"From the first Sabre Yacht I ever saw in the early 1970s, I was impressed with the company's quality of construction and attention to detail." ~ Jack Horner for Boats US

"The Sabre design team, headed by the company's founder Roger Hewson, was responsible for the Sabre 34. The model was introduced in 1977 at a time when it was common to blend in elements of IOR design though there was likely never any serious intention of creating a design that would seriously compete under the rule. The 34's hull shape clearly suggests an IOR influence however, without the extremes of the flat out racers of the day. The original Sabre 34 measured 33' 8" LOA, with a 10' 6" beam, 5' 6" draft and an approximate displacement of 11,300 lbs. A shoal draft centerboard version was also offered drawing 3' 11" board up. The design remained in production until 1984." ~ Jack Horner for Boat US
"The hull of the Sabre 34 is constructed of hand-laid fiberglass cloth and resin with substantial fiberglass encapsulated longitudinal and athwartship structural support. The deck and hull are through bolted on and inward flange and structural knees and bulkheads are securely attached. Cabinet and joiner work is among the best to be found on any production built boat. Access for inspection is generally good through the boat and it is rare to find any significant structural concerns..." Jack Horner for Boat US

"The accommodations of the Sabre 34 are the epitome of the standard interior. One I have referred to in the past as right out of Yacht Design-101. The layout features a V-berth cabin forward followed by a starboard side head and port side lockers, port and starboard settees in the main saloon with a table that folds up against the forward bulkhead. Aft there is a U-shaped galley opposed by a navigation table and quarter berth. The navigation station and galley may be reversed depending on the year of production. This layout is traditional, utilizes available space well, is functional and is just plain tough to beat on a boat of this size." ~ Jack Horner for Boat US
