Re: What is your favorite manufacturer of sailboats?

Could have just had two options:
1. The maker of your boat
2. A different one

Didn't I just read that Sabre just announce that they are no longer building sailboats? Let's hope that changes soon as they are beautiful boats.

Sabre is done with sailboats. I mentioned Morris and Jboats because they're still in sailboat design and production. Hinckley is out, Alden closed their doors a few years ago.

Some of the bigger production builders are still building but much of the voting list, is history.

Re: What is your favorite manufacturer of sailboats?

Sabre stopped building Yachts at the end of 2012. We purchased the second to last 426 built to date. It really is a sweet boat. Their web site states:


At the current time, Sabre Yachts is not building any of itís sailing models.

While demand for sailboats has remained weak throughout the market, and is still well below recession levels, the demand for our power boats has never been stronger. Sabreís motor yacht business, along with our sister company Back Cove Yachtsís models, have made substantial market share gains over the last five years. Our staffing levels have returned to 2010 levels, and our volume of shipments is nearing pre-recession levels.

It would seem, while a excellent brand, they have not invested any new models for years, just offering two IIRC, its no wonder.
