This Sabre 38 MKII Keel/CB has enjoyed a very high level of care and frequent equipment upgrades under her current long term ownership since 1991(please read the full specs for details). Typical of New England boats she is stored out of the water eight months a year. Since 2009 that has been in inside heated storage. These two stateroom performance cruisers afford spacious accommodations and wonderful sailing characteristics. For those who envision being in a slip, the fact that she has a bow thruster will be a huge plus!
Max Draft: 4'3"/8'
The Sabre 38 MK II accommodates up to seven in a two stateroom layout with 6'-4" headroom throughout (all berths & settees are 6'-6") with a full varnished teak interior with varnished teak and holly sole. There is abundant natural light and ventilation given her four large fixed ports and eleven opening ports along with three polished stainless steel dorades and two large and four smaller hatches. Artificial lighting is equally well addressed with swivel style reading lamps at each berth/settee as well as several overhead dome style lamps.
Starting forward is the Master Stateroom featuring a generous V-Berth below which there are large cargo drawers. Above the berth the hull is lined with varnished ash "ceilings" and a full length teak storage shelf. Aft and to starboard is a hanging locker while opposite to port is a dressing seat with storage under and two lockers outboard as well as a small vanity and sink with H&C pressure water.
Next aft is the Main Salon with L-Settee that makes out into a double berth to port and straight settee to starboard. Both settees have tankage and some storage under. Behind the settees there is storage as well as in teak lockers and shelves above. Dining is from a foldaway table that stows at the forward bulkhead when not in use. Hidden behind the table is a glass/storage rack.
The aft facing Nav. Station is just aft of the starboard settee and features a bench seat, flip top type chart table with chest of drawers below. The yacht's electrical distribution panels are above as are navigational instruments and storage in two lockers.

Aft of the galley is the private Aft Cabin with queen width berth above where the hull is lined with varnished "ceilings" and then under deck lockers. Forward of the berth is a dressing seat outboard and then a large hanging locker.

This Sabre 38 MKII has had great care under the current long term second ownership. She has been seasonally used in New England and under both owners and has been stored inside during the off season since 2009. Given her extensive upgrading, we believe she is very attractively priced and should be seriously considered by those looking for a great performing cruising sailboat affording the privacy that a two stateroom layout offers. A huge plus for those who would be keeping her dockside is the bow thruster.
