I will give you the negatives for the boat, we had a 1983 Sabre 38...the mast support is prone to water damage, if it has not been fixed, it likely will need it...unless all the PO did a good job of maintenance. In the mid atlantic...about 4-8K to repair
it and the sole around it.
If you are over 50, getting in and out of the vberth is hilarious...whether head in or feet in - cannot be gracefully or without waking up the admiral...we did the gymnastics for almost two years before my wife said we need a center line
The good is that she sails wonderfully, predictable and well behaved in anything we threw at her. The board was great for the bay, almost did not need a depth...sail til you drag the board and turn away.
Quality throughout, and great support from the factory on my old boat. Ours had a generator and decent air. Westerbeke was easy to fix and get parts for (can get the same parts cheaper elsewhere)
Of all the boats I have owned, current one included - she was the favorite hands down...
