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

You dont want to be the last boat to the party everytime I wouldnt think..hahahaa. The Sabre will never be that for sure. It will also sail better into the wind as the jib tracks are close to the cabin while the bristols are more outboard. Think about what sloopjonB said 1/2 minute a mile. So you are cruising and want to make at least 50 miles a day on coastal hops. You get there 25 minutes earlier. Maybe the difference between getting to the anchorage or getting caught in the T storm.

Which ever opne made you gyys feel like it was home ois the one you should choose,but the new Yanmar is a 10,000 upgrade should you go to sell this someday...just saying
