Funky name that belies her performance which is sparkling but tracks well with grace - "Take the practicality of a sturdy British twin keeler, add liberal quantities of pace, style and space, and what do you have? A boat the likes of which has never been seen before" said Practical Boat Owner when they tested the Sadler 290 by Steven Jones and Sadler Yachts.
Steven Jones and Sadler have rewritten the rule-book with the Sadler 290, designing what many people feel is the ultimate small cruising yacht.
The Sadler 290 is a revolution in yacht design, combining the go anywhere practicality of twin keels with the sailing performance of a fin. With a high aspect ratio, fractional rig and two hydrodynamic lead keels the Sadler 290 is ideal for fast sailing in tidal areas.
The design and construction of the keels gives a low centre of gravity for optimum righting ability and near 50% displacement ratio giving excellent performance and stability under sail.
Modern construction techniques makes for a strong, lightweight, fast and roomy hull with high quality interior. Six full length berths and 6' 2" headroom makes for real live-aboard comfort and long distance capability.
The Sadler 290 is also spacious on deck. The wide, deep cockpit is totally enclosed and designed for safe and easy handling of sails, whilst at anchor the hinging transom gives access to a bathing platform and ladder.
