Broker's Comments

The sabre 27 is well known for her universal abilities as a coastal cruiser or equally at home on the rivers and inland waters. She can be easily sailed single handed
She has generous accommodation for her size, and is easy to handle under sail or power with a fair turn of speed and her thick hull lay-up will take a few hard knocks when you’re coming alongside. Her deck- stepped mast is slotted into a tabernacle and can therefore be easily lowered to get her under low bridges – ideal for canal use.
This vessel has been in the same family for 46 years and has cruised extensively abroad including tours to the Baltic and is fit to cruise. There is also a very active owners association which is supportive and the go to source for everything Sabre related.

These boat details are subject to contract.
