Looks like you get the traditional rig on the Sabre and likely a roller furler main on the Catalina 36 MKII. For me, that's a huge plus. If you've never sailed a roller furler main, it's rather nice.

I've looked at quite a few Catalina 36's lately and they seem to wear rather well - especially the interior.
Performance-wise, roller-furler mains are inferior.
