Re: Sabre 30 vs Sabre 32

Where the heck do you guys get your information?? The Sabre 30-1,2,3 have a beam of 10.5. The 32 has a beam of 10.5, the 28 had the beam of 9.17. Please don't make uninformed conclusions from bad information. As a former 28 owner I'm petty familiar with these boats. The 32 had an aft cabin model which was kind of neat and very suitable for Lake Erie where I sail. There are differences between the -1,2,3 models of the 30. My preference would be the 30-3 which has a double spreader rig. My bias is more towards racing. As a cruiser the 32 would be the choice.

The reason the 32 was discontinued was the introduction of the 34-2 which was a lot more boat for the money at the time. In 86 Sabre had the 30-3, 32, 34-2, 36, 38. In 88 they had the 30-3, 34-2, 38-2. Obvious line reduction due to luxury tax influenced retraction in the sailboat market.
