This Sabre 28 is a very safe boat. |
It has relatively modern lines, yet is attractive to
traditionalists as well.
It is very well built, sails well & has great ambiance below with an all-teak interior.
construction details are among the best of any 28 ft production boat; secondary bonding,
attachment of bulkheads and structural members is almost always flawless.
