Sabre 32, 34 MkI, 34 MkII
I own a 1985 Sabre 32 and previously owned an 1981 Sabre 28. And have sailed both Sabre 34 I and Sabre 34 II.
The Sabre 32 comes in basically three different interior configurations. 1) Classic w/ fold-down table, 2) Classic w/ wrap around settee and standing table and 3) An Aft cabin arrangement.
I have the (2) configuration. Which layout is best is matter of personal preference.
Orginally I was looking for a Sabre 34 I, but I came across a Sabre 32 that was in excellent condition so I went for it. As you know, the fine workmanship and sailing characteristics of Sabres'' are recognized by those who are familiar with them.
As far as the Sabre 34 II 1989/90+, I could not justify paying almost double the price for this new design. The improvements are good and well thought out but I can buy alot of beer with the $40-50K, I saved.
In any case, if you have any more specific questions about any of these models - let me know -or- post a question on SailNet Sabre list - they are quite helpful.
