Completely upgraded by marine professionals, under the supervision of a knowledgeable owner. The improvements include new sails, rigging, brightwork, cushions, safety package and a trailer designed for the Sanderling. The hull from keel to masthead has been routinely maintained by marine professionals. That includes annual paint, polish and brightwork done with 9 coats of varnish.
The photos don't do justice to the excellent condition her owner maintains. She is a must see vessel if you appreciate fine workmanship on a traditional vessel.....to say nothing about how much fun and space is jammed into a fine 18' sailing beauty.
These are great cruisers that are easy to sail and are roomy enough to spend the night. They have a large cockpit for their size and are very stable. Sanderling is one of the oldest continuously produced fiberglass boats on the market, yet her racing record is astonishing with many boats competing in established fleets.
She is a true classic showpiece in sail away condition ready to cruise today; so why buy new?
