The official SSOA website.


Our Association aims to provide a resource for all Sadler and Starlight Owners, with additional benefits and access to pages for those who are members of the Association.

You will find an interesting discussion forum which provides a wealth of owner knowledge for all of our yachts, regularly updated news regarding rallies and meetings, a page to upload your own cruising stories and much more.

We have also launched a Facebook page (members only) for more informal communication, photo sharing and providing an easy way to keep in touch with fellow members.

We have also launched a new For Sale section which we hope will prove useful for selling on equipment, books and even boats!

If you are not already a member we would urge you to join and contribute to the ongoing success of the Association  – it’s a bargain at £17.00 for an annual subscription.
