Sanderling is an extremely sturdy and beautiful yacht designed by Camper & Nicholsons, and built in the respected Halmatic Yard in Hampshire, England.

The beauty of her lines is surpassed only by the toughness of her build and the lavishness of her care by her owner. He bought her in 1999 and over the years has had her upgraded, rewired, replumbed, and painted. She has had extensive interior work, including a new cabin sole, head liner and too many other things to mention.

Just a few of her upgrades from around 2003 and on include....

  • Interior Upholstery and Cockpit Cushions
  • Re-wired
  • Re-plumbed
  • New Thru-hulls
  • New Interior Joinery
  • New Headliner
  • New Deck Hardware from Spartan Marine
  • New Standing Rigging
  • Central Heat and Air
  • New Sails
  • New Fuel Tank

The list goes on and on....

As an added bonus, the new owner will be given the original drawings done by Camper & Nicholsons.

If you appreciate a classic beauty, and one that has been restored and upgraded with an open checkbook, Sanderling may be for you.
