Spellbinder

Spellbinder is a Sadler Starlight 39, a fast performance cruiser built in 1991.  She has a 'Training Yacht' configuration, with a third cabin in place of the second heads giving a maximum of eight berths.

PYC bought Spellbinder from BP when the club was formed and she has served us very well. However over the years she has become less competitive in races because the handicapping system has favoured newer boats so we have decided it is time to replace her with a newer cruiser racer. She is currently being offered for sale with two local brokers; Waterside and Boatshed.

IRC rated.
