1976 Sabre 28 mkii Sloop Sailboat in Dartmouth, Massachusetts

Stock #133231

Sabre sailboats have long been known for having great bones and this one is no exception. The hull was laid up before boat manufacturers knew just how strong fiberglass could be.

The hull is in great shape, rock solid and much thicker than today's production boats which are comparatively paper thin relative to this one.

There was only one soft spot in the rear of the cockpit which was cut out and replaced.

Add to this an owner, trained as an aircraft mechanic, who completely rebuilt all systems including replacing the original Universal Atomic 4 which could not be rebuilt

This restoration took place in the backyard of his house starting in 2009 and completed in 2014. His sons kidded him throughout this project saying, "Dad, it's a boat, it doesn't have to fly."

During the restoration, the following was replaced or installed:

- New standing rigging 2013.

Today this boat is ready to sail with all systems ready to fly. The upholstery below deck could use recovering, but that's just lipstick.

This remarkable attention to detail even included retro fitting the ice chest drain with an electric pump because he didn't like it simply draining into the bilge.

Information On Condition

After a 5-year restoration project, this classic 40-year-old boat is more seaworthy than most newer boats.
