Feedback wanted on a Sabre
My wife and I are expect / hope to conclude a purchase in the next 2 - 6 months and we are trying to narrow our search for a coastal cruiser down to a few preferred models/ makes. We would appreciate any feedback on a 38 ft Sabre, either the mark I 80's version or the mark II.
From what I have seen at the local marina and on Yachtworld I like the layout, shape, quality etc.
I understand both have a balsa cored hull and we would expect to carefully examine any boat we become serious about, but before we start what are peoples opinions, and experiences.
Is the Chain Plate attachment a common problem ?
What about bulkheads ?
Any other issues common to Sabre to be aware of ?
Any information very much appreciated.
+ 60 and Looking to Sail !
