Sabre owners have a pretty active presence on a Yahoo Group. Own a Sabre 28 mk II. Have found it to be a cut above the typical West Coast boat like the Erickson. They seem to have a reputation as a better quality boat reflected in the prices asked. Am extremely happy with the way my S28 behaves. Easy on the helm, always in control and capable of very nice daily runs. Averaged better than 7kts over the bottom for one 24 hour stretch on the delivery. Sabre is still in business though now making power boats exclusively. There are still people at the company from their sailboat days who can help you out with questions that might come up. The only major issue I've heard of is a mast stop reinforcement problem on some of the models. They apparently used a plywood reinforcement that can delaminate if allowed to come in regular contact with water. Don't know which models or what the repair entails if there's been a problem. One other issues, they fell victim to the yuppie demand for wheels so hard to find one with a tiller, got lucky with mine.
