Re: Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

Two different types of boats. Sabre is a well made cruiser which is also a good performance and sailing boat. Very responsive and will go into the wind at a much closer angle than the Bristol. bristol is also a very well made boat, more of a cruiser. Sabre displacement 8800 lbs...sail area 432, Bristol 8650....sa..391. Sabre newer 30 hp Yanmar...Bristol 15 hp Universal. 30 hp yanmar is certainly not to big for the Sabre at all. Thats a big difference the newer engine if the boats are in the same condition otherwise.

For me all else equal....the Sabre is the choice.
