SABRE 38 Sloop
The Sabre 38 is a fine example of a contemporary cruising sail boat. It has evolved well. it is very difficult to develop a cruising sailboat and keep the vessel looking trim and fine. Space is always a primary concern and in the process of obtaining space, much of the vessels beauty is lost. This boat is 38' 8" on deck with a 12' 4" beam.
