittings are still installed if wishing
to re-convert. An outboard mount is fitted if you wish to add a long shaft
outboard (not included).

interior with new carpet and backrests reupholstered. Seat cushions recently DIY
reupholstered too (slight fabric colour mismatch, but close enough). Galley
backboards recovered with vinyl. New LED interior lights and solar panel
charger have been installed – although final wiring, solar panel, nav lights
and battery need completing. Removable table-top that converts to double bed which
has had a couple of rough coats of epoxy and would benefit a heavy sand/varnish.
Sink with space below for fresh and waste-water carriers (not included).
Original toilet under the bow berth unchecked or tested.
Rigging and sails
Custom made stainless
A-Frame permanently fitted to the bow, making single-handed raising and
lowering of the mast etc a simple task (fantastic feature!). Original roller reefing mainsail on
boom, and roller furling head-sail. Both in good used condition. Halyards, topping
lift and furling lines recently replaced with new. Main-sheet could do with
being replaced. Rigging is in reasonable condition although old, and I’d recommend replacing some turnbuckles. Port and starboard original winches with winch handles included. If I were keeping, I’d fit a simple back-stay tensioner and possibly
bring the lines back to the cockpit.
Main sail and jib in good, clean and still pretty crisp condition. Jib sheets tied on. Been stored inside in the dry since I bough the boat.
Cockpit / deck
Deck in reasonably good
condition with original gel coat. Some small chips and cracks, with some having
been repaired and some not.
New cockpit locker tops
recently made from 12mm plywood and roughly epoxied, would benefit a
sand/varnish to look better and give UV protection. Grab handles and hatch
surround have been sanded and would benefit from the same. Original Houdini
hatch has been removed and fully refurbished with all new seals. Has a slight
leak so would benefit some sealing. Custom sprayhood fitted on stainless frame,
recently washed and in good condition. The plastic tracks it feeds into are a
little tight and could benefit from changing to metal.
Hull and keels
The hull is in good condition with no
significant damage or wear. A single coat of antifouling recently applied, with
around half a tin supplied to apply a second coat. The surface was lightly
sanded but isn’t smooth. The blue painted hull sides have some fender/rope rub
but are largely in good condition. Keels and shoes in good condition, port keel
has a tiny amount of weeping rust from the front.
Tiller and rudder in good varnished condition
with some marks/old repaired damage.
Good overall condition
with bearings recently removed, checked and re-greased. Brand new tyres fitted in
March 2019, the spare a bit perished but usable in a pinch. Brakes free and in
working order with one side’s pads recently de-laminating from their shoes, but
have since been 2-part epoxied and clamped so is good to tow, although I’d recommend
replacement pads if you plan to tow far or regularly. Winch and jockey wheel
Included is an anchor (but no chain, just some
old warp), small gas camping stove, a selection of fenders/ropes/warps and a
boarding ladder. Yellow horseshoe buoy and bracket installed to starboard
push-pit, along with Ensign on the stern. 6m x 4m tarp included which is good
to winter cover ashore.
There’s a small spares
box including shackles/pins etc. I’ll also try to include my printed Seawych
owner’s manual if I can find it (otherwise available from the Seawych Owners
Association – which I highly recommend joining).
I’ve some spare fabric, plus wire curtain line and hooks, which should be enough to fit curtains if desired.
There’s also a
light-board / extension cable, and ratchet straps/ropes to secure to the
Overall a fantastic
practically ready to go boat for its age with almost everything you need to get
you on the water, plus some small projects left to make it your own.
I’ve listed the boat at what I feel is a fair
price given the condition and what’s included, and how much has been spent on
it (a lot more than I’m asking!). That being said, I’m open to reasonable
offers near the asking price.
Naturally the boat is sold as seen and not
necessarily as described. Viewing / collection is available just outside
Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. A £100 deposit upon confirmation by PayPal/bank
transfer is preferred, with the rest either in cash on collection – or cleared
bank transfer before collecting. The boat is advertised on classifieds
