A common sense daysailer-weekender offering the spaciousness and comfort found only in larger boats. Easy to single hand, or to sail with the kids, she is a safe and stiff boat. Her size, positive flotation, and stability even allow for short offshore passages. Nevertheless, her racing record is astonishing, with many boats competing in established fleets in New Jersey, Long Island Sound, Chesapeake Bay and elsewhere. Sanderling is one of the oldest continuously produced fiberglass boats on the market. Marshall Marine has built over 600 of them since 1962. All lines are handled from the cockpit. No headsails or backstays to worry about. In a sudden squall, you can "reef" by simply dropping the peak of the sail. By design, catboats have a large beam, thereby accomplishing a stiff and stable plane of sailing. The cockpit on the Sanderling is self-bailing; coamings are high to keep out water. The boat possesses positive flotation, and cannot sink if holed or capsized. In addition to sailing upright, the boat offers a spacious cockpit. The cabin is surprisingly roomy below for the size of the boat, and is large enough for truly ample accommodations. All boats are built with alternating layers of woven roving fiberglass, and 1 1-2 ounce fiberglass mat. Special Airex coring is used in the cabin tops where a full fiberglass laminate would add too much weight. Each boat has wood trim and quality joinerwork. Fiberglass construction keeps costs of ownership to a minimum. Many owners store their boats on trailers and do their own work in the comfort of a garage. Marshall Marine do not have dealers, as they feel selling directly maintains a contact between builder and buyer, thus establishing a good relationship between both parties. Their boats now number over l200, and are sailed from Maine to Florida, the Gulf Coast, and the Caribbean.
