General Details


 Our stock 38 Sabre offers the latest in design and navl architecture.  Her exterior profile showcases a "downeast" and is built in the Maine tradition:  beautiful, strong, steady, reliable and seaworthy.  Technology abounds with her resin infused laminates and pod drive propulsion which provides more area for interior space and good fuel economy.

The interior showcases an open design suited to a day's outing with family and friends.  The main salon hosts a large, U-shaped settee which surrounds an inlaid table.  The forward end of the settee can be oriented forward to provide a comfortable forward facing seat while underway.  To starboard and aft of the Stidd helm seat is a long cherry cabinet housing an LED television on a lift.

The forward end of the salon opens to the galley below.  Just forward you'll find access to the owners cabin with a walk around berth and ample storage as well as a private head with stall shower.  You'll find the master TV cleverly hidden in a bulkhead and when not in use, will disappear into the galley cabinetry, opening up the stateroom thru to the galley.  Below the helm deck and to port, and L-settee converts to a second sleeping accommodation.
