The Sadler 34 yacht has ancestry which can be traced directly back to the Contessa 32, also designed by David Sadler. The Sadler 34 is the largest of the Sadlers and has all the qualities of a true classic offshore yacht.
Her sleek, purposeful profile, moderate beam, generous displacement and undistorted hull lines all point towards a powerful cruising yacht, one whose design is based on what the sea demands, rather than what fashion dictates.
Referred to as timeless, comfortable, elegant and remarkable in performance and dependability the Sadler 34 is popular with families and has the ability to go further than the next marina.
The Sadler 34 has been used for a number of significant offshore passages:
1986 David Katz a uses Sadler 34 to retrace Columbus’ steps from Spain to the Caribbean.
1989 Tom de Ruiter returns from a four year 35,000 mile single-handed circumnavigation in a Sadler 34
1988 Several Sadler 34s entered in the Two-handed Transatlantic Race. Positive feedback made towards basic structural integrity and strength of the hull and deck.
The Sadler 34 has changed little over the years. However, the new deep and shallow fin keels, designed by Stephen Jones have improved hydrodynamics and lower centre of gravity these have added even more power and performance.
