Perfect for sailing, low hours on engine

The Sabre 28 has accommodations for six people in two cabins with a minimum of 5' 11" headroom throughout. There is a V-berth forward followed by an athwartship head compartment and port and starboard settees in the main saloon. The port side settee slides out to make a small double berth, a starboard side galley at the after end of the main saloon.
It does not have the usual quarter berth, but instead has countertop and huge storage lockers all the way across from the sink as can be seen in the photo that shows the radio and battery switch and battery charger readout. This also provides for more drawer storage then the standard layout. There are still berths for 5 people ( 2 in the v-berth, 2 in a settee that pulls out and makes a double and a single on the other settee). Also, in the cockpit this arrangement provides a huge locker storage in the space that would have been used by the quarter berth.
The layout of the Sabre 28 is functional although somewhat cramped by the manufacturer's attempt to cram in more accommodations than a 28' boat can practically be expected to handle.

With a relatively narrow beam, a ballast/displacement ratio of less than 40%, and a sail area/displacement ratio of 20.8 the Sabre 28 is a little more tender than her robust appearance might suggest. However, sailing performance is quite good in a variety of wind conditions when the right sail combination is used

She is equipped with the standard engine a 13 hp MD7A Volvo marine diesel.
