‘Maggie May’ is a bilge keel Sadler 25 built in 1981, Drawing appx 1m10. She sails really well and is solid; a Sadler after all. Everything is of an age but works as it should. She is a tourer, not a racer.

Having been moored in Lymington for a winter without much attention, (apart from a Karcher-cleaned hull in April), she needs a tidy up and paint and could use a new UV strip on the Genoa.

By separate sale I also am also offering my 10ft rigid unsinkable Scandinavian tender and 5hp Yamaha 4-stroke outboard (appx 400 hours), with engine stand/trolley, fuel tank, spare oars, anchor and road trailer. All of it runs well, needs a good tidy but nothing much more. (£500) only after Maggie is gone.

Maggie can be sailed away or I will dismast and can put her on the road trailer for the same price.

Price: £8,000 (with road trailer).
