This is a special, custom built Sabre 386, there is no other sistership like this one.  Originally built for a Sabre dealer’s personal use in Massachusetts, this model was modified to custom specification and has many upgrades. It has been in fresh water since 2010 in a climate that allows only 5-6 months of use per season. This particular model is designed for someone who appreciates the classic Sabre high-end quality inside and out, but still wants a boat that sails extremely well. 

Currently winter stored on the island at RCYC and may be seen with a scheduled appointment for serious inquiries/offers.
