The Sadler 29 is a well proven and seaworthy family cruiser with impeccable manners and crisp performance. Ragamuffin is a highly sought after twin keel version offering the opportunity to take the ground and explore creeks whilst still providing a fun and dynamic sailing experience. She is competitively priced and benefits from a new mast and standing rigging in 2011 and the engine was also overhauled in 2015.
