Pros:
Cons:

Great boat. We especially like the large cockpit and efficient interior layout-no wasted space. Construction is very solid. 5 foot draft is good for all around performance, Requires 150 genoa in light air. In heavy air, we use a 110 and double reefed main. Lots of teak trim on deck makes her look very sharp, but also requires a lot of attention. Standard 13hp Volvo still going strong. Overall, we think the Sabre 30 is one of the best 30 footers available.

Pros:
Cons:

A great all-around boat (this is the Mark III version). Light air performance is excellent. Tends to be a bit tender in winds above 10 knots true, but can be managed. The mid-boom traveler can be tough to move in heavy air. A very pretty boat to look at.

Pros:
Cons:

A very well built, nice-looking, small cruiser. I've had a number of people ask when I had the hull painted - they're always surprised at the condition of the original gelcoat. The teak interior has held up equally well. Best feature is sailing ability - excellent all around.

Pros: Sails very well, built very well, beautiful
Cons: None so far...

I did a LOT of reading through posts, books, info, and saw much talk about upgrades to strengthen & improve many boats...and when working on our Sabre, I see most were done as standard. Good to see Sabre builds to quality. Aluminum backing plates behind everything. Tanks vented properly, wiring good, bulkheads & stiffeners tabbed to hull, thru-hulls double hose clamped...lots of other details that speak to quality.

She sails very well... responsive, fast, solid. Comfortable below for us (2 adults and I am 6'1). Good access to engine and most components.

Looking forward to many years enjoying this great boat.

Pros: Great sailing in light air , forgiving boat and stands up in heavy air. Low maintentence,
Cons: none

Great sailing in light air , forgiving boat and stands up in heavy air. Points well - likes a broad reach. Low maintentence, plenty of room and storage - quality teak interior and bunk cushions. Good water/fuel/holding tank capacity. Ejoyable for cruising Chesapeake, Delaware Bay and off shore.
