Sorry for joining this so late. I'm on travel to the Channel Islands - 2200 miles from the Bay!

Obviously, I'm a huge fan of Sabres. Victoria is our second (we had a 28 for 17 years) and they are extremely well made are no better than an IP. Just different. For a really great summary, pick ip a copy of The World's Best Sailboats - Vol II. Both are profiled. I do my own work and know these boats intimately from bow to stern, so if you have any questions, please IM me. I'll can answer most questions is reasonable depth, having owned the brand since 1987.

42 foot Sabre is an overpriced Catalina
Clearly, the writer has not spent much time on a Sabre. Sorry if that insults, but my father owned 3 Catalinas (22, 27, 30) and I worked for two dealers so I know those boats quite well too. One is a coastal cruiser and the other is offshore capable. I like Catalina, but the statement is not at all accurate.
