Re: Might buy a Saber 34'
Too late, Dos. A Sabre34 for 10k? I just bought it.
Kidding. Only because I don't know where it is and can't move fast enough!
One thing to beware of on Sabre's in general, assuming this was the old Sabre company, is that they built "furniture class" interiors. If you need to get behind any of the cabinetry, you may have to literally climb inside and start a complicated disassembly project. And you way want to buy a fire ax for damage control access, in case you need access "now".
But they tend to be very well made, very nicely handling, and at that price GO LOOK before I find out where it is.(G)
As with any old cheap boat, deck, rigging, bulkheads, chainplates, engine, keel or centerboard...there can be many reasons for "cheap", caveat emptor and good hunting.
