Sabre 38

As I look around for a used boat I am considering a Sabre 38. The Mark I was apparently built from around 1981-87 and the Mark II from around 1988-95. The brochures for both are available and I have looked at them. The Mark II is about 1000 lbs heavier. I cannot tell any other substantial differences but would like some thoughts if anyone has some. I can probably afford a later Mark I or an early Mark II. Thanks.

The Mark I version I remember had a somewhat non-traditional layout, with an aft navigator''s/captains cabin, and the main saloon forward of that. It seemed to me that it pushed the dining table a bit far forward, which might turn it into a good catapult launcher for soup in rough weather. The teak joinery looked ok though. It depends upon how you''re planning to use the boat and how it works for you.

According to the Sabre brochure the MKI came in "classic" and an aft cabin layouts. As you mention the dining area in the aft cabin layout is pretty far forward but not so with the classic layout.

I think also you''ll find the portlites on the Mark II are more modern in shape, giving it a more updated look.
