About this Buchanan 34 SAXON

Alan Buchanan designs need little introduction. A master of his art, he had a gift for designing yachts that are easy on the eye, sail beautifully and are comfortable and seakindly in all conditions. Sael, a Saxon Class sloop built by Priors to Lloyds 100A1, has benefited from knowledgeable and careful owners from new and is presented for sale in really nice condition. Carvel Mahogany planking on Canadian Rock Elm frames. Copper fastened. White painted topsides with gold cove line (repainted 2018). Varnished Teak toe rail.

Now only for sale due to a change in family circumstances, she represents a wonderful opportunity to own a beautiful, head-turning classic yacht. The owner has recently upgraded the fuel system and re-antifouled, so Sael is ready to go.

Additional Comments

A previous owner of Sael commented: '...She was a beauty, built to Lloyds 100A1 in 1962 by Priors. She had nice accommodation in a classic, simple style, with a good heads and plenty of stowage - officially five berths, but better with three on board - plus great performance under sail; not at all sluggish. In the rough stuff, Sael was an absolute joy; dry, certain in movement and really capable...Buchanan had a knack of designing robust and attractive boats that performed well at sea, while being conservative rather than innovative inside. In my view it's a great but often underestimated formula. His boats look good and are a joy to own.'
