Boats built in Maine have a tradition of premium craftsmanship and classic American style, and the models produced by this Raymond-based yard are no exception. Sabre is quick to boast about the pride its craftsmen take in producing each semi-custom model. That pride is evident in the details, joinery and lovely lines of these Downeast-style boats that the company has dubbed “fast trawlers.”
Today, the motor yacht range consists of models from 38 to 54 feet in length, and configurations include Salon Express and Fly Bridge styles. In addition to exceptional engineering and detail work, the boats offer impressive performance, as each model cruises between 20 and 25 knots and offers a top-end speed of 30 knots plus. Sabre also manufacturers performance sailing yachts of medium displacement designed for blue water.
The Sabre 426 embraces the standards which have put Sabre's name atop the quality spectrum of boatbuilding for the last 30 years. Current Sabre owners and those who have followed the brand over time, will see details here which make it feel familiar. Details which make sense, which add to comfort, security and well being. Logical details that, above all, make each Sabre design a great safe and beautiful sailboat. But details from the past are just part of the story. Keeping up with technology has to go hand in hand with our desire to build the finest possible sailing yachts for our clients. The Sabre 426 hull and deck will be built using vacuum bagged, closed cell, cross linked PVC foam and structural E Glass, which will give her one of the strongest, lightest, most durable structures available today. Hull lines, underwater appendages and rigs were drawn by Jim Taylor Yacht Design. The deck, deck styling and interior were accomplished by the Sabre Design Team. The result is a yacht which will, like her siblings, establish a benchmark in sailing that will endure for many years to come.
