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
The 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
The 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
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
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.
