Sadler - Barracuda

The Sadler Barracuda is a fast, seaworthy, exciting and surprisingly docile design by Tony Castro. She was designed to be lightning fast off the wind yet easily handled by a small crew and was unsinkable. She is easily handled by two but has berths for eleven - at a pinch. Her long waterline and hull shape give her a good turn of speed and her twin rudders give control and manoeuvrability. Her hydraulic lifting keel will help you reach the shallow ports and anchorages most other boats cant reach.

For some years in the 1990s a Barracuda held the record for the Royal Southampton Y C two-handed Round the Island Race.

A recent survey showed no osmosis on the hull.

This boat has had a lot of work done in recent years and now needs a new owner to enjoy the grin that you get at 20+ knots.


There are 3 double cabins, 2 aft and one in the bow.

The saloon will provide another 4 berths if you need them and will happily seat 8

There are 2 heads, one with a shower both with Jabsco Twist and Lock heads

The galley has good storage and a double burner stove with oven and grill
