Thumbs up

Congrats on finding such a nice Sabre!
While I'm mostly an Ericson guy, I have done a coastal delivery on a Sabre 32, and really appreciate the build quality and general design.
I always class them up there with PSC, Ericson Yachts, and the older Tartans.

The maintenance stuff listed on that particular boat shows good stewardship from the prior owner.
You've chosen wisely.

Enjoy!

I would recommend against using a surveyor recommended by the broker. The broker works for the seller, not you, since that's where his money comes from.

BoatUS has a great list of surveyors. To be honest, they are your link to sanity. Their job is to point out the flaws. A good survey for this vessel should run about $1000 ($750 for the survey, $250 for the short haul) and take a full day including short haul and sea trial. In our case, our surveyor found a significant problem but actually saved the sale when I wanted to pull out. Best $1000 that I ever spent. PM me if you would like details.

The surveyor works for the buyer. The broker works for the seller.

If she surveys well, you just purchased a great vessel, that should give you years of great sailing. Congrats..

Nacra52 is on a distinguished road
My late father, who sailed his whole life and owned some really beautiful boats , like a Hinckley 44, had for many years a Sabre 30 that was kept in Little Traverse Bay, on Lake Michigan. I think it was the favorite of all the boats he owned, he constantly raved about how well it sailed, and how nicely it was made. I enjoyed many day sails out on the lake, and he and my mother sailed it all around the Great Lakes.

Nacra52, what a great story! My sponsors when I was at the Naval Academy had a Hinckley 44, one of the most beautiful boats I have ever seen and I felt fortunate every time I got to go out on her!

Eliptec Folding Prop for Sabre 42

I recently sold my Sabre 42 (that I only kept for one season due to draft issues in my area). But after selling it I realized I forgot to include a spare Eliptec folding prop with the boat. The new owner doesn't want it. Anyone interested? I took some picture of it. Costs about $1400 new. Its lightly used, all polished up. I would sell it for $100.
