Manufacturer Info



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.
