Maryland law could lead to more marine tourism

Superyachts might travel more frequently through the waters of Chesapeake Bay and dock at the broad berths of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor under a new state law.

Signed Tuesday by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, the law allows for pleasure boats between 80 and 200 feet and with a draft of less than 12 feet to move through state waters without bringing a licensed bay pilot on board.

Considered “emergency” legislation, the law took effect Wednesday, in time for the boating season, advocates said.

“Previously, bay pilots had to come on board these vessels, even if it was for a short dinner cruise or movement to fuel piers, which was a deterrent to these kinds of vessels visiting the Chesapeake Bay,” Jessie Bowling, of Baltimore Marine Centers, which operates five marinas in the harbor, told the Baltimore Sun.

“The passing of this new legislation means huge tourism spending and more jobs for the marine industry in Maryland,” Bowling said. “These vessels spend tens of thousands of dollars alone on one fuel bill, plus money on provisioning, local entertainment, tourism and repairs.”

The law could have similar effects on other communities with berths in the bay, such as Annapolis, supporters said.

Bowling said her company got the idea for the legislation from yacht operators who used to berth in Baltimore, but began skipping the bay on their seasonal trips between the Northeast and the Caribbean — citing the inconvenience of needing to hire a bay pilot every time they had to move their vessel.

“When they have to go get fuel at our fuel pier, and you’re talking about a few yards, they would have to have a pilot on board,” Bowling said.

With the pilot requirement gone, Bowling said she hopes to start attracting more yacht captains back to Baltimore.

The law applies to foreign-flagged yachts or American ones that engage in foreign trade, which account for a large percentage of the yachts that travel along the Eastern Seaboard. Flagging a yacht in a foreign country can diminish overhead costs. American-flagged yachts that do not engage in foreign trade already were allowed to travel in Maryland waters without a bay pilot.

Legislative analysts predicted that the law will not cost the state anything. The bill passed unanimously in the Senate and House.

Erin Montgomery, a Hogan spokeswoman, said the governor’s “No. 1 priority is economic development” and the yachting measure will “increase tourism revenue.”

Jay Dayton, a board member of the U.S. Superyacht Association, said in a statement that large yachts “have many choices on where to spend their time and money, so attracting them to the Chesapeake will have a very positive impact on local business.”

What color hull is your Sabre?

If you had your pick, what color would your Sabre be?

Did you know that if you were to buy a Sabre Yacht, you could paint your hull any color you choose? Well, technically it’s gel coat but either way…. your brand new hull could be pink if you wanted it to be!  My personal favorite is Claret (a beautiful deep red).

Here at Sabre, we consider ourselves semi custom boat builders. When you buy a boat through Sabre Yachts, you work with your broker and Lynn Beaudoin, Sabre’s National Sales Manager, to personalize your boat — to make it your own. “I have found the happiest boat owners are the ones where we’ve built the boat suited for their individual cruising needs”.

Lynn says, “Each boat owner is different. Some want to cruise off shore for weeks at a time — those customers need multiple refrigerators to store their food in. Some want a custom wine storage area so they can collect wine from various ports they visit. Each owner is different!

Speaking of different. How about this for individuality? Now that’s a unique paint job! This Sabre owner ordered Sabre white gel coat and had this fancy decal added to the hull.

Top Five Highlights of the Sabre 38 Salon Express

Posted: 11 Jul 2013 09:01 AM PDT

The Sabre 38 Salon Express, the latest member of the Sabre family, is everything you’re looking for. She’s built in the Maine tradition; beautiful, strong, reliable and seaworthy. Here are the top five highlights!

#5 – Fuel Economy & Performance style

Sabre 38 in Portland MaineThe Sabre 38 hull, the latest thinking in seagoing vee-hulled motor yachts, is specifically designed for the installation of pods lines which offer increased fuel economy. The Sabre 38 rides comfortably at 25 knots with 22.5 GPH (Gallons per hour).

#4 — Main Salon 

Sabre 38 in Portland MaineThe main salon of the 38 is ideal for either large gatherings or a nice family dinner. The spacious salon feels open and airy with large opening side windows and a bi-fold door. The flexibility of the seating allows for a generous mate’s lounge underway, or a full U-shaped settee for relaxing, entertaining, or dining.

#3 – Expandable Cockpit

Sabre 38 in Portland Maine

The sliding seat allows for great seating flexibility and maximizes the use of this wonderful open air space. It’s important to note that the seat arrangement doesn’t come at a cost of swim platform area, and the sliding feature can be used even with a tender stowed on the swim platform.  Another ‘jewel’ here is the stainless steel door system which serves to join the cockpit space with the Salon seamlessly.

# 2 — Drivability


Excellent site lines are a result of a careful study of helm ergonomics along with the careful design of the hull surfaces; the responsiveness to the helm is exceptional at every speed.  Standing at the helm with wide open speeds above 30kts with a smooth, confident ride and sport boat like handling will put a smile on the face of any skipper.

#1 – Visibly blended spaces 

Sabre 38 in Portland Maine

The interior sight lines are so open, that it’s possible to see from the swim platform all the way to the pillows atop the queen sized master berth up forward.  The interior has spectacular flow owing to the deliberate blending of the social spaces.  What does that mean? It means that all the social areas on the boat are open to each other and that light and air can flow through the interior as easily as your conversations will.   One reviewer compared this to having great Feng-Shui. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
