Location

Canvey Island

The Sadler 29 is a well-proven and seaworthy family cruiser with impeccable manners and crisp performance. Con Brio is a well cruised, shallow keel example, having taken her current owner as far afield as Ireland and Turkey from her berth in Essex. Basically equipped but well maintained, the new owner has even applied five coats of Gelshield. She is competitively priced and benefits from being in the same ownership for the last 33 years. The owner bought the boat through Clarke & Carter in 1991 and we are delighted to be listing this boat again after all that time.
