1977 Saber 28 located in Massachusetts for sale

28' Saber 28


Description: Sabre 28: Built in 1977, this boat is an American classic that was easy to fall in love with and has been hard to let go. The time has come. Beginners and experts alike flock to the Saber 28, a safe and exciting sail for all those seaworthy. Sailset: new Doyle mainsail, 170% Genoa (old), 120% genoa (new),  80% jib (new), storm jib  (old), asymmetrical cruising spinnaker (old).  Auxiliary power is the original Atomic 4 engine.

From "The hull of the Sabre 28 is solid fiberglass and polyester resin. The deck is balsa-cored for stiffness with plywood core at high stress areas such as winch mountings. The deck-to-hull joint uses an inward flange and is securely fastened with stainless steel bolts on approximately 6" centers. You will find the construction details of the Sabre 28' among the best of any 28-foot production boat on the market. Secondary bonding and attachment of bulkheads and structural members is almost always flawless. The Sabre 28 has accommodations for six people in two cabins with a minimum of 5' 11" headroom throughout. There is a V-berth forward followed by an athwartship head compartment and port and starboard settees in the main saloon. The port side settee slides out to make a small double berth. There is a starboard side galley at the after end of the main saloon. The Sabre 28 is rigged as a masthead sloop with a deck stepped mast and single spreaders. The Sabre 28 is a better-than-average quality product. For a couple or a family with one or two small children in the market for a quality, mid-priced cruising boat, this is a hard one to beat."
